The city of Hyderabad has witnessed many vicissitudes, but one of the most important ones was its transformation from a provincial capital into a modern metropolis during the reign of Osman Ali Khan, the last Nizam of the erstwhile Hyderabad state.
Continuing from their conversation from the previous episode, host Yunus Y. Lasania
and journalist Serish Nanisetti
(who discussed how and why Hyderabad was flooded due to heavy rains in October this year) are in conversation with Anant Maringanti
who runs the Hyderabad Urban Lab (HUL)
, a multi-disciplinary research centre. Anant, who has done some of the most detailed research projects on Hyderabad’s urbanization through HUL, speaks about the lesser known aspects of the city’s development, historically, and puts it in perspective with Hyderabad’s current state.
