After the last minute postponement, the new Hyderabad airport opened on Sunday midnight to the usual messy opening. First people complained that the old airport was bursting at its seams and that the facilities were inadequate. And when the new airport opened, they just changed the complaints that the new airport is far off from the city and that the approach roads are jammed and stuff. The public in general is an ass. That’s why even though am a great believer in democracy, Iam not really thrilled at the result that our democracy throws up. A great example is the kind of politicians we elect to power and the kind of actors we idolise and the kind of movies that are made. In India, every Tom Dick and Harry has an opinion on just anything on this earth.
Its like the comments they pass on Sachin Tendulkar’s batting and the tips that they like to give him while reclining on the couch at the living room. These are the same people who have never even played gully cricket.
Given a chance, people in India would love to have an airport in the middle of the city. No matter the air, sound pollution but also the risks involved in aeroplanes landing and taking over just above their homes.
To cut the long story short, here are some pictures of the new airport. Iam really looking forward to fly into the airport. Never mind the 2 hrs that i would need to travel to and from the airport from my home.
