Hyderbad trip

It was fruitful day today. A very hectic day but relaxing from routine week day work. Here is the update about the ZPHS, Bhallanpally students Heritage walk trip sponsored by Oracle. I anchored it from TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE and also with support from BPALLY google group. Arranged Bus from Kalwakurty depot, spoke to the driver in the morning and spoke with teachers to make sure they are on time. Bus came around 10AM to SALARJUNG museum. There were 56 students and 6 teachers. I got support from Naveen (cousin and member, bpally group) and 18 Oracle volunteers. Trips in hyderabad are fully organized by the oracle volunteers. They have taken exception care in handling the trip. Nice planning and execution. We went around in SALARJUNG museum and then had a quick trip around charminar and few snaps at Mecca MASJID. It took around 3 hours. Then we went to Oracle campus and had lunch there. Prize distribution for the painting competition and then we had a quick trip of cyber towers and other IT
