Hyderabad Biriyani, Charminar and a tragic incident

Source: hyderabadadvisor.com
There is no need to introduce City Hyderabad to anyone. It is already famous for Charminar, Golkunda Fort and, of course, for Hyderabad Biriyani. I came to visit these and not a General Hospital in Hyderabad. Instead, the trip turned out to be not as I had planned it.
This is around one-and-a-half-year-old incident when one of my close friend was staying in Hyderabad and he was pestering me to come there. 

At last, I decided to catch a bus from majestic and go to Hyderabad. Bangalore to Hyderabad is nearly 600 KM and it takes one night to reach there. After a sleepless night in the bus at last I reached in Secunderabad where my friend was waiting to pick me up. 

I am travel freak. After a long sleep pressurizing them to take me on a Hyderabad tour. But before going for tour we need to finish the lunch and for lunch Hyderabad biriyani was one and the only option for me. So we went to paradise restaurant in Secunderabad. If you don’t know about Hyderabad Biriyani then try only in Paradise Food Court or Bawarchi. Good news for Bangaloreans, Paradise has opened their branch in Bangalore.

The Biriyani is really awesome. It has thin, long well cooked basmati rice, some rice grains are colored some are white. All grains are not sticking with each other. Chicken pieces are well cooked and tastiest. My friends, they ordered mutton biriyani. I took one piece of mutton from their dish and it just melted in my mouth. It was awesome in one word. This is most excellent biriyani “Hyderabad” I ever had; anyhow Aminia’s biriyani (Kolkata) is my all time favorite.
After a most heaviest meal, no one able to walk, so we decided to go to Hussain sagar and spend some time there. Hussain Sagar is spread around 6 Square KM area, which was built by Hazrat Hussain Shah Wali in 1562 in the regime of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah. There is one Buddha statue which was erected in 1992 in the middle of the lake. We spent almost 2 hours in Sanjeevaiah Park. The park was nicely maintained in that time. After spending a nice time and obviously digesting heavy meal, we headed towards Charminar. It was built in 1591 AD in the time of Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah (1580–1612), the fifth sultan of the Qutb Shahi dynasty. Other than the Charminar mosque and Charminar, the nearby market will entice you as you can get many things in very cheap rate, it may be perfume to cloths.
After roaming in different malls, it was little late in night. We all were coming back on bikes. We had 2 bikes and total 4 people. We all were enjoying the night breeze. One place, can’t remember the place name, we saw few people gathering and saw one lorry standing nearby. My friends, they got scared. They felt they might be snatchers or goons, so they accelerated speed. When we were passing that place, suddenly, we saw our both bike skidding away. I was thrown out of the bike and my friends were just going away with the bike and hit the guard wall. An oil spill all over due to a tanker breakdown had made the road slippery. Out of 4, one of my friends and me were ok. We had little scratches, but 2 of our friends were lying down and no one was able to walk, seems they were injured severely. All people standing there helped us a lot.

After we were stabilized, first think came in my mind that I need to take them to hospital. I pulled my mobile out; saw it was working fine and then searched for the nearby hospitals. I saw that the nearest hospital is 2 KM away named Osmania General Hospital. We stopped a passing city taxi and took them to the hospital. Osmania General Hospital is a Govt hospital and very old too. The duty doctor came and checked them, took their X-Ray. There had small fractures and were admitted to the hospital. After preliminary treatment, they were shifted to the general ward. In the meantime, my friend’s parents got the news and came down that night only. Thankfully after knowing the whole story, they did not scold us. Next day, we were released, all sorted out. Thank God that things were manageable. Happened.
