The princely state of
Nababs & Real estate agents
who had had their fingers
dipped in the pie.
The four minarets of Charminar
hold the serried sky
against the torrents of rumors
while the eternal Musi carries
in its eddies
the sewer of monumental corruption.
With only Mozam Jahi market
offering seasons' choicest fruits&
Gazals leap in the sprawling
halls of silence in the Hydeabad tombs
where dead men walk around freely.
When the Hussain Sagar
ritualistically reflects the splendors
of the rising & setting sun.
Where the giant Buddha
contemplates the conspicuous
absence of the city's
erstwhile resplendence.

Very interesting writing.... going to have to go and look up some things so I can understand it better. Was it posted twice intentionally?

this definetly paints a picture of issues bubbling underneath the surface. something that many know but dare not say.
