Happy New Year to everyone – I wish you a year (and beyond) that is full of happiness, peace, health, joy, prosperity and may all your dreams come true.<
I had the happiest week of the year, visiting my spiritual hometown. Why spiritual? Because it is my soul’s home. Though I am from Tanjore in Tamil Nadu (a heritage city), I consider the twin cities of Secunderabad and Hyderabad my hometown because I spent a major part of my life there – the part that really mattered to me – high school, college, and a big chunk of my work life.
Vidur and I were there for three days and had a wonderful time meeting friends and seeing a bit of the city. This Sunday In My City, the photos are from our trip to Secunderabad and Hyderabad. Of course I clicked hundreds. But here are a handful. (Click to see original size; will open in new window.)
This beautiful statue is just outside the church on my old school campus
|Painting on the wall opposite my old school – eliminate Child Labor|
|And what would any post of mine that involved photos be without one of a temple, eh? This is the snake goddess or Naga Devi temple opposite the Clock Tower in Secunderabad|
|Lovely tableau outside a mall celebrating Christmas and New Year|
|The Great Golkonda Fort. Roughly 400 steps to climb to reach the top. I did not give in to the urge. The place is massive and full of interesting history|
|Another view of the Golkonda Fort – I couldn’t get enough of the place, even though I’ve visited at least a hundred times!|
|At the entrance to the Buddhist shrine. Beautiful place.
