Hello, Hyderabad!

  Rumi topi offers imperious look
Tehzeeb in blood bows head reverentially
Hearty hug clears the veils
Aadaab ushers all to amalgamate.

Pearls rolling through smiles
String floral patterns of mehendi on palms
In cordial welcome to our gareeb khana
Every one a royal guest in our daawat!

Azaan awakens spirit in slumber
Suprabhatam, stirs one to shrines spiritual
Choirs elevate compassionate cathedrals
Gurubani sways the pious with devotion!

Jasmines blend to bloom in dark forest plaits
Wooing and worshipping well known arts here!
Eating and chatting traditional pastime
Unhurried nature unfolds urbane culture!

Samosa, luqmi lock horns with biryani
Irani tea with bun, maskan staple food
Autowala, Audi owner adore the nectar,
Appam, Avakai, Idli, Vada-pav taste so good!

Flowing beards, sacred threads share many secrets
Caring and sharing age old legacy;
Mosque and mandir flank steeples tall
Fire Temple beckons beside the Gurudwara!

Music of glittering bangles, twittering birds,
Vanishing lakes overtake migrating Anglos and flamingos;
Yet, the elite and erudite salute the grace
In myriad tongues, tastes, structures and scriptures!

Poem Comment Being a Hyderabadi myself, loved this poem Ms. Sony Dalia. What a wonderful tribute to a really cosmopolitan, hitech and yet with--an-old -world-charm City - my City! Thanks for sharing.
