The city is basically made up of Hyderabad, Secunderabad and CYBERABAD. Hyderabad consists of the old city and has the main business districts. The BANJARA HILLS and the JUBILEE HILLS are considered to be the UPTOWN AREAs OF HYDERABAD. The SALAR JUNG MUSEUM’s IVORY ROOM and the Various GALLERIES containing porcelain, clocks, swords, daggers, spears, lances, rifles and pistols were captivating. CHOW MOHALLA PALACE’s chandeliers, carved wooden furniture, collection of porcelain sets, VINTAGE CARS and BUGGIES of the ROYAL ERA were majestic indeed. While, Hyderabad is famous for its Biryanis, the the Hyderabadi chicken was..”AWESOME”. Driving in a city like Hyderabad is quite an experience – the overall scene of TOTAL CHAOS.
Ramoji Film city is THE WORLD’s BIGGEST FILM STUDIO COMPLEX, started functioning in the year 1991 and covers a total area of 1,666 acres. This film city was built by Shri Ramoji Rao (the proprietor of the E TV - which runs 12 channels in 11 languages), who is considered to be a KING MAKER in Andhra Pradesh. The Ramoji film city consists of all imaginable and perceivable ‘sets’, that a director can use to ‘shoot’ his film. The finale of show ‘THE SPIRIT of RAMOJI’ , the boys and girls did a ballet dance on the song “Vande Mataram” from the film “Anand Math”... especially at the end when the drums accompanied by the Mridingam reached a crescendo and with 2 young boys waving the ‘TIRANGA’ and BHARAT-MATA rising (from below the stage) in all her SPLENDOR, I literally had GOOSE BUMPS all over me. This was the place where they demonstrated the ‘art’ of ‘making a film’ with a few of the nuances demonstrated, as we were made to shift from one theatre to the other (adjacent) theatre. It certainly was a ‘Novel’experience.
