Seems like Pandu Reddy is frustrated with life. Dont get me wrong Hyderabad is all that he said but it is also so much more. Relatively speaking Hyderabad is no worse than any American city excepting the traffic. You have miles better public transportation and much better safety to walk on the streets. If you have a car then like any American city you can go from home to destination without any hassle but you can also actually afford to live inside the city instead of a suburb 20 miles away from downtown.

Job market is fluid and opportunities for those who put in the work is no problem. Water and electricity used to be issues but seems to have been solved in recent years.

Now, Hyderabad is the best in the world at something very dear to me. Food. I have traveled a bit and nothing even comes close to the cuisine in Hyderabad. This alone is worth putting up with all the problems that abound in this city. And the food is cheap, dirt cheap. QoL+++++.

Hyderabad is among the worst places to live in India. Having lived in Hyderabad, I can say that it is very highly polluted and filled with enormous amount of crime.
There is absolutely no greenery in this town. Hyderabad is arid, very dry and a dust bowl. People litter everywhere, even at the shops entrances, road sides, storm water drains, ponds, lakes, absolutely anywhere.
Hyderabad is a good place for criminals and hooligans. Everyday plenty of women in Hyderabad are molested, raped and sexually harassed. Chain-snatching, pickpocketing, burglary, extortion, mugging and mental abusing are very common in Hyderabad. Tuktuk drivers will loot every penny and overcharge the rates.
There is roasting heat in Hyderabad every summer. The temperature in summer exceeds 45 degrees C and you feel as if you're inside an oven.
And just like Bangalore, Hyderabad attracts the worst graduates from across India. Boasting itself as a software hub, you'll hardly find as Computer Science graduates working as Software Engineers! Instead you will find useless Mechanical, Electrical, E&C, Chemical, Civil Engineers working as software engineers in Hyderabad!

These are real facts about India's software industry. It is the worst in the world and Indians never say "No" to anyone. These Indian software companies only care about Billing, Quantity, but not Quality.
Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai and Gurgaon are body-shopping centres of India. Recruit worthless "yes-man" people throughout the country to get cheap billing from clients from Western Countries. Indian tech industry is by far the worst in the world.

Hyderabad's quality of life is pathetic. It is another urban mess with lack of trees, plenty of dust, slums and traffic.
Burning heat in summer is what you will get in Hyderabad.
Crime is increasing rapidly and healthcare and education are for the rich people only. Healthcare is a business here.
Hyderabad has become a Dystopia.

From my cost of living, lifestyle, safety, transportation, income , healthcare, it is comparable to living
in New York , tho' safety seems to be better here, while pollution is high.
With my income at $600/pm it is difficult to live in NYC, USA. Lifestyle is very expensive in NYC.
