Greater Hyderabad

I can’t believe it. I am staying in a city with area more than the “Sapnon ki nagri, Mumbai.” Two days back government officially announced the formation of Greater Hyderabad, the second biggest city in India. In terms of Area, it will be behind only to the New Delhi. With the merger of 12 surrounding municipalities and 8 gram panchyats, city is substantially larger both in terms of population and area as compared to the erstwhile Hyderabad. It has increased from 172 sq. km. to 725 sq. km. The municipalities included are L.B. Nagar, Gaddiannaram, Uppal Kalan, Kapra, Alwal, Qutubullapur, Malkajgiri, Kukatpally, Serlingampally, Rajendranagar, Patancheru and Ramachandrapuram. The Gram Panchyats are: Shamshabad, Mamidipalli, Satamarai, Jalapally, Mankhal, Tukkuguda, Sardarnagar and Ravarala. HUDA (Hyderabad urban development Authority) will be replaced by the HMDA (Hyderabad Metro Development Authority).
This is absolutely a right time for the expansion of MMTS in the city before its infrastructure starts crumpling like that of Bangalore and Mumbai. Providing good amenities and facilities in the newly added area will allow the population to disperse from highly herded places. Definitely Hyderabad will be in a much better situation now, even if Telangana is assorted out from Andhra Pradesh and Hyderabad is recognized as a Union Territory.

Posting after a long time

I haven’t posted from a long time. But, planning to rejuvenate my almost a numb blog. Life is back to the same square. What next?
My work is going great and having fun with it .I usually do not enjoy doing much of coding but the work items I am going to own are more of design than coding .I have already started working on them and they really give a business flavor to my work , which of course I love .
I have moved in with AC in his new home at Malaysian Township in Kukatpally.
Initially, I was missing my old house as have stayed there for past 10 months, but now all well settled in my new home. The place is becoming more and more beautiful day by day. Our flat on the 9th floor of the building is surrounded by almost nothing but rocks and open land. Awesome view and windy and pleasant nights 
My group in Microsoft is taking us for a family picnic (though, I don’t have a family yet :( ) to Panchagani this weekend. Will be back on Monday morning.
