CHRISTMAS 2008 AT HYDERABAD
Here goes my CHRISTMAS 2008 at Hyderabad. On Christmas day i went out and witness the beautiful decoration everywhere in the city and people of all ages are enjoying their holidays either with friends or family. I had a special lunch / food to celebrate this Christmas. Youngsters are busy for christmas party as well and the parks, public places are very pack on this day and for the rest life out here is normal as usual. Of course i am glad to receive many smses from near and dear ones and also through email of sincere wishes in this beautiful season. Due to recession people are not spending money though huge discount is going on in every shopping malls and market. Style of celebration is different in every parts of the world. so if i compare the way of celebration from the north east region its very much different. Any way the season of Christmas is grand festival for the christians all over the world and the way we celebrate are different according to traditions and culture of each region. Thanks to Almighty God for his protection, love, guidance and beautiful life he bestowed on me throughout the year of 2008.
HUSSAIN SAGAR LAKE
The picturesque lakes of Hyderabad have contributed to its immense beauty and tourist attraction. The lakes offer a fabulous time for holiday makers and water fiends. The Hussain Sagar is one such lake. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it connects the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. The Hussain Sagar was built on a tributary of the Musi river by Hussain Shah Wahi during the reign of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah in 1562. It is a sprawling artificial lake that holds water perenially.
On the banks of the placid waters of the Hussain Sagar a water front or bund was constructed to arrest the flow of water on the other side. The "Tank Bund", as it is called, has become a busy motorable road for both light and heavy vehicles. The Bund is adorned on one side with 33 statues of the great luminaries of Andhra Pradesh. They seem to be a silent witness to the changing colors of the city. Over the years the "Tank bund" has become a favorite haunt for the evening promenaders to take a stroll, while in the morning the health fiends are seen toning their muscles in jogging suits.
As the dusk unfolds, the environs of Hussain Sagar is crowded with colorfully attired young couples and families. Dozens of vendors make brisk business selling yummy eatables. During the rainy season especially, the aroma of the freshly roasted maize corns pervades the air and beckons any passerby to halt and take a bite. Come summer time, visitors can enjoy a refreshing treat of sugarcane juice served in tall glasses or beat the heat with flavored ice creams. Throughout the year the Tank Bund presents a picture of hustle-bustle of the regular traffic and the fun loving people who come to the water front for recreation. Also for these people, the cold and pleasant breeze along the lake takes them into a reverie where they are untouched with the present until the blaring sounds of the moving vehicles jostle them to reality!
A major attraction at the Hussain Sagar is the 16 meter high, 350 tonne monolithic Buddha statue on the Rock of Gibraltar. Made of white granite, it is finely sculptured and stands majestically amidst the shimmering waters of the lake.
The lake is encompassed on one side by the beautiful "Lumbini Park", an amusement park for the young and old alike. Then there is the enchanting "Birla Mandir" hewn on a hillock nearby. Standing on the Tank Bund at night, one is awe-struck to see the glimmering row of lights outlining the lake that look like a diamond studded necklace. This is the necklace road being readied to enhance the beauty of Hussain Sagar.
Hussain Sagar has other attractions for lovers of water sports. The yatching and sailing clubs at the lake are active and the annual regatta draws a good number of sportspersons and lay people alike from all around the country. During the regatta competitions, the lake looks picturesque and colorful with the yatches sailing on the shimmering waters.
Indeed the Hussain Sagar is a haven for young and old hearts, a thrill for yatchers and above all an ideal place for relaxation and recreation!!
INDIA’S BIGGEST POULTRY SHOW

INDIA - Mumbai 26/11
It is a remarkable day for India to remember in the History. It is so horrific to see so many innocent people are shot death mercilessly. What a tragedy end of so many love ones, I can’t explain. Though I am not in the spot to witness but I appreciate the entire brave journalist who broadcast in live in different TV channels for many people to see what is exactly happening in and around the scenario.
I have a blogger friend by name Kim who is currently working in Mumbai, so I too enquire his safety and SMS to find out whether he is safe, instant reply from his side that he is safe. Oh.. Thanks be to God. In this kind of so sudden attacked we never know we are going to be safe or not, it’s all depend on luck. I can't comment or blame or to find out who is responsible for such attack as i am not the right person to do so. But i condemmed the act and wish the responsible person to be punish according to law.
By seeing all those family who lost their love ones in this India 26/11, I am emotionally touched by many persons/people story. So the only simple contribution I give to all them is just said “ A PRAYER” to Almighty God who can do everything for them/us. I salute all the NSG, Police and all those who are Martyr for India at this time. I also thanks and appreciate of all those who are directly involve in lending a helping hand to all those who are in need at that moment. May God Blessed each one of them abundantly.
The newly elected US President BARACK OBAMA makes the World History. I am emotionally touch when I knew his victory. I always watch very closely this US Presidential election from the start. It has been so long to win the battle and the world is just panic, for this is the First time that Black Candidate is nominated for such high post in the US. So, now the whole world is watching what will be the change under his administration when the situation is in the worst stage. I appreciate and Congratulate him for his great success. Though he has been attacked by his rival John Mc Cain from different angle, but he won his fight because of his unique charisma and the content of what he is what America needs at this moment. I watch many a time from the CNN & BCC coverage; I do think that everything is possible if we have a dream to success with sincere hard work and loyalty. In this new change which the world witness now will be remembered always in the world History. Let my Country INDIA also awake at this moment to make a better place to live in for our future generation. Where race & cast system is still very much exist which hamper our progress, development and unity as one NATION.
LET THERE BE PEACE AMONG US.
Now winter season sets in and it’s getting chiller than last month. The morning fresh air and the cool wind is very much mild and chill, so wake up early in the morning and starts a habit of jogging and exercise. I feel much fresher and keep me happy the whole day. But I always remember the mountainous area where I come from as I always enjoy the fresh clean air the throughout the year with moderate climate. This last October weekend, I really enjoy myself as planed before. I wake up early in the morning, gone to wet market and buy fresh sea fish, prawns, and chicken. Unlike MP, here the market open very early just like Aizawl, people are packed as it is weekend and many are shopping for their own family. Here shopping is not that difficult as almost all the people can understand English and also Hindi, so I used both the languages. But many a time people confuse of my identity as they think that I am a foreigner. India is such a large country that we have different faces and cultures that makes India very great. The food stuffs prices are very reasonable price in all items. I try to understand the local dialect but I find it very difficult right but I’ll try my best. It’s my style to speak a few words of regional language wherever I work / travel, which makes / feel better to interact with the people as communication is the best way to keep people closer.
One of the Indians Biggest festival which followed by many other Festival, one of them is Diwali. India is one of the unique in the world where many as thousands of Goddess are worship as God and whole through the year we can witness different festival and celebration. During Dusshera festival I am invited by my neighbors and my colleague and attend their puja at Narshingpur, M.P. They offer me special India cook food, it’s very delicious. As I am not Hindu these are new things for me so I find it very interesting to study more about Hindu culture and customs. I spent my Dusshera Festival at Narshingpur in Madhya Pradesh. It’s my first time I have witness this kind of Dusshera Festival being celebrated in Indian traditional way. Thousands of devotees flock together in the Temple to pray. Every house is filled with happiness, joy, sharing, wishing one another and have food together.

Its really memorable that this is the first times i witness such a wonderful and beautiful crakers flying everywhere.Old and young everyone takes part in this Festival with Family and Friends....
