Looking back at the year….

How time is running so fast,feeling as if we celebrated new year yesterday and now we are at the end of the year 2010.

There has been many up and downs in this year. Health has suffered a lot but putting all these things aside this year has fabulous and wonderful.The first was coming back home and making the kids settle in their new school and surroundings.Its a nice feeling to be with mom after 8 years of coming out from the house and also to be near to sisters.

Met friends after a gap of 6 years and now still few are there whom i am planning to catch up soon.

Now about virtual friends,now they are just a phone call way.Hardly called anyone when i was in Dubai but here i am keeping in touch with them through sms.

Old laptop is spoiled beyond repair all the data is still there in the laptop.Good thing is got a new chocolate colour laptop.

Had a wonderful vacation in Canada.Myself and kids enjoyed a lot.

Lost  aunt due to old age.

Met Mama after 3 years,he is recovering from a head injury in which he lost his memory.That day was a happy family re-union where mama and mom hugged each other and he recognized mom which was much to everyone surprise as he lost his memory.Both cried of happiness.

This year Hyderabad is in chaos with bund for everything and fasting unto death has become a routine things.Then the drama of forcing the leader who is fasting to the hospital,then one leader secretly drinks juice and later government accepts his demand.One leader made fool of himself and he fasted for 8 days and went home empty-handed as govt didn’t accept his demand. Government was ready to accept a separate state but not the increase in the ex-gratia to farmers.Hope coming year will be peaceful in Hyderabad.

Weather also played havoc this year.There were too many cyclones and rains.The results was much crop were lots.Babus are busy demanding separate and poor farmers are on the verge to kill themselves as all their crops are lost and there is no hope from the government.

Has reduced a lot in this year after coming back to hyderabad.Just 3 kgs more of my ideal weight of 56 kgs.

Have a wonderful year ahead,may all your wishes get fulfilled in the coming year.Happy New Year.

Think before coming to City of Pearls

Dear Visitor to my city

Maybe i am rude to say that before coming to city of pearls ie Hyderabad (also known as cyberabad) think.If you have close friends,relative or acquaintance who will take you around the city in their own transport then you come and have a good time here.But if you don’t know anyone here you will be taken for ride by our beloved auto rickshaw walas.

They don’t charge you for the meter cause they hardly use the meter.They hate to use the meter which is tampered,if you don’t agree for the amount they ask you to pay,you have to talk to 10-15 autos.Even after getting an auto who uses the meter you end up paying 3 times more than the actual fare.

Now latest it that they have gone for a bandh (which has become so common to force the govt to accept their demands) for a hike in the minimum fare from Rs.12/- to Rs.14/-.Government agreed to their demands.Now when ever you agree to go by auto using the tampered meter then the auto walla will remove a card and checks the amount of the fare and you have to pay more than Rs.20-30 more than the actual tampered auto fare.

Don’t say no one has told you about the auto wallas of hyderabad.Any one from Hyderabad will echo the same.

Still if  you have decided to come to hyd,wait till the Sri Krishna Committee report on separate telangana state which will be submitted any time before 31st december.If it is for separate telangana or unified Andhra Pradesh there will be chaos in the city.If at all you have planned to come before 31st december 2010 then also you will find the city in big chaos as opposition party leader and ex-cm of Andhra Mr.Chandrababu Naidu is fasting unto death to meet his demands for increasing ex-gratia to the farmers.It is 7 days now and he is refusing to eat and govt is refusing to accept his demands and if something goes wrong then can’t predict what will happen in the state.

Otherwise you are welcome to the Hyderabad.It is a wonderful place to live.

All the best for your plans and regards
