About my native Place:

HYDERABAD, Andhra Pradesh, India – The city of Hyderabad is unique in many ways. It is a rare Islamic relic in the largely Hindu environs of South India, once ruled by Nizam of Hyderabad, one of the richest men on earth. The elegant and graceful lines of the Mughal architecture are reminiscent of North India, and the Hyderabadi cuisine, rich in spices, laden in marinated meat layered in saffron rice, is famous throughout India. True to her erstwhile ruler’s penchant for jewels, Hyderabad remains well known for its glorious pearls, from translucent white to pink to gold to the exotic black.

Hyderabad, the current capital of Andhra Pradesh, plays host to over 1300 IT companies. The city is often referred to as Cyberabad (Cyber city) and houses the Indian headquarters for leading IT giants like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Wipro, Motorola, DELL, to name a few. Hyderabad’s IT industry alone is said to have fetched US$ 7.4 billion from exports in 2008-09.
