PATANG Baazi Yamani Bin Zubair

Kati Patang, Nope I’m not talking about Asha parekh, though the metaphor was used for the character in the hit film “kati patang”. In January myriad colors dotted the skies as Hyderabad came alive with the Sankranti, the harvest festival is known for kite flying or “Patangbazi”. Purana sheher ya naya sheher, every rooftop was occupied with a kite flying enthusiast. Young or old, men and women filled grounds to the brim and every imaginable rooftop with the charak in their hands and kites in the air. Three days of holidays; favorable winds and clear skies. It’s something kite fanatics with flagrant excitement couldn’t have asked for more.

Off all venues to fly kites, Begum Bazaar is a big draw. All through the day, hectic preparations were here with floodlights being erected and music systems set up on rooftops. The show time was at kites at night. The sky was beaming with floodlights and extreme kite flying was witnessed.

“Flying kites at night is a decades old tradition at Begum Bazaar. Large number of families turns up on roof tops to indulge in some serious kite flying. It‘s unique because kite flying is done at night and the sky is lit up with flood lights,” says Rafay syed, an ardent enthusiast at AghaPura.

So kids who run out of kites play, Landoori, it’s basically a stone, piece of wood tied to a string( manja) and a contest of “whose manja is stronger” is done by entagling two landoori’s at a time. The kids usually warm up with the tough talk that goes,“aate ki landoori, jaate ki zataak”, Which means “if you come for a landoori competition with me, your landoori will get cut off in a jiffy”.

So what made 2014 a year of unimaginable kite flying extravaganza? New kite designs? New type of string? New kite markets? Large groups of people shopped at the most sought out make shift kite markets in Gulzar Houz, Hussaini Alam, Dhoolpet and Begum Bazaar. With changing times tastes are also changing. People migrated from age old “manja” made with broken glass paste to “tangoos” which is Chinese made. Apart from the local manja shops there was a demand seen in manja bought from gujrat and Kolkota. Every year new designs come in the market. This year the markets were flooded with PVC kites(plastic). You name it, it was there. Batman, superman, Butterflies, dragons, kites with pictures of salman, shah rukh, Katrina and also sunny leone were in demand. Like always everyone this season felt like children, who want to fly in the sky, just like a kite!

Baigan Ka Pyaar in Sanjeeviah Park Yamani Bin Zubair

Hyderabad is sucker for hype and hyderabadi’s love to indulge in every bit of it. Though this is not a stereotype, being one myself I’m drawn to it as a moth to a flame. If your thinking “Baigan ke baatan hai woh” then you probably are trying to adjust with our ways. Agree to disagree? Well don’t, because that perception might change acutely in a short while. Life is currently passing through a month of great expectations. They say, this month “love in the air”; I’m not sure about love though, but amidst the madness business sure is blooms. Let me explain how our lives are built by a manufactured holiday called “valentine’s day; you don’t get the correlation do you? Well most of us get caught in that web of mania on “V-day”.

It’s like a questionnaire we know the answers to, yet the trepidation is rising. How does one celebrate it? Do u celebrate or not? Where should I go? What should I wear? Will she say yes? Universal ka burger khilaon ya famous ki icecream ? Sanjeeviah Park leke jaaon ya IMAX ? Coffee day leke jaaon ya eat street? Whatever the answer, come 14th, all we see is red everywhere, we wear red, give red, get red! I mean C’mon people. Technically Valentine’s Day is a sham created by greeting card companies. Who is valentine? Where does ‘valentine’ come from? I’m glad you asked! Claudius II, a Roman emperor, had two men killed on various occasions, whose name happened to be ‘you know who’. Why? One of the Valentines was a priest who was banned by Claudius II from performing marriages. Claudius felt single men made better soldiers than married me. So it was off with Valentines head a lot of stories account to different versions. Another version also claims that Valentine, himself, was imprisoned and fell in love with imprisoner’s daughter. Apparently he wrote her ‘the first ever valentine’, but sources are very unclear about this. If you ask me sounds like a baigan ki kahani ! Oh and that Valentine’s Day is a business? Apparently in 2013 this city spent thousands of rupees on this damn holiday. Coffee was served in a red colored mug and costed 100 bucks more than regular. Everything gets overpriced. We have kids making some dough also organizing “valentines day” parties. With 2000 stags filled on a dance floor with less than five couples in it. For many, the best gift is a diamond ring, so if you show up with a dozen flowers, which will eventually die, your relationship has a chance of dying as well. Plus “I love you” doesn’t really cut it. So unless u spend some good dough on this particular day the marketing gurus make u feel obsolete. Greedy bastards! Women choose to get competitive on this day. They usually are except that the designer handbag your girl’s best friend will get is going to make your teddy bear and roses look pretty crappy.

We have all the love sick looneys with the red rose in their hands, looking for every chance to give it to the first girl in sight. Talk about love at first sight. From multiplexes to shopping malls, we have adolescent kids to flabby uncles leering, with a red rose in their hands. The couples tend to show that this is the only day PDA is the way to go. Not only that they don’t leave any place to create a scene. Parks, Pubs, restaurants, Cinema halls. Jeez get a room. The there is always someone who does it because someone else did it. It somehow offends the religious beliefs. Tell me about it. We have every community looking down upon us for acting love sick. We have mobs going nuts and attacking couples, even if they are married. It’s such a shame that something this meaningless and materialistic gets on everybody’s nerve. So why celebrate it? Hey if shadaab decides to launch “shadaab biryani day”, should our loved ones be forced to secure us a hefty family pack with extra leg piece. No! We do it because someone else is doing it or there’s the peer pressure due to which we decide to go zombie on this holiday. Act like rest of the 364 days doesn’t matter. If you don’t express your love on Valentine’s Day your love isn’t true. Come-on Raj Aryan don’t mock my sensibility! Honestly It sure boosts the economy buy last I checked, money doesn’t buy love.

Meri Baat Sunlo Hyder Abadi

When you end up spending at least 5 minutes with a hyderabadi and you would realize that “humlogan jaldi free hojate”. Esp when we’re trying to save the day or help someone in crisis. When a friend or someone from family is down we usually have mote mote nasihataan,”advice” in stock, and there is more where that came from. It’s just because we’re pretty sure that when someone said it to us at some point in time, or probably it was a dialogue right out of the bhaijaan’s movie. But strangely, when we’re on the receiving end of the same advice, it seems just as clear as the windows error message. But you know….kisku kya bole jaisa hai????

HyderabadiBAATAN

41


“LIGHT LEO PASHA”: Well let me introduce u to the word which no hyderabadi takes seriously. “LIGHT”. Arrey Tube nai yaaro! It literally means take everything for granted. However this advice comes handy to us when we’re basically, not in the mood to do something. My favorite example: Exams, just when you’re sitting down to study and your best bud says,”arrey abhi ek hafte ki chutti hai mama, chal dhoom 3 release hori, prasads jaake aainge, aaj light le, kal main ich padhatu”. Suprisingly, when u sit down to study its 4am and your paper is at 10 AM. You’re on a diet, your strict, you work out regularly. But you’ll always have someone say,” ek baar khaye tho kuch nai hota, Light leo itta bhi dil pe nai lena diet ku, chalo ice and spice ka shawarma khilatu”.

BOTTOM LINE: Light zyada bhi nai lena.

42

HyderabadiBAATAN


“SAUDI KAIKU JAARE YARRO”: Most of hyderabadi income is generated via Dollaraan. But Saudi riyal comes tax free, that’s why we have a huge population racking it. But one advice any hyderabadi gives when you tell them,”Main civil engineer hoon, Damman jaana sonchru”, to a Saudi return and he drops the advice bomb right away,” kaiku aate, kuch bhi nai hai Saudi main ab baaki, truckaan bhar bhar ke india bhejdere logon ku wapas”.

BOTTOM LINE:

Saudi jaao, Dubai Jaao, US jaao, UK jaao, jaisa sab jaarey aaj kal waisa jaao….Bagar bole!

HyderabadiBAATAN

43


“Spiderman nai hai tum, Tumare se nai hotaaaaaaaaaaa”: “Prince ka talawa gosht, Rumaan ki biryani, shadaab ke paaya,””SIX pack hona, tumahre se nai hota”. We always have one guy whose got it all figured out. Trouble is every guy in Hyderabad thinks similarly, which every “CITY” your’re from, you know who you are.

BOTTOM LINE:SAB kaam karna !

44

HyderabadiBAATAN

SE HOTA! Bas LIGHT lena aur


“ECE karo Bohot scope hai ! ”: The reasons every hyderabadi got into this field is because there is scope. Till this day colleges that lie not less than 30Kms from the city have kids getting into ECE. With less or no information regarding the field. Once they have a degree in their hands all kids end up saying,”ECE kaiku kara ki main”,”Sab karna ECE nai Karna”.

BOTTOM LINE: 3 Idiots nai dekhe, jisme interest hai

woh karo.

HyderabadiBAATAN

45


46

HyderabadiBAATAN


“Hum Pehleich bole thay! ”: The one is Quintessential. The most over used and as we speak someone is actually listening to this. Studies, Health, Job, marriage…you name it, if it doesn’t work out your way; you’re probably going to end up listening to this. Even from people – Jo pehle nai bole lekin ab chance marrey.

BOTTOM LINE:

Tumku maloom ich hunga, ab sab batana kya ? Own it!

Cover Story

Numaish Bolte!!! Hyder Abadi

“Tu hai pagal tu hai joker tu hai dil bar jaani…. sab se pyaara mera yaara raja hindustaani ! “ the loud speakers blared. The train tooted and made its way through a labyrinth of well lit shops, the bubbles floating around in air, people screamed on top of their voices, hands in the air, a bright giant wheel visible in the sky, popcorn popping, lost kids being reported, pastel hues of hand woven cloth at display, women bustling through lines to try some colorful bangles. Seems much like chaos??? to me!

Sounds like numaish

“Numaish”, Urdu for exhibition and the Numaish in Hyderabad is precisely just that; An open air exhibition that is awaited eagerly throughout the year which displays all the ingenious products and goods that the city of Hyderabad produces. It’s been a tradition of sorts for hyderabadi’s to attend the “Numaish” as we call it since its inception in 1938, the reign of the last Nizam of Hyderabad – Mir Osman Ali khan. The exhibits feature handicrafts and dry fruits of Jammu and Kashmir, handmade garments from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh all the way to West Bengal. Dazzling displays of splendor are the handicraft items from all over India. It’s been recognized as the even neighboring countries like Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Bangladesh have also been participating in the famous event. The fair gets around 2.5 Million people a year with 2600 stalls setup. That makes Numaish a massive event, I feel calling it that is an understatement. HyderabadiBAATAN

Also known as “The All India Industrial Exhibition” and is Located at Nampally, the center of the Hyderabad. The Numaish begins with the break of New Year and is functional till the fifteenth of February. Parking becomes an issue and the roads are chocked with vehicles at peak hrs. It’s open from as early as 3 PM to 10 PM. It has an entrée fee of rupees 20 per head.


The most interesting part of the shopping experience you can have at the numaish is the bargaining. Entertainment is other magnetic force of the event. The attractions include a mini-train, “Maut ka kuaa” (death well), ferris wheel, motorcycle stunts in stunt globes, and many others. Food courts with lavish spreads entice the taste buds of all the shoppers and stalls serving delicacies from Hyderabad and other places are also available for those who want to go on a food trip. Things to look out for is the quintessential haleem from yours truly pista house, lip smacking snacks like mirchi bhajji, samosa and pakodas from the “New agra Daimond”, the sugarcane juice and ice cream stalls and also the patthar gosht from the house of Bade Miyan.

BACHPAN KE KHEL.

Yamani Bin Zubair

As we step into 2014 I realize that the generation z has made its way deep into our lives. Gen z began in early 2000’s and they’ve grown into lazy couch potatoes who don’t really have fun like we had as kids. Kids these days are born with Wii and PS3’s at their disposal and doting parents splurging on the latest android gadgets for them. It’s been a while since I’ve seen kids going crazy playing out on the streets like we used to do back in the day. Let’s look at what these kids have been missing out in their lives.

Lingodcha (Seven Stones) : “Ammmmmi“, when was the last time u that shouted on top of your voice, I remember when I used to get hit by a ball is when I blurted it out the most. “Lingodcha” also called as seven stones was a game played by most kids who didn’t have a bat but alot of stones. I remember humid sunday afternoons playing lingodcha with my friends, hitting my friends hard and enemies harder. It was great, noisy and fun, esp when there were rounds where the matches were “guys vs girls”.

RULES: 1.Make two teams. 2.Stack up the stones in descending order from the ground up. 3.Every stones size should be smaller than the other. 4.The toss winning team has to knock the stack down and restack them. 5.The other team has to hit the players with the ball till all of them are out.

Chuppa Chuppi : Yes I know you’ve watched “the conjuring” and yeah maybe now you find the “three claps” is way cooler, but chuppa chuppi or hide and seek was once very popular and less complicated. All you needed was to hide and one of the team members to seek you. The twist is that once one of the team members is caught he/she joins and catches the other team members who are hiding.

RULES: 1.Chose the seeker from the hiders. 2.The seeker blindfolds him/she and counts till tell and everybody hides. 3.The seeker now seeks everyone. 4.Once one of the team members is caught they both seek the other this continues as a chain till everyone is found.


Lattu ( Spinning top): Before kids were introduced to beyblades kids from my childhood were amused by lattu also called as spinning top. This is a simple game involves in spinning a turnip shaped wodden toy with groves on the side and pointy nails dug at the top and bottom. A cotton rope is wrapped around the bottom alongside the groves to make the lattu spin.

RULES: 1.Wrap the cotton rope alongside the groves of the lattu till once a bit is left in your hand. 2.Hold the lattu between your index finger and thumb and pullthe rope with one single jerk. 3.Watch the lattu spin.


Gilli Dandul: Also called as gilli danda, was one of the most played sport next to cricket and is still played most villages of india. A popular game in India played with two sticks, one smaller and the other one bigger. The danda or dandul is usually handmade by the player and is owned with prestige. The gilli is a small piece of wooden stick that tapered on either side. No standard defines the length of the danda and is usually decided by its maker, the gilli however us 3 to 6 inch of length.

RULES:

1.Make a small hole the size of the gilli and a draw a line infront of it, this would be the crease. 2.Place the gilli in the hole, half end of the gilli in the hole rest of it is place out. 3. Hit the gilli on the tapered end bouncing it off the ground. 4.While in mid air touch the gilli with the danda multiple number of times before striking it. 5.The farthest it goes from the crease, the gilli is used to measure the distance inorder to mark the points. 6.Once u hit the gilli,�baazu hato, gilli jaari�.

Typewriter: Chapter one Ye kahani hai 1940s ki, TAQUI MURAAD FAKHRI jisse log typewriter ke naam se jaante the. Taqui,umr 24saal,mba and masters in data entry, ausad gorapan,pashta khad,clean shaved chehre mein khudko gentlemen manne wala taqui hyderabad jaise khoobsurat shehr mein tanha bhi tha lekin hamesha muskurata rehta tha,khushmizaaj hua karta tha. Tasveeron aur filmo mein bhale hi aap hyderabad ko black and white mein dekhte hon, haqeeqat mein ye shehar aja-eb khane se kam nahi hua karta tha indino. Taqui ki waalidah taqui ke bachpan mein guzargayi thi aur taqui ke walid ka inteqal police action ke ek hadse mein hua tha. Akhbaaron aur radio ke is daur mein taqui hyderabad ke 5 typewriters mein ek tha, mahina 500rs kamana taqui ke liye badi khushi ki baat hua karti thi. Phir bhi taqui khudki tanhayi seduur rehne ke liye subah daakiya (postman) ka kaam karta aur shaam tak daftar mein raha karta tha.. Cycle ki ghanti bajate hue gali mohollon se guzarna, july ke mahine ki is khuubsurat barish mein taqui ka long coat,hat,typewriter ki safaii, aur typewriter ke samne rakha hua apna TAQUI M.FAKHRI naam ko pochna, aur typing machine se barabar mein rakhi hui sulemani chai usse apni khush haal zindagi ka ehsaas dilati thi. Ek baat hua karti thi jahan kuch lamho ke liye taqui mayoos hojaya karta tha. Aaj bhi ek aisi baat hui thi jisse taqui kuch ghanto tak mayuss raha. “kisi client ne jab isper chilla kar kaha ke aap jawaab kyun nahi derahe janab� tab taqui ke barabar baitha biradar sathi ne uss client ko bataya ke taqui awaaz se mazoor hai. Taqui bol nahi sakta. Apne walid ke faut ke baad taqui ka musalsal rona taqui ko apni awaaz se mehroom kargaya tha. Lekin taqui sunn sakta tha, barish ki awaazein,hawaon ka shor,bijli ki garaj,chudiyon ka chehekna,radio per khabrein,typewriter ki tiktik,saari awaazein.

Mayus mizaaj liye apne ek client ke paas jaane ke liye nikalpada tha taqui, apni cycle ke back carrier per cover mein lipta hua apna typewriter leker nikal raha tha ke taqui ko uske malik ne awaaz deker bulaya aur ek lifafa taqui ko dete hue kaha ke,ye tumhara bonus hai tumhari mehnat aur lagan ka sila. Taqui ke chehre per khushi thi, yun toh taqui ka koi nahi tha lekin taqui jahan rehta tha uss mohalle mein kuch ghareeb bache rehte the. Jo hamesha ek halwayi se maarkhate the. Is baar jab taqui apne mohalle se guzarraha tha toh usne dekha ke unhi ghareeb bachon mein se ek bacha halwayi ke yahan se kuch mithayi chura raha tha ke uska hath ek tooti kaanch se takra ker zakhmi hogaya. Ye dekh taqui apni cycle stand per lagaker dauda hua aya toh dekha ke halwayii hass raha tha is baat se ke wo bacha zakhmi hogaya. Ye dekh taqui ne wo mithayi ki thaali uthayi aur apna lifafa uss halwayi ke ki dukaan per phenk un bachon ke paas jaapohchuncha.. Halwayii chilla raha tha ke “kab tak in bachon ka sahara banoge taqui,kal tum inhe na khilao toh ye chori karke hi apna pet bharenge� taqui ne usse koi jawaab na diya, un bachon ke chehro ko khush dekhker taqui khudko bhi khush mehsoos karta. Bachon ke bachkani khisse sunker unke sath bachon ki tarha hasta, Ye bhi ittefaq tha jab taqui un bachon se nikalker apne client ke yahan pohcha toh dekha ke kuch kaagazaat zameen per bikhre pade hain, aur ek muslim ladki un kaagazo ko ikhatta karrahi hai. Ye dekh taqui ne us khatoon ki madad karni chahi lekin us ladki ne kagazaat ko chu ne se mana kiya aur khud taqui us ladki ko dekhta raha, barish ki thandi hawa se udta hua uss ladki ka naqaab taqui ki tawajju ko apni taraf kheench raha tha, kuch lamhe the kuch ghadiyan jaise ruksi gayi thi, saare jahan ke ehsaas jaise taqui ke seene mein panaah lene lage the jab wo haseen chehre per bheegi hui nigaahein kuch bebas si nazar aarahi thi. Kuch der mein us ladki ne kagazaat ikhatta kiye aur saare kagazaat ek kachre ke dibbe mein phenkdiye. Taqui kuch der hairaan sa raha phir client ne awaaz di toh ja pohcha,

Darasal ye client ek publisher tha, nizaami traders and publishers ke naam se chalne wali ek badi company jo novels aur urdu kitaabon ke liye saare hindustaan mein shohrat-aftab thi. Kuch der is client ka kaam karne ke baad taqui jab jane laga toh wo is kachre ke dibbe se wo saare kagazaat ikhatta kiye aur unhe apne baste mein rakh chalpada.. Saari raat taqui un kagazon mein lipte ek fasane ko padta aur un ladki ka tasavvur karta, TARANNUM IFTEQUAR naam tha us ladki ka jo taqui ko is kahani ke sar-warq se mila tha. Raat ke takreeban 3bajgaye the, taqui ko neend nahi ayi. Wo apna typewriter liye baithgaya is kahani ke kuch zer zabar aur kahani ke kuch hisson ko durust karne, aur taqui ne apne hisaab se is kahani ka naam bhi badaldiya. Subah 9baje taqui apne sath wo nayi kahani leker nizaami’s ke yahan pohcha, aur usne ek letter mein ye iltija ki ke ye kahani ko poori tarha se padhe toh wo aajki fees nahi lega. Ye deker wo wahan se chalpada apne daftar ki taraf. Din bhar taqui ek bechaini ke libaaz mein khudko bandha hua mehsoos karta raha. Har jagah her waqt wo tarannum ke chehre ko dekhta, wo surq aankho aur narm chehre ko dekhta aur kahin khojata. Jaise taise din dhala aur shaam hui. Taqui badi hi besabri se us client ke yahan pohcha. Taqui ko dekhker nizaami’s ke editor ne ek muskurahat bhara salaam diya. Aur kaha ke “jazbaat kaafi rakhte ho, bolna jaante toh aaj bade shayar kehlate” taqui ye sunker muskuraya aur apne baste se ek lifafa nikaalker unhe dediya. Usme kuch yun likha tha “ye kahani meri nahi hai, lekin main chahta hun ke aap iss kahani ko publish karen,guzarish hai aapse, ye kahani usi ladki ki hai jo kal raat yahan se roti hui jarahi thi, maine kuch nuqton ko durust kiya hai bas baaqi saara fasana us mohtrama ka hai, main chahta hun ke musannif ka naam bhi us khatoon ka hi aye, mujhe koi hissa nahi chahiye kisi bhi shohrat mein na daulat mein, aur naa hi mera naam tarannum tak jaye ke maine ye sab kuch kiya hai, aap kehdena ke aapne kahani ko durust kiya hai.”

Ye padhker editor ne hasna shuru kardiya, aur kaha ke aap ye guzarish na bhi karte toh ye novel main publish karne hi wala tha, kaafi dino baad kuch jazbaati kahani mili hai, raha sawaal aapke naam ka toh main wohi karunga jaisa aap chahte hain. Ek hafte baad Editor sahab ne ek choti si taqreeb rakhi thi, aur unho ne taqui dawat e khusoosi se nawaza tha, taqui ne munasib tayariyo ke sath , kaliyon wala kurta,churidarpajama, aur surq rumi topi lagaye apne ghar se nikalpada, ghodagaadi ka kiraya taqui ke hisaab se parey thi aur hathgadi ki sawari taqui ko pasand nahi thi. Toh taqui ne apni chitari ke sahare paidal hi editor ke yahan pohochna thik samjha aur ane ghar se nikalpada. Apni hi dhunnn mein taqui raaste bhar apni atarr ki khushbu ko mehsoos karta aur kuch khayalat mein khoya hua kuch der baad editor sahab ke yahan jaa pohcha toh hairat mein rehgaya ye dekhker ke tarannum ki kahani ka aaj publishing day hai. Aur tarannum bhi is taqreeb mein shamil hai. Taqui dawat ke darr per sehem sa rehgaya tha, ek ghabrahat ek gumsum sa mizaaj liye. Barish ki boondein chatri per zor o shor machane lagi. Dhadkane apni taqui apne aap mein mehsoos karne laga. Ek sard jaise saara alam hogaya tha taqui ke liye. Lab larazne lage aur kanpkapi si mehsoos hone lagi thi.

We’ll introduce you to dishes apart from Hyderabadi Biryani( which ofcourse put us up on the map). Every Issue, you’ll find a mix of ideas, tips Opinions, & recipes. For everybody. Hyderabadi cuisine also called as “hyderabadi gizaayat” is an amalgamation of Mughlai, Arabic & Turkish accompanied by the influences of the native Telugu and Marathwada cuisines. It has been tantalizing taste buds and pampering palates for decades. One of the dishes that have been smoking up the hyderabadi kitchens and being the side kick for almost any dish on main course is Tala hua Gosht or Sautéed meat. Braised Meat prepared with simple seasonings, aromatic garnish and lemon juice.
