18 Things You Should Never Tell To Someone From Delhi
SPONSORED

Five years back when I first stepped into the city of Delhi, I felt entering a completely different world. After a few days, there was a creeping hate rising in me for this city. ''Rants like it's too hot, the people are snob, the pollution is high...'' became a part of daily conversation. However, as I started exploring this city and meeting new people, another side of Delhi was unveiled. The initial hate slowly turned into deep love.

Though the stereotypes about the people of this city are not entirely false, the best part is that they are not true for everyone. The years of living in the city slowly seeped some of those stereotypes into me too, thus making me a part of the world whose image I need to protect.

So, if you are visiting this city or planning to move or just curious, then you need to know the things that turn the Dilwallas of Dilli into 'Danav'. Beware and do not ask or utter these things with the sweet residents of Delhi.

1. Mumbai is better than Delhi.

The first thing that is certain to make any Delhiwalla cranky is telling that Mumbai is safer than Delhi. Well, we will not go into the details of reality but comparing these two cities is like comparing India with Pakistan. 

Now you understand the gravity of the situation. Isn't it?
