Hyderabad is a major city in southern India, capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh. It has a population of 6.7 million.

Hyderabad was formerly capital of the Princely State of Hyderabad, ruled by the Nizam of Hyderabad. At the Partition of India in 1947, the Nizam, a Moslem, wished to take his state into the newly formed Pakistan, or alternatively to establish an independent state. These wishes - at iodds wuith those of his subjects and of the Indian government, led to a year-long standoff until Indian armed forces invaded and occupied the territory in 1948, forcing the Nizam to sign the treaty of accession to India.

Today, Hyderabad is the centre of India's booming IT and bioscience industries.
