    For Urdu speaking members...

    This thread is more or less a spin-off of 'Question for Urdu speakers'.

    All the talk about different areas of India (where Urdu is spoken) got me wondering where the Urdu speaking members on GS are from.

    I believe I'm half-half. My maternal side is from Delhi & Badayon, whereas my paternal side is from UP.

          My whole family is from Hyderabad Deccan. They left when Hyderabad lost its independence in 1948.

                    Mom's side -- grandparents from alahbaad

                    Dad's side -- grandparents from aligarh

                    Sadiyah -- ppl from aligarh arent much connected but from alahbad are very much in touch (Dania ) just an obsv. from my family.

                            Sadiyah, no. I was just referring to the connections b/w alahbadis. They seem to be everywhere and usually can be tracked down thru nanas/dadis/etc. I dont know Dania as yet, but who knows -- she might just end up being my nana's cousin's great grand daughter..
