Telangana was carved out of the former Andhra Pradesh with Hyderabad as its capital. The name ‘Telangana’ is derived from the word ‘Trilinga’ meaning the place of three lingas as according to legends Lord Shiva’s lingams are found on three mountains Srisailam, Kaleshwaram and Draksharama which form the boundaries of Telangana. It is mentioned in the Mahabharata as Telingadesha and it is said that the people of this land sided with the Pandavas in their battle against the Kauravas in the Kurukshetra War. It is also mentioned in the Aitreyabrahmana, Ramayana and Puranas. The Art, Culture and Traditions of Telangana is a fusion of the Telugu and Persian culture dating back to the Nizams and Mughals. Hence, there is an influence of Hinduism and Islam. Since Buddhism was the dominant religion upto the 6th century it was also the home of Mahayana Buddhism. This can be observed in the monuments of Nagarjunakonda and the World University at the Sri Parvata presided over by Acharya Nagarjuna. In the 12thcentury the Kakatiyas and the Chalukyas revived Hinduism and Krishnadeva Raya of the Vijayanagar Empire restructured old temples and built new ones.

Getting there was quite a task though. “The traffic was an issue... also pollution,” said the 55-year-old said of his one-hour-10-minute ride — he started at 9.40 am and reached the Lal Bahadur Stadium at 10.50 am. Mr Babu also spoke of the larger good. “In many countries, the most commonly used vehicle for road transport is a utility bicycle. Certain countries rely heavily on bicycles and their culture has developed around the bicycle as a primary form of transport. In Europe, Denmark and the Netherlands have the most bicycles per capita and most often use bicycles for everyday transport which creates a huge impact on the society and nature. The world is rediscovering the wheels without fuel as using bicycles for transport in place of fuel based vehicles has vast benefits in terms of health and environment. The bicycle is no longer only for the poor who cannot afford to have an automobile. It is a must possession for everyone in a futuristic 21st century and will go a long way for a pollution free and environment friendly society for us and the coming generation,” he said.
