Hyderabad as described is truly a city of dreams. We enter this city with a lot of expectations and hopes in mind. But what actually happens is a different scene. Many things that we hope for or think are going to happen, may turn out to be completely opposite in the real picture. Here are the things that we expect when we first enter this city and what the scene actually is here.
Even before we enter this city, we will hear plenty of stories about this city’s terrifying traffic jams. Traffic jam aa kada ani light teeskuntam first lo but once you experience being stuck for two to three hours in Begumpet road then you’ll know THE BIG PICTURE.
Hyderabad ante Biryani and Biryani ante Hyderabad. Ekkada thinna biryani amrutham la untadi anukuntam. Kani oka two or three places lo try chesaka telustadi asalu vishayam manalni Bawarchi ani peru cheppi enta mosam chesara ani.
3. A Peaceful Walk On Tankbund Road:
Hyderabad lo koncham peaceful ga kanipinchedi Tank Bund and Necklace road eh. Kani akkada situation antha reverse lo untadhi. The stinking Hussain Sagar and honking traffic lo peace of mind anedhi water tank lo chepalu pattadam lantidhe. Ante dhorakadam chala kashtam ani cheptunnam anamata. :p
4. Hindi Predominance:
Hyderabad lo andaru Hindi aa matladataru ani kangaru padipoyi 30 rojullo Hindi book konukkuna vallandhariki oka bad news. Ikkada Hindi entha baga matladataro telugu kuda anthe chakkaga matladataru. In fact it has more of Telugu speaking folks comparatively.
5. Chilling With Friends All The Time:
With the picture we have in mind which is honestly derived from our Tollywood movies, we expect to make lots of friends and chill out everyday. But reality lo ee traffic and pollution valla bayataki ravali antene bhayamestundhi. Appude dhevata la manaki Netflix kanipistundhi. Anthe sorted for the weekend.
6. Checking Out Fancy Restaurants:
Before entering this city, we all must’ve checked out the fancy restaurants and posh pubs. We plan to tick off one a weekend, but what we miss out is the hole they leave in our pockets. Ee ardhika mandhyam lo padi manam vati perlu kuda marchipotam aakhariki.
7. Posh Poris:
Mariii Tamannah, Samantha antha kakapoyina vallalo sagam unna vallani ina expect chestam amanam. But at least nethranandham ki kuda evaru undaru reality lo.
8. Freedom Of Living Alone:
Most of the people who move here from their hometowns come here seeking privacy from their families. But after coming here thelustundhi asalu katha. With rents reaching peaks, we end up staying in a sharing flat or PG. Ikkada privacy maate undadhu.
9. Enjoying Rains:
How much ever you love rains, once you enter this city you will change your liking for it. Vaana antene bhayam vese paristithi okati vastundhi ikkadiki vachaka. It honestly becomes a nightmare with filled up manholes and traffic jams. Inka vaana lo coffee lanti oohalu anni ikkada manholes lo muniginatte.
You think once you live on your own there’s a lot of time for yourself and can’t be bothered with your family. But after picture is different, you yearn to visit your home and forget all your responsibilities for once. Mana hometown appudu kanipinchinantha beautiful ga inkeppudu kanpinchadu. And if someone says they are from the same place, anthe inka chinnappati friend ni kalsinantha aanandamga untundi.
But, truly enta kadanukunna you can’t help but fall in love with this place. It binds people and though you’re an outsider once you blend in, you will become a true Hyderabadi at heart. This charming city makes you wish at least once that you lived here all your life.
