It took years of tireless effort to ensure that Hyderabad became one of India's major software hubs, and just three months to change all that. Today the land of the Nizam is better known as a city that was attacked thrice by faceless cowards in a span of just three months.
The first blast took place at the Mecca Masjid on May 18, where at least 11 people were killed. The other two blasts at the Lumbini Park and Gokul Chats store occurred on August 25, taking the lives of at least 42 people and leaving many maimed for life.
Hyderabad had been rudely woken up and it is now termed as India's terror city.
