A Postcard from Hyderabad

The Land of Nizams has a lot to offer. From the the greatly influenced architecture that you see in the monuments like Char Minar or other minarets to the absolutely scrumptious biryani and kebabs. Not wanting to sound like an advertisement for Incredible India, I will still tell you that I'm in love with the city. Before this weekend, I went to Hyderabad as a child and apart from some memories of the Salarjung Museum, plucking imlis (Tamarind) off the trees in my aunt's sprawling lawns and some crazy torrential rains, I do not remember much. So this time around, I decided to play tourist again. The following pictures are from the Ladh Bazar next to the Char Minar, which is popular for its gorgeous Hyderabadi bangles and other assorted jewelery. When you enter these shops you actually might want to wear blinders to save yourself from buying the entire shop!The shiny, blinding colorful stone encrusted bangles and also the metallic ones with enamel work in beautiful colors, call out to you. You can't help but give them a home! :)

The fab 'jhumkas'

P.S: The pictures have been clicked with a phone camera and might not be of the desired quality but what the hell! :) This Travel and Living-esque series on Hyderabad will continue and I shall share with you some more postcards :)

Please do not judge my expressions. There is a myriad of mental expressions and if I wanted to increase my reader base I shouldn't have shared them here but I thought you deserve to know me better! :D
Hope you'll had a good weekend :)
