India's 29th state: an end to discrimination?

Residents of Telangana say they will finally get a fair deal and see an end to discrimination.

    A day after India’s parliament passed a bill carving out its newest state, reactions ranged from jubilation to concern.

    Hyderabad, which lies in the newly formed Telangana region, is home to people from Telangana and Seemandhra.
