Recently so many Indian cities got changed name as its ancient times. Now this is the time for changing the name of Hyderabad to the earlier sweet, hereditary name, ‘Bhagya Nagaram’ (The Lucky City) Kakatiynagaram or Bhagyanagaram both are preferable names, but a private survey result is showing that majority of the people are interested in name change and they are preferring the one and only lucky name, ‘BHAGYANAGARAM’


Welcome all to support for getting the prestigious and hereditary name back for our city.
Requesting you all of them to follow this blog for the support and put your valuable comments.


Approximately 1000 years back, this region was ruled by Kakatiya dynasty and so many dynasties are ruled this place. In 1591, the period of Qutb Shahi dynasty’s rule only modern city developed by Muhammead Quli Qutb Shah. It was believed that the origin behind the name, ‘Bhagyanagaram’ as per this: Muhammead Quli Qutb Shah was fallen in love with a local girl (a dancer) there called, Bhagyavathi or Bhagirathi. Later he married her and the city name called as ‘Bhagyanagaram’, this name was continued up to 17th century.

Muhammead Quli Qutb Shah

Another story behind this name it was derived from Bhaganagar which stands for ‘city of gardens’. The ancient time itself this region was famous of gardens around like, Bashir Bagh, Amin Bagh, Jam Bagh, Hardikar Bagh. Lingampally and Bir Ban Bagh etc... Some of the Telugu contemporary works showing a different story about the name. It was, Poet Sarangu Rammayya named the city as Bhagyanagaramu of Bhagirathi Pattanam (city of good fortune)

After Quli Qutb Shah, the next turn was of Aurangzeb from Mugal dynasty. He captured the region in 1687. Mugal rule appointed governors for the city and soon it gained autonomy. In 1724, Asaf Jah was granted the title Nizam-ul-Mulk (The Governor of the country) by the Mughal emperor, defeated a rival official to establish control over Hyderabd. Then Asaf Jahi dynasty ruled the region until a year after India’s independence from Britian.

One of the peculiarity of the street names in City, it is unlike the names of places in other cities, the adding of suffixes such as Gudas, Bads, Baghs, Kuntas, Metlas, Pallys & Nagars etc.

Newly name changes implemented for so many Indian cities & abroad cities. Some examples are below:

Name Changes executed in Karnataka State, India

Bangalore : Bengaluru
Mangalore : Mangaluru
Bellary : Ballari
Bijapur : Vijayapura
Chikmagalur : Chikkamagaluru
Gulbarga : Kalburagi
Mysore : Mysuru
Hospet : Hosapete
Shimoga : Shivamogga
Hubli : Hubbali
Tumkur : Tumakuru
Kaup : Kapu etc….

Some of Other Cities:

Bombay : Mumbai
Calcutta : Kolkata
Madras : : Chennai
Trivandrum : Thiruvanantapuram etc…

Name changes happened in international level

Peking : Beijing
Edo : Tokyo
Constantinople: Istanbul etc…

The region was the richest and the largest among the princely states of India. The land area of the state was 90,543 mi² and its population in 1901 was 50,073,759. The city is famous for its historical & cultural heritage.

In 1955, while a visit to Hyderabad, Ambedkar was so much impressed with amenities of the city that he argued to make Hyderabad as second capital of India!! He said, “Hyderabad has all the amenities which Delhi has and it is a far better city that Delhi. It has all the grandeur which Delhi has. Buildings are going cheap and they are really beautiful buildings, far superior to those in Delhi. The only thing that is wanting is a Parliament House which the Government of India can easily build”. India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru says Hyderabad as `Microcosm of Indian culture' in his first visit to the city.

Dear Readers,
It gives an enormous pleasure to me for sharing this highly inspirational story of Mr.Suhas Gopinath. I am sure that, his success celebrity & proven record will give definitely an encouragement to you all.

Suhas Gopinath, the HERO

When 14-year-old Suhas Gopinath started Global Inc ten years ago from a cyber cafe in Bengaluru, he didn't know that he had become the youngest CEO in the world.

Today, Global is a multi-million dollar company with offices in the United States, India, Canada, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, Singapore and the Middle East and has 100 employees in India and 56 abroad.

Among the several honors that have been bestowed upon this young man, the most prestigious is the invitation to be a member of the Board of the ICT Advisory Council of the World Bank..

In 2007, the European Parliament and International Association for Human Values conferred 'Young Achiever Award' on him. He was also invited to address the European Parliament and other business dignitaries assembled in the EU Parliament. He is also recognised as one of the 'Young Global Leaders' for 2008-2009 by the prestigious World Economic Forum.

Suhas is the youngest member ever in the World Economic Forum's history. The other members include the Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, Hollywood star Leonardo Di Caprio, musician A R Rahman, Prince of Brunei, etc.

In this interview from his office in Bengaluru, Suhas Gopinath talks about his decade long journey and his dreams for the future.

Suhas Gopinath with former President APJ Abdul Kalam

On his childhood:
I come from a middle class family. My father worked as a scientist for the Indian Army. I used to study in the Air Force school in Bengaluru.

As a child, I was more interested in animals and veterinary science. But when I saw my friends who had home computers talk about it, I had this urge to learn and talk in their wave length.

But we didn't have a computer at home. In those days, computers were very expensive and we couldn't afford one.

So, what I did was, I located an Internet cafe near my house. With my modest monthly pocket money of Rs. 15, I couldn't afford to surf the net every day.

I noticed that the shop was closed in the afternoon from 1 PM to 4 PM. So, I offered to open the shop for him after my school hours and take care of the customers.

In the bargain, he let me browse the net for free. That was the first business deal of my life and it turned out to be a successful one.
Suhas with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates

On building websites using open source technology:
Once I got the chance to manage the shop and browse the net, I started building websites. It became my passion in no time.

I got hooked to open source technology after I started looking for e-books on how to build websites. They were not available as they were created in propriety sources.

So, I started using open source to build websites.

On getting the first contract to build a website

There is a freelance marketplace on the web where I could register and offer my services to build websites. I registered myself there as a website builder.

The first website I had to do was free of cost as I had no references. It was for a company in New York.

My first income was $100 when I was 13 for building another website but I didn't have a bank account. so, I told my father that I built a website and got paid for it.

I was not excited to get the money because money was not a factor that drew me to it. It was the passion for technology that attracted me. I used to build websites free of cost also. I was only a 9th standard student.

After that, I built my own portal and called it It was focused on NRIs. It was a portal where I wanted to showcase my skills.

After that, many companies approached me to be their web designer.

Suhas Gopinath speaking to students' at a conference in Austria

On buying his first computer

When I was in the 9th standard itself, I had made enough money to buy a computer for myself. At that time, my brother was studying engineering and my father thought he needed a computer.

In no time, I also bought one for myself. But we didn't have a net connection at home.

My spending hours in the net cafe working on websites did affect my studies. I spent the entire summer vacation after the 9th standard in the cafe.

On rejecting a job offer from the US

When I was 14, Network Solutions offered me a part-time job in the US and they said they would sponsor my education in the US. I rejected the offer because that was the time I had read a story about Bill Gates and how he started Microsoft.

I thought it was more fun to have your own company. Many US companies used to tell me that I didn't even have a moustache and they felt insecure taking my services. They used to connect my ability with my age and academic qualifications.

So, I wanted to start my own company and show the world that age and academic qualifications are immaterial. I decided then that when I started a company, I would recruit only youngsters and I would not ask for their academic qualifications and marks cards. I follow that in my company.

Suhas delivering a lecture at the DLD Conference

On starting his own company at 14

Soon after my 9th standard summer vacation, I started my own company, Global Inc. I wanted the name Global or Global Solutions but both were not available, so I named it Global.

I registered my company in the US as in India; you will not be able to start a company unless you are 18. It takes only 15 minutes to start a company in the US.

I became the owner and CEO of the company. My friend, an American who was a university student, became a board member.

I was very excited because that was what I wanted to do. From that day, I started dreaming of making my company as big as Microsoft.

On doing badly in school

In my pre-board CBSE exam, I failed in Mathematics. The school headmistress was shocked because that was the first time I had failed in any subject. She called my mother and said she was horrified by my performance.

At home, like any typical South Indian mother, my mother made me swear on her head that I would focus on academics.

I told my mother that the world's richest man Bill Gates had not completed his education. Why do you force me then, I asked her. She then said, I am sure his horoscope and yours are not the same!

I come from a family where entrepreneurship is considered a sin. My mother was quite upset. She wanted me to do engineering, then an MBA and work in a good company.

As per my mother's wishes, I took a four-month sabbatical from my company and studied for my board exam. I passed with a first class.

I still feel that you cannot restrict yourself to bookish knowledge. I believe that practical knowledge is more important.

In the first year, the turnover of Global Inc was Rs 1 lakh (Rs 100,000). The second year, the turnover went up to Rs 5 lakh (Rs 500,000).

Suhas receiving the Incredible Europe Innovation Award at Vienna

On looking at Europe as a market
Till I was 16 or 17, I didn't tell my parents that I had started a company. I kept it a secret because I thought they would object to it. They only knew that I was a freelancer.

We used to build websites and also offer online shopping and e commerce solutions. We even gave part time work to a few programmers in the US when we got many projects but we never had any office.

When I was 16, I saw that there was enormous business opportunities in Europe as a majority of the Indian IT companies were working for American companies.

When I contacted a Spanish company, it rejected my offer saying Indians do not know Spanish. As an entrepreneur, you can't accept rejection, especially when you are young.

I hired five student interns from some Spanish universities and told them they would be paid based on their successful sales.

They were the people who met the companies and bagged the projects for us. By now, we decided to have a home office in Spain.

I replicated the same model in Italy. I contacted some Italian university students.

Suhas meeting with Sheikha Nayhan, Minister for Higher Education, the UAE

On going to Germany to talk about entrepreneurship

The American newspapers were writing a lot about me as the world's youngest CEO at 14 from India, from a middle class background.

It was a good story for the BBC also. I never expected to be in the limelight. For me, starting a company was like realising a passion of mine.

On seeing these stories, a B-school in Germany invited me to talk to its students on entrepreneurship. I was 17 then. By now, I had completed my 12th standard and had joined Engineering in Bengaluru.

When I was 18, we set up an office -- the European HQ in Bonn. Then, we moved to Switzerland. Six months back, we started our operations in Vienna as well.

That is how we spread our operations from a small Internet cafe to become a multinational company with significant operations in Europe, Middle East, the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, etc.

On registering a company in India at the age of 18

The day I turned 18, I registered our company in India as Global, opened an office and recruited four people. I opened the office next to the Internet cafe where I started my career.

By then, he had closed shop and joined a factory as an employee. Whenever I met him, I used to tell him, 'you made me an entrepreneur but you stopped being one.'

On moving to creating products

We wanted our company also to be a product development company and our focus was on education, like the software that manages everything about a child while in school starting from admission till he/she leaves school and becomes an alumnus.

It is a nasty software which students are going to be quite unhappy about! This software was aimed only at the Indian market. I want to be the market leader in ICT in education.

Our software is being used in more than 100 schools all over India, Singapore and the Middle East.

We are now in the process of raising funds. Once we do it, we will separate the company into two -- service and product development. I want to concentrate on products as I can't sail on two boats.

World Bank president Robert Zoellick

On meeting former President Abdul Kalam
I met Dr Abdul Kalam when he was the President of India. I was 17 or 18 then. My meeting was scheduled for 15 minutes but we had such an intense conversation that it went on for one-and-a-half hours.

I didn't feel that I was talking to the President of India. We talked like two friends. He was sitting in his chair across the table but after some time, he came and sat next to me. He is such a modest person that it was a learning experience for me.
On being on the board of the World Bank
As per the wishes of my parents, I joined engineering but didn't complete my engineering: like Bill Gates! When I was in my 5th semester, the World Bank invited me to attend their board meeting. I am the only Indian on the board of the World Bank.

The objective was to explore how ICT can improve the quality of education in the emerging economies, by bringing in accountability and transparency in their financial deeds.

Robert B. Zoë lick, the president of the World Bank, decided that they could not have only Americans on the board and needed people from across the world. As they were focusing on education, they wanted young minds to add value to the work.

He preferred a young mind from an emerging country and that was how I got the invitation in 2005. Not even in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be on the board of the World Bank. The invitation was the most unforgettable moment in my life. I report directly to Robert B Zoë lick!

Some of the others on the board are the CEO of Cisco, the vice president of Microsoft and the CEO of SAP; all Fortune 500 companies and me, the only Indian!

I am helping the World Bank set policies on ICT in university education so that employability can be enhanced. My aim is to reduce the number of unemployed eligible youth in the world.

Right now, we are concentrating on Africa. Soon, I want to shift the focus on to India. It has been an amazing experience for me.

But I had to discontinue my engineering education at the time I joined the board, as I didn't have enough attendance in college!

Suhas Gopinath

On his dreams for his company
I have always believed that IT is not just technology but a tool that can solve the problems of people.

That is what I want to do in my company.

I want my company to be a market leader in software solutions concentrating on education.

When I was younger, I didn't care about money. Now that I am responsible for my employees, I care about what we make. If I am not bothered about money, we cannot scale up our business.

When I started my company from a net cafe in Bengaluru, I never ever imagined that one day my company would be a multi-million dollar company and I would be on the World Bank board as a member.

What drives me is my passion and it has been an amazing journey so far.

Jeanne Louis Calment ( 21st-Feb-1875 to 4th-Aug-1997) Lived 122 years and 164 days.

As per the available record in the world, it was Jeanne Louis Calment from France is the oldest person lived in the earth. She was born in 21 February 1875 at Arles, France and completed an age of 122 years + 164 days. Her husband was Fernand Calment (lived: 1868–1942, married: 1896–1942

Calment at the age of 22, in 1897

Calment was born in Arles and lived there itself for all of her life. Her father, Mr.Nicolas, was a shipbuilder and her mother, Marguerite was from a family of millers. Her close family members also lived to an advanced age: her older brother, François, lived to the age of 97, her father to 93, and her mother to 86. Calment was got married at the age of 21 to her great uncle's grandson and her second cousin, Fernand Calment, in 1896. Fernand was a rich store owner and this richness helped Jeanne live a lavish life. She never really had to work and pursued learning the piano, swimming, cycling, tennis and opera. Calment claimed to have met Vincent Van Gogh, the famous Painter, whom she said had come to her uncle's shop to buy paint in 1888. Calment would remember him as "dirty, badly dressed, and disagreeable person".

Calment at the age of 40, in 1915

Calment gave birth to a daughter named Yvonne in 1898. Yvonne was her only daughter who gave birth to her grandson, Frederic, in 1926. Calment outlived her daughter who died due to pneumonia at the age of 36 and her grandson too, who died at the age of 36 due to an accident. Fernand had already passed away at the age of 73 after eating dessert made from spoiled cherries.

In 1965, aged 90 years and with no heirs, Calment signed a deal to sell her former apartment to a lawyer, André-François Raffray, on a contingency contract. Mr.Raffray, then aged 47 years, agreed to pay her a monthly sum of 2,500 francs until she died.Raffray ended up paying Calment the equivalent of more than $180,000, which was more than double the apartment's value. After Raffray's death due to cancer at the age of 77, in 1995, his widow continued the payments until Calment's death.

Calment at her 121st Birthday!!

Jeanne, who is recorded as the oldest person to ever live, had a lifestyle that hardly suits this title and was an example of graceful aging. She has always proved that the ‘healthy living’ is not the answer to a long life. She was a smoker for almost her entire life and ate one kilo of chocolate weekly in addition to a port wine diet!! In 1994, her weight was said to be 45kg. She had a remarkable health and lived on her own till a surprising age of 110. She took up hobbies like fencing at the age of 85 and cycled till she was about 100 years of age. In 1995, on 17 November a documentary was released based on her life and was named Beyond 120 Years with Jeanne Calment. She was moved into a nursing home only after she had a cooking accident which led to a small fire in her apartment. This accident was said to be an outcome of improper vision. After another accident where she fractured her femur, she had to always use a wheelchair. She was at the age of 114.

A public health researcher who studied Calment at her age of 122 and said that, “She is in good health besides being mostly blind and deaf”
