There is a unique charm in the residents of Delhi, which makes them stand apart in the crowd.
Disclaimer: any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental (well almost!)
Their conversations revolve around good food, bad food, new food, famous food, quality food, quantity of food served, cheap food and expensive food. They’ll conveniently ignore an earthquake discussing the next meal!
Like it or not they have the most rocking taste in music. Their playlists range from hardcore Punjabi songs to most romantic Bollywood medleys and extend to English blockbusters. Special mentions to the fusions they create listen and propagate on their woofers.
They have a dialect of their own, which functions differently from the rest of the country,
Like curse words are used to express sheer love, cops are addressed as family members (mamey,chachey, etc), F word is used to express delight and so on and so forth.
This talent is acquired by every Delhite out of the necessity. The population is immense and hence one has to literally pave his/her way through overtly crowded lanes. Speed has its scars and this can be seen on every car in Delhi. The dents are the memories of the war called commute!
Most of the Delhites are seen with oozing confidence. One does not shamelessly ask for extra golgappas, then pani, then sukhi papri because the water was spicy and hence make another plate out of these ‘complimentary’ tidbits. Also if you want to see what confidence is watch a Delhite drive post 11 in night!
These species residing in Delhi are a group of excited people, who love partying. They are so excited for events that they might as well cut your birthday cake in your party without even wishing you!
Also they’ll always wish well for you, because their wishes+ your success = PARTY!
Delhites swear by brands. They are fashionable people ( at least that’s what they believe) So some of them don’t mind spending hefty amounts on branded goods. For others, of course there is sarojini, janpath and lajpat nagar where you can get first, second and third copies of brands. BUT brand is a must!
If you are ever in distress just talk to a Delhite, I assure you that there is a 99% chance that they wont offer you a solid solution but I am 100% sure they’ll fill you up with so much confidence that you can face anything and everything!
Jugaad translates to easy solution for those unaware. This is something every Delhite is an expert in. It’s their creative way to solve problems in unconventional ways. So don’t be surprised if you see a dish antenna tied to cloth hangers or autos transporting refrigerators or cars on the first floor of the building.
They love with all their heart.
Once they treat you as their own, all your problems are theirs. They’ll give all they have to keep you happy and go extra miles to help you!
Do let us know how you like this article. Please share it with all Delhites because life without them would be plain boring.
