Secular Traditions of Hyderabad మే 25, 2007Posted by Telangana Utsav in Articles, English.
Guardians of Hyderabadi heritage
A Dargah in Nampally retains its majesty and spirituality, thanks to its inheritors
Today, heritage of the historic Hyderabad is being showcased in a series of monuments and silent structures that are the only remains of a past glory. But how many of us are aware of a heritage and culture that has survived through the centuries and still lives on in the heart of this hetero-cultured city?
That communal harmony reigned supreme over this part of Deccan plateau long before the principles of tolerance were preached, is something of a historical fact. And the land owed this to the mighty Qutub Shahi rulers whose lives and times were testimonials to secularism. Sufi – a beautiful blend of the Hindu and Islam tenets of spiritualism sans rigidity of either.

Artists of Telangana మే 8, 2007Posted by Telangana Utsav in Art, English, Essays, heritage, Identity, landuse, Personalities, Telangana, Telangana People.

Rooted in the rural milieu of this region of Andhra Pradesh, the works of artists Laxma Goud, T. Vaikuntam, Bairu Raghuram and Laxman Aelay evoke the indigenous imagery.
Knocking: Laxman Aelay
That artists are conditioned by the environment is a well-known and recognised fact. The rural landscape has not escaped the attention of the above-mentioned four artists – it in fact dominates their canvas. From men, women, goat, huts to vegetation – the images reflect a stark reality – an idyll one on which is slowly being threatened by urbanisation. The works basically recreate the rural landscape in a way as if it is frozen in time. The colour, innocence, simplicity, flora and fauna are indicative of the bucolic naivety. And the imagery is stylised – peculiar to each artist. (మరింత…)
Greater Hyderabad Kills Musi & livelihoods మే 3, 2007Posted by M Bharath Bhushan in Articles, English, In News.
Greater Hyderabad tag for city spells greater troubles for the already dirty and dying Musi, says Roli Srivastava
On a dry and hot afternoon in a leafy corner of Osmania University, professor K Muthyam Reddy slips into a nostalgic mood reliving his childhood in Pedagudem village where the walk home from school was the most awaited moment of the day, when he would jump into the river with his friends, play in the sparkling water to beat the heat, fish and even drink that river water. The river was Musi and today, he says, he cannot imagine dipping his finger into it.
