Description

Hyderabad Hazir Hai: Writing from the City of Nizams holds a mirror to the city that is not only historically rich and glorious but has also in recent times emerged as a booming economic hub.

Hyderabad is a city that you can never have enough of once you fall in love with it. The intent is to capture the city’s matchless indefatigable spirit that echoes in the heart of every Hyderabadi. The unique blend of ancient history and modern technological growth positions it in a league of its own, the ornate quaint beauty of the Deories and the towering skylines in Cyberabad and the resplendent new GMR Hyderabad International Airport.

This collection consists of a series of articles on Hyderabad by a kaleidoscopic range of contributors all of whom have been bewitched by the city’s charms. Covering topics as vast as the history of Hyderabad, Nizams and courtesans, emergence of Dakhni, Deodis of Hyderabad, sports, Hyderbadi food, its emergence as an IT hub, the new cosmopolitan culture, jewellery, art, and theatre, it is treat for the true blue Hyderabadi as well as for all those people who desire a tryst with the city of pearls.
