71 <div class="entry-content"><p>Fourteen years ago, the only way I knew I stayed somewhere near the &#8220;heart of Tollywood&#8221; is through the presence of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shalini">Baby Shalini&#8217;s</a> house nearby and the large crowds that gather at one of the last vestiges of city living: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nandamuri_Taraka_Rama_Rao">NTR&#8217;s house</a>. It had completely escaped my mind, till recently, to check and update those two references that remind me of the Tinsel Town. So, after fourteen years, I am ashamed to say one of those bonds that used to bind me to Tinsel Town is No More.</p>
72
73 <p>Shalini&#8217;s house is kept intact by their rather wolf-like dog. It is the NTR&#8217;s house has bitten the dust. Two cramped apartments have taken over and one of the blocks has been lovingly named after the Super Star Krishna. A very sad end - not unlike the tragedy of the NTR&#8217;s demise - to a very majestic building.</p>
74
75 <p>The only reason I remember NTR&#8217;s bunglow is because it used to signal the last sign of humanity for me in that area. Beyond that building was a large sparse road, surrounded by the Most Foul Smelling garbage dump. There werent even street lights at that time. And, in such a desolate landscape, with only smelly pigs for company, NTR&#8217;s bungalow was a breath of fresh air.</p>
76
77 <p>Fourteen years on, the pigs have vanished and so has the dump. They have all been taken over by apartments of various shapes and sizes. &#8220;Desolate&#8221; is not the word that will strike you when you see them.</p>
78
79 <p>Time Changes Everything.</p>
