The Telugu Boom refers to the migration of a large number of Telugu speaking people from the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to the United States of America and Canada from late 80s consisting of the migration of students and Information Technology workers which continues to the present day; as of 2017, as per Katherine Hadda, American Consulate general in Hyderabad, one in every four Indians going to USA is a Telugu person. With the onset of IT revolution in the late 1980s and 1990s coupled with high unemployment and corruption led more families to send their undergraduate children for higher studies to universities of developed countries on better job prospects; this was supported with F1 visas program of USA and similar programs of other countries such as Canada and UK. The Y2K problem and Indian government's Software Technology Park initiative helped many small companies to set up shops in Hyderabad that helped prospective employees to use H-1B Visa program.

Heinrich Sutermeister

Heinrich Sutermeister was a Swiss composer, most famous for his opera Romeo und Julia. During the early 1930s he was a student at the Akademie der Tonkunst in Munich, where Carl Orff was his teacher. Orff thereafter remained a powerful influence on his music. Returning to Switzerland in the mid-1930s, Sutermeister devoted his life to composition, he wrote some works for the radio, starting with Die schwarze Spinne in 1936, before turning to television opera. His most successful stage work was Romeo und Julia, premiered in Dresden in 1940 under Karl Böhm. Sutermeister's penultimate stage work, Madame Bovary, first given in Zurich in 1967, is loosely based on Flaubert's novel. With many characters cut, it consists of monologues for Emma Bovary, sung by Anneliese Rothenberger. For his final opera, he adapted Eugène Ionesco's play Exit the King. According to musicologist Elizabeth Forbes, this opera, premiered in 1985 at Bavarian State Opera, with only six characters, a tiny chorus and a small orchestra is, in its modest way, as effective as anything Sutermeister wrote.

He was the brother of Hans Martin Sutermeister. Their grandfather was the folklorist Otto Sutermeister. See List of stage and broadcast works by Heinrich Sutermeister. 1.

The Rock Hotel

The Rock Hotel known as Rock Hotel, is a historic hotel in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. It has been described as "one of the Mediterranean's most famous hotels," and as "an institution in Gibraltar and the Mediterranean." Built in 1932 by John Crichton-Stuart, 4th Marquess of Bute, the hotel is set in a 3.6-hectare landscaped garden and contains 104 rooms. It is located in a large white Art Deco building along Europa Road, overlooking the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens; the Rock Hotel was built by John Crichton-Stuart, 4th Marquess of Bute, began operation in 1932. In the years after it opened, the hotel was managed by Rudolph Richard and earned a reputation as one of the finest hotels in Europe, its notable guests included Sir John Mills, Winston Churchill, Errol Flynn. During the 1930s and'40s, the hotel provided visitors with a first-hand perspective on the area's military activities. During the Second Italo-Abyssinian War, visitors could watch as Britain's Royal Navy engaged in manoeuvres off the coast of Gibraltar.

American journalist Westbrook Pegler stayed at the hotel and took movies from his balcony of the British fleet engaged in exercises. In November 1935, Pegler reported that the hotel's management instructed guests to leave the full-length glass doors open while a new gun on HMS Hood, the largest warship afloat at the time, was tested, he noted that the hotel's balconies "afford a fine view of the pageant of peace" and described "a mighty thump that popped eardrums and rattled glasses on the bathroom shelf" of his room at the Rock Hotel. In July 1936, the hotel sustained minor damage during the Spanish Civil War. A shell from a Spanish warship attempting to shoot down a rebel aircraft exploded over the city, causing a small landslide in which rocks and fragments struck the hotel's fire escape ladders. In 1936, a rebel plane dropped a bomb that damaged the hotel. During World War II, military officials stayed at The Rock. Guests dealt with noise from the construction of war tunnels. In September 1941, an American war correspondent described his stay at the hotel: "I dropped off to sleep in a comfortable room at the Rock hotel to the thunderous lullaby of the dynamite blasters.

The next morning, after a breakfast of bacon, toast, orange marmalade and coffee – a remarkable breakfast for wartime Europe – I set off on a tour of the passages." Until his death in 1947, the hotel was owned by the Marquess of Bute. The hotel had declined by 1950 when B. Vispaly, who had worked at the Hôtel Meurice in Paris, was in charge. In April 1951, the hotel sustained damage in the explosion of the RFA Bedenham, an incident in which a 1,000-ton British munitions ship blew up at the Gibraltar naval base; the Rock Hotel has hosted numerous internationally renowned celebrities and a number of celebrity weddings. Bernard Montgomery and Dwight D. Eisenhower stayed at the hotel while they were planning the invasion of North Africa, Winston Churchill and Errol Flynn stayed here. In April 1962, the 47-year-old actress daughter of Churchill, was married to Thomas Touchet-Jesson, 23rd Baron Audley, in a civil ceremony at the Rock Hotel. In 1962, Sean Connery and Diane Cilento stayed at The Rock Hotel after a marriage ceremony in Gibraltar.

Since 1959, the hotel has been operated by the Bland Group. The Bland Group was founded in 1810 as a shipping agency and provided a passenger service and transported supplies for Gibraltar's military garrison. Joseph Gaggero acquired the company in 1891, it has been run by the Gaggero family since that time. In 1997, Stephen Davenport of Wood Hall Country House Hotel, West Yorkshire, became general manager of The Rock, he launched a £1.2 million refurbishment programme at the hotel soon after arriving. Stephen Davenport has now retired and Charles Danino has taken over; the hotel is set in a 3.6-hectare landscaped garden with a wisteria-covered terrace. It is decorated in a colonial style and has 104 rooms, including some suites, junior suites and penthouses; some of the rooms have ceiling fans. In the 2009 guide book, "Frommer's Seville and the Best of Andalusia," the author described the hotel's Rib Room Restaurant as the "single finest dining room on Gibraltar". According to the hotel's web site, Moorish and British styles of cooking predominate at the hotel's restaurants, which are led by head chef Alfred Rodriguez, affiliated with the hotel since 1973.
