When we talk of heritage, old buildings usually pop up in our minds. However, more than monuments, or anything else, our most precious historical sites are our rocks which have been around for millions of years.
And sadly, rapid urbanization has caused a lot of our old sites to become victims of destruction. The Khajaguda heritage site, which is a protected site, has now become a bone of contention between activists and the state government, it has fallen prey to local developers and others who have been actively destroying rocks and causing other damage there.
Host Yunus Lasania talks to Ritwik Reddy, one of the activists who filed a petition with the Telangana High Court and managed to stop the destruction, about the site's importance and why it must be preserved
