CC: City Charm-Numaish

It’s that time of the year again, when the routine is pre-planned, intehai ghair ma’amuly baat, calendars are checked religiously, off days are marked with red markers,calls are made,decisions done,plans pokhta-fied, rides arranged, budget’s modified with “teeny-meeny” changes. Men folk forced to stay at home, ghair-ma’amuly again, as women shall grace the Nampally ground with their presence.
Ab tak toh samjh gaye hunge na? Yes it’s NUMAISH time.

You can hear the continuous honking by besabrey autowalay and too enthusiastic traffic police officer’s blaring instructions through the speakers from Far far away. Ab utti bhi door nakko jao .:P Roads are jam Packed but don’t lose your patience.
Last time I did a write up. So this year I thought of an idea and consulted dear friend of mine, Falak, about doing it differently this time. And we decided to give you guys
*Drumrolls*

A VIRTUAL TOUR!!

So Everyone who’s never been to Numaish, my fellow bloggers from different parts of the desh and bloggers from padosi mulk, who want to know why do Hyderabadis go gaga over the Numaish and what its actually about, come walk with us. And our dear NRHs ladies(Non-Resident Hyderabadis- ladies because I doubt men loved going here) how can we forget you,Aisa kaisaa hosaktaa? Matlab Kaisaaaaa??
We dedicate this post to you ladies.
Walk through the wonderland with us and book your tickets for Hyderabad in January next year, kaiku bole toh zamanaaaaa hogaya numaish/exhibition (whichever way you roll) jaake!

Chalo baataan bhot hogaye, let’s go.

I had better entrance  pictures but Falak loves this one...

We have more rides but pictures didn’t turn out clear.

Bwoys come to Numaish either coz their women folk ordered them "Saaman rehta chalo saath mein. humlogou se uthana nahi hota" or coz unku apni taaqat aazmana rehta at these Punch ball stations.

This is our Numaish. Kaisa dikhaa?
Hope you guys enjoyed the virtual tour. Hyderabadiyaan kitte baar gaye and nahi gaye toh kaiku nai gaye?Tell us about your favorite Numaish stuff/stall 🙂
Note: We just covered what according to us makes Numaish the “Highlight”, it has more than 2500 stalls that makes this fest one of its kind in the world.
Lastly, my fellow NRIs, who are going to visit for the first time, listen to me carefully,*Dumbledore style* If you fear the crowd or are allergic to “Indian cheezan” or are too elite to go there, dust that NRI keeda before leaving the house. When in Rome do it… Kya? Did I just say that?! :O Sorry, my bad, jab Hyderabad mein hai toh hyderabadi bano, angrez/arab bannke gaye toh kuch bhi maza nai aata. Leave the it’s ” too dirty keeda” and “its too crowded” waale nakhrey outside to fully enjoy yourself. And trust me, once you come out of the numaish you cannot wait to go in there again. Mark my words. Speaking by experience 🙂
Take care. 🙂

    I remember the ‘uncle’ who was in the Giant wheel and who actually more scared than I was. He kept saying, “Chillao nakko. Khaali pet me gudgudiyan hote bus. Khatam hojata abhich! ” 😀

  4. Loved the tour and the stalls…… attended a similar one so many years ago which included a circus….. and i still rem eating “Buddhi ke baaaaal” from there too. 🙂
