Hyderabad, India - My Hometown

Splendid and magnificent is daytime
 
In the heart of the bustling Charminar*
 
Lively and congenial are the people
 
Bargains become rhythms of the bazaar
 
The aroma of rice and curry thrives
 
And blends with luscious chaat* from the roadside
 
A schoolgirl approaches her bus and strives
 
To watch keenly as society strides 
 
And as the temple bells ring at high pitch
 
The deities are adorned, the souls stitched.
 
 
 
* Charminar – The most famous tourist attraction and landmark of Hyderabad and the heart of all 
 
bustling activities such as shopping centers and bazaars. The monument reflects a blending of 
 
both Indian modernity and tradition.
 
*Chaat – a variety of sweet and savory snacks served primarily at roadside stalls throughout 
 
India
