Charminar

Since 2004 i am staying in this 'City of Pearls' (Hyderabad) many many things happened in my life, some are good to unforgettable while some are also not too good to be remembered. When we were in little kids i knew 'Charminar' but it was famous cigratte brand name in India! My dreams never see i will be there in this famous historical place with any of my siblings. After many years gone by now i often visit this place with our guests and friends, i have many pictures too. But my last visit will be most memorable one, as my brother had a chance to visit Hyderabad to attend national programme from his office. Amidst their tight scheduled we could have a little good time to visit Charminar and nearby shopping street. It may not be a great thing for other but for me it will be memorable one when you see your brother trying to capture 'Charminar' pics with his camera and tasting the famous mouth watering 'Hyderabad Haleem' and 'Hyderabad Biryani". To be frank, you will realised it is a real opportunity that you never have visitors from your family members nor any of your blood relatives where you are staying in the city more than four years. Out of many famous places there in Hyderabad city 'Charminar' will occupy one of the important places in my memory lines!

Traditional taste!

This 'Kumkhal'/'Umkhal' (walnuts) picture reminded me of our childhood days, in early morning me and my bothers often hurriedly rush to our neighbouring house where Pu Chalbuanga's cows will left 'kumkhal' as usual. Unlike the present times we hardly have other options of ready made eatable things from shops, we the village kids mostly depended on forest and other natural products. Many many things have changed now, we may find various ready made eatable things even in rural areas also but in sometimes my kind of taste could not avoid like this kind of natural products!

Pu Buanga Dictionay defines:
um-khal, (same as kumkhal.) n. the name of a tree and its edible fruit the stone of which looks like a three-lobed walnut. The kernel resembles an almond in flavour and is eaten as a nut. Where the tree grows the fruit is found on the ground in large quantities. Cows are extremely fond of these windfalls-ejecting the stones or seeds from their mouths in numbers when they are chewing the cud after feasting upon them. (El├Žocarpus robustus. Wenger.)

SUKOON 2010


SUKOON is an annual students festival organized by Students' Union, University of Hyderabad. One friend of mine told me that 'Sukoon' is Urdu word means 'contented' or 'peaceful happiness/ satisfaction'. Due to some conflicts in campus students politics the so called 'SUKOON' could not be held in last year. The two main parties in campus -SFI and ABVP always misunderstood each other in organizing SUKOON festival, so many internal political fight (poster war, physical attack, boycott of organizing committee, etc.) happened in this year also. After such a long wait and the prevailing rumours intruded our campus SUKOON 2010 came into reality at 7-10, April. It was held under a peaceful and enthusiastic manner, many thanks goes to organizing committee!

Here are some pictures of SUKOON 2010:

During SUKOON 2010 many stalls and entertainment services were available in our campus. The most inspiring stall to me was Louis Braille Stall by Visually Challenged Students, they displayed many interesting tools and instruments for visually challenged students. He is(see pic) the one who kindly demonstrated to me about the Chess Board for Blind. Though he could not see anything in his eyes but he didn't misplaced any of the single 16 pieces. I really appreciated his great work!
