Hyedrabad Menu The capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad is the fifth largest city in India with an ancient civilization and culture. Attached to the city is its twin , Secunderbad, which is part of Hyderabad. The twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderbad are separated by the Husain Sagar, an artificial lake constr- ucted during the time of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah Wali in 1562 A.D. The city is nearly 400 years old and is noted for its natural beauty, mosques and minarets, bazaars and bridges, hills and lakes. It is perched on the top of the Deccan Plateau, 1776ft., above sea level, and sprawls over an area of 100 Sq. miles. A multitude of influences have shaped the character of the city. Its palaces and buildings, houses and tenements, gardens and streets have a history and an architectural individuality of their own, which makes Hyderabad a city of enchantment. Hyderabad was founded on the River Musi five miles east of Golconda, in 1591-92 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah. In the 16th century the city grew spontaneously to accommodate the surplus population of Golconda, which was the capital of the Qutb Shahi rulers. Many buildings sprang up along the River Musi. Gradually the city grew.
Hyedrabad Menu The Qutb Shahi dynasty founded the Kingdom of Golconda, one of the five kingdoms that emerged after the break up of the Bahamani Kingdom. The Qutb Shahis ruled the Deccan for almost 171 years. All the seven rulers were patrons of learning and were great builders. They contributed to the growth and development of Indo-Persian and Indo-Islamic literature and culture in Hyderabad. During the Qutb Shahi reign Golconda became one of the leading markets in the world of diamonds, pearls, steel for arms, and also printed fabric. Asif Jah I continued to maintain Aruangabad, which had been founded by the Mughal rulers as the capital of his new state. In 1769, Nizam Ali Khan Asif Jah II, shifted the capital to Hyderabad. The seven Nizam's of the Asif Jahi dynasty ruled the Deccan for nearly 224 years, right up to 1948.During the Asif Jahi period, Persian, Urdu, Telgu and Marathi developed simultaneously. The highest official positions were given to deserving persons irrespective of their religion. Persian was the official language up to 1893 and then Urdu up to 1948. The glory of the Golconda kingdom ended in 1687, after a valiant struggle.
Hyedrabad Menu Aurangzeb, the last great Mughal ruler, captured Golconda after a siege that lasted eight months. Abul Hasan Tana Shah, the last king of Golconda, was imprisoned at Daulatabad, where he died after twelve years in captivity.With the conquest of the Deccan and the South, Aurangzeb succeeded in expanding the Mughal Empire to cover the entire sub-continent. However, after his death in 1707, the Empire rapidly declined. At that time , the Deccan was administered by a Subedar or viceroy of the Mughal Emperor. Mir Quamaruddin, the Governor of the Deccan, who bore the title of Nizam-ul-Mulk Feroze Jung Asif Jah, declared his independence from Mughal rule in 1724. He thus became the first Nizam and the founder of the Asif Jahi dynasty. When the British and the French spread their hold over the country, the Nizam soon won their friendship without bequeathing his power. The title "Faithful. Ally of the British Government" was bestowed on Nizam VII. The British stationed a Resident at Hyderabad, but the state continued to be ruled by the Nizam. The rule of the seven Nizam's saw the growth of Hyderabad both culturally and
economically. Huge reservoirs, like the Nizam Sagar, Tungabadra, Osman Sagar, Himayath Sagar, and others were built. Survey work on Nagarjuna Sagar had also Hyedrabad Menu begun during this time. Hyderabad, under the Nizam's, was the largest princely state in India. Area wise it was as big as England and Scotland put together. The State had its own currency, mint, railways, and postal system. There was no income tax. Soon after India gained independence, Hyderabad State merged with the Union of India. On November 1, 1956 the map of India was redrawn into linguistic states, and Hyderabad became the capital of Andhra Pradesh. Golconda Fort Mecca Masjid
Menu Warangal Fort Birla Mandir B.M. Birla Planetrium / Science Musuem Charminar Hyedrabad Menu Shopping Hyderabad has been a major trading centre for centuries. It has been influenced by cultures from all directions - largely because both of India's coastlines were controlled by its former rulers. The city offers just about anything you are looking for - antiques, jewellery, handicrafts, dresses - traditional and modern - leather goods, pearls and semi precious stones, and a dizzying array of perfumes.
The main commercial areas are open Monday through Saturday except in the Charminar area, where some shops remain closed on Fridays. Street-side bazaar are open on Sundays as well. The Abids Road becomes a paradise or book lovers on Sundays. The lucky shopper may find a rare old book or a collector's issue of a magazine selling on the street at a throwaway price. Bargaining is a must on the street - a safe margin to ask for is 10-15% off the stated price. Commerce in Hyderabad begins relatively late; some shops open only at 1030 or 1100 hrs and close again for a two-hour lunch break. You must check each item you buy, for it is difficult to return or exchange merchandise except in the large stores. In any case, take care to ask for a receipt. Hyedrabad Main Markets Charminar-Patthargatti-Lad Bazaar Monda Market Sultan Bazaar - Koti - Troop Bazaar Menu Hyedrabad Cuisine Andhra cuisines has much to write home about. While
Hyderabadi is totally distinct from that available anywhere else, traditional Andhra meals involve a lot of Chillies, pickles and like to keep the taste buds literally tingling. The Biryanis and Kebabs of Hyderabad find no match anywhere else for their taste while the Avakai and Gongoora Pickles of Coastal Andhra is notable for its tangy hot taste. For those who relish non-vegetarian dishes, Andhra cuisines serves up tongue tingling recipes like the tabgy "Chapala Pulusu" (Sour and Hot Fish Stew), Flavourful "Mutton Pulao", delectable prawn and crab "Iguru" perked with lots of spices. Hyderabadi cuisines offers the unparalled Dubble Ka Meetha, Qubbani Ka Meetha. Sheer Khorma, Firni, Shahi Tukre, Gil-e-Firdaus, and a tempting choice of sweet delicacies to finish your meals, which can be rich or light as your plate desires.

the articles published in the poroceeding, the responsibility resting with the authors. About SPG Menu There had been a growing realisation amongst the geophysical community that the exchange of technical ideas and practical experience though important was lacking. With these thoughts in the background, a group of geophysicists met at the residence of Mr. M.R.Rao (First President of SPG) and resolved to form a Geophysical Society with its headquarters at Dehradun. As a result, the Society of Petroleum Geophysicists, India was born on August 15, 1992, when about 30 Geophysicists met and resolved to form an association, for improved interaction and technical exchange. The Society was registered with the Registrar of Societies as a non profit organisation on January 4, 1993. A competition to design a LOGO for SPG was held on August 15, 1993. The design finally accepted for the logo depicts an oil drop engraved with SPG. Seven waves below the drop signify seven sisters of Petroleum Exploration- Geophysics, Geology, Petrophysics, Geochemistry, Bio-Stratigraphy, Reservoir Engineering, and Drilling Engineering.
About SPG Menu The first Executive Committee of SPG was unanimously elected. The members of the Executive committee are: M Rajagopala Rao President G.C.Katiyar Treasurer S.K.Das Vice President A.K.Dwivedi Secretary D.M.Nathaniel
Exec.Member S.Chopra Exec.Member The committee organised a number of short courses, lectures and workshops which were well received by the geophysical community. In July 1994, a General Body Meeting of the Society was held when the new executive headed by A.G.Pramanik took over. Sh B.C.Bora, CMD, ONGC became the Chief Patron of the Society. A training programme on Seismic Data Processing by K.G.Gupta et.al. was organised from September 22-25, 1994. The birth of the regional chapters for Chennai, Jorhat, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Baroda also took place in the same year. About SPG Menu As a result of active association of the President A.G.Pramanik and his untiring efforts, SPG became an affiliate society of SEG, USA in 1995. Subsequently it also
bagged affiliation from EAGE. His vision provoked the Executive to take up a challenge and organise an International Conference which could bring together Geoscientists, Policy makers, Academia and Industry. The First Conference and Exposition on Petroleum Geophysics was held at Hotel Ashoka, New Delhi from Feb 9-11, 1996. The Executive also decided to hold International Conference on Petroleum Geophysics bi-annually. Subsequently two International Conferences were held in Chennai in 1998 and New Delhi in 2000. The Executive committee of the Society decided upon to have a technical journal of the society. Sh Roop Chand, Member, Executive Committee proposed the name Geohorizons which was unanimously accepted. Mr Satinder Chopra also an Executive Member of the Society was nominated as the editor of Geohorizons, the first issue of which was published in April 1996. Currently Geohorizons is being published quarterly. Current membership : Over 800 Geoscientists Sponsors Intel Co-Sponsers Oil India Limited

Laws of logic are also human inventions, like ghosts. The whole blessed thing is a human invention, including the idea that it isn't a human invention. The world has no existence whatsoever outside the human imagination. It's all a ghost, and in antiquity was so recognised as a ghost, the whole blessed world we live in. It's run by ghosts. We see what we see because these ghosts show it to us, ghosts of Moses and Christ and the Buddha, and Plato, and Descartes, and Rousseau and Jefferson and Lincoln, on and on and on. Isaac Newton is a very good ghost. One of the best. Your common sense is nothing more than the voice of thousands and thousands of these ghosts from the past. Ghosts and more ghosts. Ghosts trying to find their place among the living. ." Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

If all hypotheses can't be tested, then the results of any experiment are inconclusive and the entire scientific method falls short of its goal of establishing proven knowledge. " ".. What shortens the life span of the existing truth is the volume of hypotheses offered to replace it; the more the
hypotheses shorter the life span of the truth. And what seems to be causing the number of hypotheses to grow in recent decades seems to be nothing more than scientific method itself. The more you look, the more you see. Instead of selecting one truth from the multitude you are increasing the multitude. What this means logically is that as you try to move towards unchanging truth through the application of scientific method, you do not move towards it at all. You move away from it! It is your application of scientific method that is causing it to change! .." -- Robert M. Pirsig in Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance. BoreHole Geophysics & Wireline logging 1.

Albert Einstein In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, its the exact opposite. Paul Dirac (1902-1984) The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them. Sir William Bragg Exploration case histories 1.
