In 1968, Hyderabad was in a state of pandemonium. The city was the bedrock of the infamous Telangana agitation and witnessed both frenzy and fire as a multitude of students demanded statehood for Telangana. As one would expect, it effected the lives of people living in Hyderabad, regardless of their age, profession and residence. People lost jobs, students lost an year of their education and businesses had to be shut down.
Fast-forward to 2020 and those who remember 1968, remember it as just another year. Listen to Mirza Yawar Baig narrate his story of living through 1968 and how the lessons he learned can be applied to our post pandemic world in 2020.
