Unperturbed and comforting are two words that sum up my stay in Hyderabad and Secunderabad: twin cities, but distinct in their own way. The former bustling with commotion while the later as tranquil as you can imagine.
It was totally unexpected and uncalled for me to end up there. But as always the best things in your lives happens when you least expect it. Though I had conflicting notions about going there in the first place, I still went as I had no choice but to go there. You got to do what you got to do.
In this new series of blogs I will discuss some of the memorable and definitely hilarious incidents that happened to me while I was here in Hyderabad.
And this is the place where I began:
This was my work place for close to 8 month located right in the heart of Gachibowli, a booming high tech village on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Well, at first glance it resembled, a high tech ET( extra terrestrial) research facility. The domes are shaped like UFOs to attract prospective aliens ;), then you have a maze like structure where researchers could hide and study their movements and could trap them.
This building was designed by I.K.Gujral’s (India’s former PM) brother and it’s a replica of the Golconda Fort. Its eerie settings reminded me of the Stonehenge and the variety of mountainous stones, further justified this assumption to some extent. The sprawling campus of around 100 acres is laden with trees and wild plantations, providing a beautiful surrounding. At the same time, it was a dream opportunity for employees to have a decent1 km long walk after the sumptuous lunch and play hooky with their managers.
