12 Misconceptions Non-Delhi-ites have about Delhi-ites

“When you judge others, you do not define them, you define yourself”

TU JANTA NAHI MAIN KAUN HU” the favorite one liner of Dilliwala’s. This statement might have portrayed a negative image about the people of Delhi. But being the capital of India you’ll find all types of people here. The super wealthy one’s driving Jaguar as well as the the poor one’s riding a bicycle. The reality is that we Dilliwala’s have a big heart that’s why everyone calls it “Dill Walo ki Dilli“.

Everyone has a misconception about Delhi-ites let’s have a look at the popular one’s :

  1. That Delhi people are proud of being Delhi-ites.
