Somewhere in Hyderabad....

Charminar, the 428-year-old monument in Hyderabad, was damaged when a large piece of its lime stucco work on one of its four minarets fell off on Wednesday midnight. People familiar with the matter said the damage could have been a result of the gale and heavy rain that struck the city a couple of days ago. The damaged portion also exposed a crack in the minaret, which officials said might result in the collapse of more portions.
