Seen love for hyd yet?.. Uhh.. No!

I promised Naveen/Padhu/Hari/Shilpa/Lakshmi/Cynthia that I would never complain about how much I hate Hyderabad again. I also promised that I would make sincere effort in getting to like this place but its been 2 years and I still hate this place. Hate it.

After all those promises, I've had 2 incidents of landlord misbehavior, 2 auto attacks and horrible horrible auto drivers! I've known people back home who would step up and help if you were having a problem in a public place. In Hyderabad people just watch. People just continue to do what they are doing. They acknowledge the noise by looking and then they turn away.

I just encountered a terrifying incident this morning on my way to work. I was running late as usual and had to take an auto. In a particular signal 2 Eunuchs attacked me and demanded for money. I knew I had to get rid of them with the money so I didn't think about the 200 bucks I gave them. And after that when one of them got into the auto and touched me in …
