Twin Cities
TWIN CITIES are a special case of two cities or urban centres that are founded in close geographic proximity and then grow into each other over time, losing most of their mutual buffer zone . There are no precise criteria for twin-cityhood, but to be considered twin cities, the cities involved have to have a similar administrative status and somewhat comparable sizes; a suburb of a much larger population center is usually not considered to form a twin city with it. For example, South San Francisco (population about 65,000) is not considered a twin city with San Francisco (population about 850,000). However, cities considered twinned by proximity do not necessarily match demographically, economically, or politically. In many historical cases, cities that grew into each other's space lost their individual identities, and the border or barrier originally separating them became almost irrelevant. An 1873 case of twin cities merging to become a united city is Budapest in Hungary, which began as two settlements ( Buda and Pest ) facing each other across the Danube at a strategic fording place along a trade route. In China, the three ancient cities of Hankou , Hanyang , and Wuchang , separated by the junction of the Yangtze and Hanjiang rivers, were joined in 1927 into the single entity of Wuhan

Hyderabad
HYDERABAD (/ˈhaɪdərəˌbæd/ (_ listen ) HY-dər-ə-bad_ ; often /ˈhaɪdrəˌbæd/ ) is the capital of the southern Indian state of Telangana and _de jure _ capital of Andhra Pradesh . Occupying 650 square kilometres (250 sq mi) along the banks of the Musi River , it has a population of about 6.7 million and a metropolitan population of about 7.75 million, making it the fourth most populous city and sixth most populous urban agglomeration in India. At an average altitude of 542 metres (1,778 ft), much of Hyderabad is situated on hilly terrain around artificial lakes, including Hussain Sagar —predating the city's founding—north of the city centre. Established in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah , Hyderabad remained under the rule of the Qutb Shahi dynasty for nearly a century before the Mughals captured the region. In 1724, Mughal viceroy Asif Jah I declared his sovereignty and created his own dynasty, known as the Nizams of Hyderabad . The Nizam\'s dominions became a princely state during the British Raj , and remained so for 150 years, with the city serving as its capital. The city continued as the capital of Hyderabad State after it was brought into the Indian Union in 1948, and became the capital of Andhra Pradesh after the States Reorganisation Act, 1956

Secunderabad Clock Tower
SECUNDERABAD CLOCK TOWER is a clock tower located in the Secunderabad region of Hyderabad, India . Constructed in 1860 on 10 acres (4.0 ha) of land, the structure was inaugurated on 1 February 1897. HISTORYA firman issued by Nizam Sikandar Jah established the city of Secunderabad after his name in 1806. To honour the progress achieved by the British officers stationed at Secunderabad Cantonment in Hyderabad , the erstwhile British government established 10 acres (4.0 ha) of land for this purpose in 1860. A 120-ft high clock tower was constructed in a park of 2.5 acres (1.0 ha) in 1896. The tower was inaugurated by Resident Sir Trevor John Chichele Plowden on 1 February 1897. The clock on the tower was donated by Dewan Bahadur Seth Lachmi Narayan Ramgopal, a businessman. In 2003, the tower was placed on a demolition list drawn up by the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad to accommodate the increasing traffic. A senior official at this civic agency of the Government of Andhra Pradesh said that they were trying their best not to demolish this structure. In 2006, the park housing the tower was chosen for renovation by the same agency. Carried out at a cost of ₹10 million (US$160,000), the park's size was reduced to widen the roads. In addition, the tower was renovated, the park was landscaped with lawns and hedges, and a waterfall was installed

Namesake
A NAMESAKE is a person named after another. _Namesake_ may also refer to a thing, such as a company, place, ship, building, or concept, named after a person. In general, the second recipient of a name, named for the first, is said to be the _namesake_ of the first. The attribution can, however, go in the opposite direction, with _namesake_ referring to the original holder of the name (the eponym ). The word is first recorded in the mid-seventeenth century, and probably comes from the phrase "for name's sake". USAGENaming a child after a relative, friend, or well-known person is a common practice in the English-speaking world. When a son is named for his father, it is customary (primarily in the United States ) to add "Jr.", "III'", or another name suffix to the name of the son (and sometimes "Sr." or a prior number to the father's name), in order to distinguish between individuals; especially if both father and son become famous, as in the case of poet, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. , and his son, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. , an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court . Sometimes the "Jr." or "Sr." suffix is applied even when the child's legal name differs from that of the parent. One notable example is that of the singer Hiram King Williams, known professionally as Hank Williams , and his son Randall Hank Williams, known professionally as Hank Williams Jr
