Picnics were the first thing I thought of when I saw today's theme. Followed by Ganesh Chaturti and the annual numaish in Hyderabad.
When I was tiny, the IT revolution hadn't reached Hyderabad. There was so much greenery and the weather was so beautiful throughout the year, except the harsh summer months. In the weekends, my parents would take me to the zoo, Indira Park, Public Gardens, Sanjeevaiah Park, Gandipet, and if it was late in the evening, Tank Bund.
Unfortunately I am not in Hyderabad right now, so I couldn't take a new picture to post today. Instead, here is a picture I shot of Hussain Sagar from Tank Bund last year. We'd often go sit on the benches or the park across the road in the evening, eat ice creams and go home :)
And here are some pictures of super-dorky me on some of our picnics :))
