The city of Hyderabad has been a witness to many unpleasant incidents in the last few years owing to the Telangana agitation. Now, the state has been formed and its first CM KCR has been striving real hard to ensure that age old Telangana traditions are brought to light. One among them is the Bathukamma festival.
KCR has ensured this gets the right propaganda and it is showing results. Many tourists and visitors of Hyderabad are seeing the Bathukamma flower arrangements on Tank Bund. They are getting curious and taking snaps in front of the arrangements. This is a scoring point in first attempt.
That way, there are many festivals and cultures of Telangana which have been neglected. During the TRS regime if they can be brought out then it will be a great move by the government. For now, Bathukamma is getting national recognition and the fest is on till the Dussehra celebrations.
