The idea of gathering books on Hyderabad, its history and culture, particularly the Asafjahi dynasty, is gaining ground. Many feel Hyderabad related books now gathering dust in different libraries both government and private should be protected and brought at one place.

“We need to preserve everything connected with Hyderabad and the Nizams”, said Prof. Suleman Siddiqui, former Vice-Chancellor, Osmania University.

He was speaking after releasing the book on Hyderabad authored by noted historian, Dawood Ashraf, here on Sunday. The book “Hyderabad Mushahir ki Nazr Main” (Hyderabad in the eyes of the celebrities) is all about the impressions of eminent persons on Hyderabad, its political events and culture .
