Abhishek’s vacations start late May, and go on till mid-July. So, our summer travelling is appropriately staggered. We started this year with a short trip to Hyderabad, a city I have been to many times.
Hyderabad was where I had closed the deal with Sify in the Satyam campus 13 years ago. I used to visit Hyderabad often for some of the Sify board meetings which used to alternate between Chennai and Hyderabad. Later, I used to visit Hyderabad to meet some of the NGOs which were doing work in rural development. I have also spoken a couple times at ISB.
And so it was, a few days ago, right in the middle of a hot summer’s day, that we landed in Hyderabad and found ourselves on the impressive 11.6 kms PV Narasimha Rao Expressway (a 4-lane elevated road) driving to the city.
