Jai Telangana!

I hear shouts of Jai Telangana outside, I can hear the national anthem being sung by children in the school down the road, I am living in India’s newly formed 29th state. Yesterday, I asked my helper what she thought about the split, how would it change her life? She said, “What difference does it make to me, I will continue to live and work like I always have.” She further added that the only people who will benefit are the politicians, “now instead of politicians from Andhra eating up the money and buying up land in Hyderabad, the Telangana politicians will.”
