A Hyderabadi tryin to find love
"Potti patana" in Hyderabad means tryin to woo a girl, our Hyderabadi heroes are so romantic at heart that even a glance from their object of attention drives them crazy. It is enough to give them sleepless nights, drive wild on the streets and most definetely throw a party to his coterie of friends. It is the favorite pastime for some while for others it is a fulltime job. A Hyderabadi would try all the tricks in the book and outside the book to get hold of the woman of his dreams. It is more of a culture shock nowadays at most of the hangout in Hyderabad. the scene would put to shame even the most overly romantic French.

ZOO - Nehru Zoological Park
One of the largest and the best zoos in Asia, the Nehru Zoological Park has nearly 1,500 species of animals, birds and reptiles. Situated in the Bahadurpura area on the way to the N.G. Ranga Agricultural University in Rajendranagar, the zoo is ahead of Afzalgunj, the Osmania General Hospital and the High Court of AP.
The popular ones among the different species are white peacocks, mynahs, chimpanzees and rhinoceros. The major attraction within the zoo, however, is the Lion Safari. A van barbed with wrought iron takes you through the gates of the safari - opening one gate at a time - into a completely different world of wild animals where lions, tigers, rhinos, wild oxen, panthers, etc. are left out freely into the wilderness of a simulated jungle.
Apart from the animals, a nocturnal zoo, the pre-historic dinosaur park, a natural history museum, parks, a mini-train and animal rides make the place ideal for a picnic. The nocturnal animals and the reptiles form a particularly interesting part of the whole.
A must visit for all provided you can walk around for 6-7 hours to cover the entire zoo which is on 300 acres of land.
The capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad is the fifth largest city in India with an ancient civilisation and culture. Attached to the city is its twin, Secunderbad, which is part of Hyderabad. The twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderbad are separated by the Husain Sagar, an artificial lake constructed during the time of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah Wali in 1562 A.D.
It is perched on the top of the Deccan Plateau, 1776ft. above sea level, and spawls over an area of 100 Sq. miles. Hyderabad, under the Nizams, was the largest princely state in India. Area wise it was as big as England and Scotland put together.
The State had its own currency, mint, railways, and postal system. Soon after India gained independence, Hyderabad State merged with the Union of India. On November 1, 1956 the map of India was redrawn into linguistic states, and Hyderabad became the capital of Andhra Pradesh. Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh, is a 400-year-old metropolis that represents a perfect blend of old world charm and modern day charisma.
The city is noted for its natural beauty, mosques and minarets, bazars and bridges, hills and lakes. The new icon of the twin cities - even as the Charminar fades, the HiTech City catches one's attention. Today, Hyderabad proudly boasts of being one of the IT capitals of India.
