History

The study of history reveals that major portion of the southern India (Dakshina Padham) was extended by Andhra region. Several dynasties ruled over this part of the country.

Historically the earliest mention of the Andhras appeared in the Aitareya Brahmana.
Historians felt that Andhras, Pulindas, Sabaras, and many other sects lived in Dakshina Padh.
It is in the Mauryan age that one gets historical evidence of the Andhras as a political power in the southeastern Deccan. Megasthenese, who visited the Court of Chandragupta Maurya (B.C.322-297), mentioned that Andhra country had 30 fortified towns and an army of 1,00,000 infantry, 2,000 cavalry and 1,000 elephants. Buddhist books reveal that Andhras established their kingdoms on the Godavari belt at that time. Asoka referred in his 13th rock edict that Andhras were his subordinates.

Culture

The culture of Hyderabad the capital and parts of Telangana are quite unique to the adaptation of customs of the Asaf Jahi Dynasty by the local populace. Some of the examples are the Deccani (Dakhni) dialect of the region which includes words and expressions from Urdu, Telugu, Persian, Arabic and Hindi. This is the origin of "Hyderabadi" Hindi, which shares some roots with the Urdu and Hindi mix of Hindustani language spoken prior to Indian Independence.
