Bringing Home A Taste Of Hyderabad

My good friend Lucky Murari got married recently and that took me to his hometown, Hyderabad.

The last time I went to Hyderabad was during my 12th grade when our batch went on a 6 day pleasure trip.

A lot has changed since then. The current state of Telengana was still part of Andra Pradesh. You might find this hard to believe, I disliked travel back then and hated train journeys even more.

But soon it became an obsession and started growing on me. I started writing down every thing in my life, and it grew to a point where I didn’t want to do something, cuz, if I did, I would have to write it down in here. I felt it during the Tata Jagriti Yatra where I had to note down the details somewhere so that I would remember it when I was blogging here. It was not fun anymore.

Day Out in Mumbai

The boarding point of Tata Jagriti Yatra was Bombay. My mom’s sister lives in Bombay, so the plan was to come here a day early and spend a day in Bombay.
