10 Things You Should Never Say To A Delhiite


‘Dilwalon ki Dilli’, they say. People flock to this metro city in search of a job, livelihood or to earn a good educational qualification in the prominent colleges of the city. Newbies, take some time to understand the city’s varying mood & habits. To mould yourself in accordance with the rhythm of the city, will guarantee you a life of fun, excitement and lots of surprises.

As a popular Hindi song goes “Yeh Dilli Hai Mere Yaar, Bas Ishq Mohabbat Pyaar”.

If you are new to the capital of India, here are a list of 10 things that you must never say to a Delhiite.

1. Delhi People Are Rude And Crass

Meet the humans of New Delhi & they will greet you with warmth and kindness :)

3. Noida & Gurgaon Are A Part Of Delhi

Noida is a part of Uttar Pradesh & Gurgaon is a part of Haryana. They are near Delhi and not in Delhi. A Delhiite doesn’t really appreciate this mistake.

4. Delhi Has No Culture

It is the hub of architectural wonders, historic sights and home to many eminent writers, political leaders and thinkers.

5. Delhi People Are Dumb

If they were dumb, they wouldn’t have been politically active to devote their time and passion for many important issues in India.

6.  Are You From D.U.?

That’s not the only university in the capital region. There’s Jamia, JNU, Ambedkar University and host of other private colleges in the capital city. Assuming every Delhiite to be a DU student isn’t right.

7. Delhi is unsafe at night

8. Men in Delhi are perverts

Perverts are everywhere regardless of the city you live in.

9. Delhi is filled with Punjabis, Jats and Gujjars

It is the most cosmopolitan city in India, stereotyping it to specific communities without exploring the city’s life, is being totally ignorant on your part.

10. Delhi People Listen To Yo Yo Honey Singh Music

Ever been to Hard Rock Cafe or tried attending a classical music show in Kamani auditorium?

Delhi is a city of Dilwallahs. Even if you criticize us or have misconceptions about us, we accept everyone with an open heart….:)


  1. This is one bull shit post.
    Each of your ten points offer contradiction in the highest order. It would be wise on your part to consider various domains before making such a post.

  2. I’m originally from Los Angeles and I prefer Delhi over LA any day.
    Much more interesting and vibrant, LA is stupid. :)
