  1. Formation: Telangana was officially formed as India's 29th state on June 2, 2014, following the bifurcation of the erstwhile state of Andhra Pradesh. The separation was a result of decades-long demands for a separate state due to perceived neglect and underdevelopment in the Telangana region.

  2. Capital: The capital city of Telangana is Hyderabad, which is also the joint capital of the erstwhile state of Andhra Pradesh until 2024. Hyderabad is a major center for technology, finance, education, and culture, often referred to as "Cyberabad" due to its thriving IT industry.

The state is known for its vibrant festivals, arts, music, dance forms like Perini Shivatandavam and Bathukamma, and cuisine, which includes Hyderabadi biryani and Telangana-style spicy dishes.

  7. Politics: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), led by K. Chandrashekar Rao, played a crucial role in the movement for separate statehood and has been the dominant political party in the state since its formation. The TRS government has focused on welfare schemes, irrigation projects, and industrial development.

  8. Tourism: Telangana offers a wide range of tourist attractions, including historical monuments such as the Golconda Fort, Charminar, Qutb Shahi Tombs, and Warangal Fort.
