The Muse: Hyderabad

 Hyderabad is the capital of the combined Indian provinces Andhra Pradesh. It is the fourth largest city in India with a population around 7.7 million. A model of self rule in the once great British Empire, the rulers of Hyderabad retain their internal poiltics while cooreating with the British Raj.  Asif Jah, a Mughal viceroy became the first Nizam of Hyderabad in 1724, a political organization that ruled the province independently for more than two centuries from the 1720's until Indian independence in 1947.
 This map gives you an idea where Hyderabad is in the scheme of the entire Indian subcontinent, it really is a crossroads between the northern and southern parts of the country and has the traffic to prove it. In the past it was the wealthiest of the princely states of India, however it has separated from its past and in the modern day has grown to be a hub of commerce, especially pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, learning, with thirteen universities, as well as technology, communication, and travel.
