The Last Nizam: An Indian Prince In The Australian Outback by John ZubrzyckiThis is a lucid and compelling history of one of Indias most wealthy dynasties and one of its most controversial royals. The Last Nizam is the story of an extraordinary dynasty, the Nizams of Hyderabad, and how the heir to Indias richest princely state gave up a kingdom and retired to the dusty paddocks of outback Australia. With vivid detail and anecdote John Zubrzycki charts the rise of the Nizams to fabulous wealth and prominence under the Mughal emperors of India, giving a rich and vibrant portrait of a realm soaked in blood and intrigue. Above all he describes the strange - sometimes comic, sometimes tragic - life of Mukarram Jah, His Exalted Highness, the Rustam of the Age, the Aristotle of the Times, Wal Mamaluk, Asaf Jah VIII, the Conqueror of Dominions, the Regulator of the Realm, Nawab Mir Barakat Ali Khan Bahadur, The Victor in Battles, the Leader of Armies, the last Nizam, the man who left behind the diamonds of Golconda and the palaces of Hyderabad to drive bulldozers in the Australian bush. A delicate and detailed work, The Last Nizam adds a crucial chapter to the history of India, capturing the very scent of wine, women and wealth whose appetites kept the Nizams in news and scandal while simultaneously deepening their legend.

Hyderabad: After Hyderabad, it is now the turn of Andhra Pradesh to disappear from the list of public sector banks, depriving both Telugu states of their identity in the banking sector. Two years after State Bank of Hyderabad became history with its merger with the State Bank of India, it will soon be curtains down on another bank from Telugu states. SBH was the identity and an integral part of the rich legacy of this historic city and one of the last remnants of the Asaf Jahi dynasty of the erstwhile Hyderabad State. The latest move by the Centre will cut the emotional connect of Telugu-speaking people with Andhra Bank. He pointed out that after bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, Andhra Bank continued its presence in Telangana. Leaders irrespective of party affiliations in Andhra Pradesh found fault with the Centre's move and said this would hurt the sentiments of Telugu people.
