A professor at my college once famously opened his lecture by saying “Opinions are like ass***** and everybody has one." This is certainly not his original but it made an impact because this was coming from a guy who made his living - bread, butter and jam by airing his opinions. He was an art critic! I am aware that I will not be paid for this opinion venting. I will be content just knowing I will have less clutter in my head.

The Bougainvillea country
Bougainvillea is the most ubiquitous feature in Hyderabad. The old Nizam's city and currently nicknamed Cyberabad is certainly more greener than bengaLooru is. Even the road to new airport is green with new saplings planted. While the road to new bengaLooru airport is a graveyard of uprooted trees (one is hoping this will change).
Here are some pictures from the pearl city.
The flowers brighten the otherwise drab coloured walls of Golkonda Fort

This beauty was standing at the Ramoji Film city (Only thing I marvelled at besides the sheer genius of business brain behind this venture)
