Delhi Lingo 101, Yaar

Editors posted on 02 September

There are many things that make Delhiwaalas, well, Delhiwaalas.

Of the many things, there's the stuff that we say. Some of it's downright hilarious and apt, while some one-liners have us rolling our eyes {even though we probably used the same line in our last conversation}. We're a city that talks the talk, walks… okay, no, we just drive everywhere. But whatever one may say, there's something about Dilli.

Illustrated by Angel Bedi, here's Delhi Lingo 101.

Saturday/Sunday/Monday Mornings sound like this…





Delhi's a small world, and we're all 'friends'…



Because we've all said this at some point in our lives…



There's something {is there?} about Delhi boys…




Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number. Be my bestie, maybe?



We, in Delhi, fight for our rights. Starting with a functional meter…

meter se



There's something about Delhi girls… maybe it's the things we say, and the way we say them.
