When in Delhi, ‘Bol’ Like the Delhiites Do
Don’t be a chomu and brush up your Delhiwala lingo!
“Yeh Dilli hai mere yaar, bas ishq mohabbat pyaar” and loads of masti. But there is something else about Delhi that you gotta love – its bhasha.
We’ve got a list of 12 words that are often used by Delhiites. And if you are visiting the capital, it’s best you get familiar with its lingo. Otherwise, you’ll just be a Chomu. Samjhe kya?
And Delhiwallo, do let us know if we’ve left out any of your favourite words.
(We all love to express ourselves, but how often do we do it in our mother tongue? Here's your chance! This Independence Day, khul ke bol with BOL – Love your Bhasha.
