Road Journey from Hyderabad to Kadapa: By Bus!

Hyderabad houses a myriad of attractions that beckons vacationers from all over the globe. The wealthy heritage and just right connectivity with different locations makes it a recommendable place of travel in India. On the other, hand Kadapa also called as Cuddapah that is an antique city with architectural marvel from the yore. Hyderabad to Kadapa can be easily travelled by taking a bus. I took online bus tickets from redbus, this reduced hassles largely. The smooth functioning of busways helped me to quickly arrive in Kadapa. I had plans to experience this popular tourist destination in South India. Kadapa is encircled on the three sides by means of the Nallamala and Palakonda hills. Recognized as the gateway from the west to the holy hill of Tirumala, Kadapa is also known as ‘Gateway ‘city to Tirumala.

On the other hand, Hyderabad, with the rich heritage and smooth connectivity by road with one-of-a-kind places makes it a recommendable position of visit in India. Sights like Dhamma Chakra Stupa, Ambazari Lake, Ramtek fort Temple, etc. I took the Ac Semi sleeper from Beeramguda at 5pm and reached Kadapa at 2:30am. The bus journey went on for almost 7 hours where the seating arrangement was comfortable. The bus staff took good care of its passengers and gave rest stops too.

I opted for an Ac Semi sleeper bus that passed through wonderful sceneries and landscapes, soon it grew to become dark outside and I got involved in listening songs. Mostly, I used to be reading a novel; they played a film in the television that was once established inside the bus. The bus gave relaxation stop at around 11pm; most of the passengers got down of the bus to refresh up. Journeying by the way of bus is whatever I have endlessly adored, the intent being it helps to gather many journey memories!

One End to Another


From my home state

New Jersey

where my family and llife are

to Arizona'

where i knew nobody

mayb only 3 people

who barely knew me

all i had was a suitcase

backpack, my purse

and someone who said they loved me

bring me to this starnge town

in what seemed like a strange land

away from my comfort zone

scared and alone


Soon the depression kicked in

i tried to do crafts and art i love

but the depression stuck

all i had was art and drugs

and someone who said they loved me

but actually loved the control

the control he thought he had

always pissed when i was on the phone

demanding to know who

was on the other end

controlling what i can

and cannot do

and how to spend my own money


i would cry to my mother

but i felt stuck

one day i just cracked

i wanted ouyt of the cage

i wanted my freedom

my family, my friends


soon i finally had the reigns

to control my life

gain my freedom

be in my home with my family again

love the things i love and care bout

i thought my life was over

but i wanted to continue

my story

My twisted story of a life
