Charminar friends

In Hyderabad historic city center in a monument called the Charminar, built about 400 years ago by the then ruler of this area of India, who was Muslim.  It was his way to thank God for relieving them of a plague.  Although the monument was beautiful and we could go up inside of it, the most interesting part of the visit was the people we meet.   The crowds were thick, but people were friendly. Many wanted to take pictures or talk with us.  We talked with a middle-aged gentleman for a while about world peace and justice, where he encouraged the younger generation to do a better job than the older generation had done.  Then we meet a group of university students from Kerala, a state further south in India, who were in Hyderabad to attend a special two-month school to study for the entrance exams for Indian Institute of Technology, the premier engineering schools in India.  We stood below the Charminar and talked to them for a while, as you can see in the below video.
