'Telangana' amongst hottest searches on Google

Buzz this
Telengana is amongst the hottest searches on Google right now. Interest zoomed up this week, with the maximum searches from Hyderabad and Delhi. Sites like Telenganaonline have seen a 400 per cent surge in traffic in just seven days. Twitter gets over a hundred and fifty messages every hour, some tongue in cheek, others a bit more informed.

Orkut has got a pro-Telengana hue, with over 1,000 victorious status updates, while YouTube has loads of videos uploaded over the past 24 hours - for anyone who needs a backgrounder on the issue. Bloggers are having a field day too. From militant separatists justifying a new state, to horror-stuck predictions of India breaking up, they are all here. So if you don't know yet about the fire down south, log on and get informed.
