An interesting conversation that did take place was about the passing of law to split Andhra Pradesh (the state in India I am in) into two different states. In India the land is divided into states based on the linguistics of the area. This new split from what I can gather was based on politics. The big uproar about the split is that the new state will include the current capitol of Hyderabad. The people in this area feel they have spent their time, money, and resources to build up the capitol and now it is just being given away to start over anew. (Keep in mind this is my very rough translation of the events, please correct me if anyone knows more) One thing I can say for sure about India, the people are passionate for their country and passionate in their conversations! There is constant action when talking whether it is the tilting of the head side to side or waving of the arms, it is constant action when carrying on a conversation. I may not be able to understand the words but I stay entertained.
The now previous state of Andra Pradesh.
