Walks that connect the past to the present.
This is really good! Exploring cities on foot is indeed an amazing experience!
I think we spoke on this a while ago. Exploring the place where you come from is underrated. I dont know much about the place where I grew up and would look amused at those who would ask me ‘tell me good places to see in your city’. I dont think I explored much - I loved indoors. Thankfully you don’t have a problem like I do. Why? Because you came out with such a fabulous write up about the place I still regard as the best city in India. I hope this is first of many. Thank you for writing this ila!
Fascinating as always Ila - walk more - and tell us more aweome stories like this!.
So good. Loved the fluidity of prose even while you were going into the history of a place. And I couldn't agree more - walking through a city is really the best way to explore it.
Great piece, Ila! You have given me lots of tips for my next visit to Hyderabad
This was a wonderful read, thanks for this trip to Hyderabad!
There is magic in the way you weave the words Ila. Keep writing! Your travelogues are a coping mechanism. It makes a lot of people happy :)
Awesome ! I grew up around Charminar, watching these monuments up close, Our boarding school was right next to the tombs. Back then there were hardly any humans around that area, I had no Idea about the history. Now every opportunity I get,
I delve more into hyderabad history and to my astonishment, be blown away.
