12 Signs That You Are Born And Brought Up In Delhi

You have been withstanding the wrath of Delhi's extreme weather, you have mastered the Dilli slang, you know where to shop, you are a true Delhi Wala at heart. You don't find a single flaw because you are a true Delhiite. 

1. You Are Accustomed To The Unpredictable Weather Of Delhi

You are always ready for the scorching heat of Delhi summers; you know you will be swimming your way to work in Delhi monsoon and you know how to turn Delhi’s winter into an opportunity to go on a shopping spree.


2. The Price Is Never Right

Accoring to you the price is never right, whether shopping at sarojini or Janpath. Quote an amount halfway, if the shop wala refuses just move on to the next shop and you will get your goody for the price you were ready to pay. Every Dilli wala has mastered this art. The Art of bargaining!


3. Hinglish All The Way

We don't suffer from language crisis, We speak “Hinglish”. One language is not enough, neither Hindi nor English.

Street Food is Delhi's lifeline. You can never get enough of all the Chaat, Dahi Bhalla Papdi, Golgappe and Aloo Tikki and an assorted range of heavenly street food.

You can look like a Mumbaikar, Banglorean or a Punekar but you will always sound like a Delhiite. The way you speak will always give you away.


5. The Jugaadu Delhi Wala

You know every possible jugaad there is to know. Delhiites know the fix for every issue, from repairing broken pipes to broken relationships, literally everything.


6. Mera Baap Kaun Hain

You have heard this like a million times. Someone pranged your car and the only thing you could hear is “Tu jaanta nahi mera baap kaun hain” and you are now only interested in knowing if his or her dad is a car mechanic.


8. You Know Where To Shop

You know every nook and corner of Delhi. You know that Paharganj is for leather, Nai Sarak is for books, Chandni Chowk is for embroidered bags and silk garments and Sarojini is for clothes. You know all the best deals in city like the back of your hand.


9. Where Can I Get Kadak Maal?
