    I like these a bit better than the ones in part II, for most part. I’ll tell you why that is, but in due time. Just as soon as I can put it in words properly.
    Meanwhile, have you been to Falaknuma? Or Salarjung? You should try those too, if opulence is what you’re trying to capture… 🙂

    Just went here today.. liked the vintage cars and other misc artefacts of Nizam’s lifestyle..They did have a rocking time.

    This place is great when they organize some concerts etc..It is very well lit up.
