This week, we had a few days of political agitation. The issue was the splitting of the Andhra Pradesh state so that the northern part of it would become a separate state. That part is called Telangana.
The leader of that movement was fasting to death, supporters were making demonstrations, shops were closed, etc. A few of my teammates were unable to come. Church on Sunday was migrated to house churches.
Now, its over. The Central government has decided to grant the request. The rest is a matter of how and when. Splitting a state, establishing a new capital, making elections... this is going to take time to set in place.
