Dilli Dil Walon ki, tu jaanta nahi main kaun hun, Bhai Nahi hai, chal chutiya, bhand, and so forth you probably heard such expressions or slangs if you studied or lived in the capital of the country. Besides its food, winters, and beautiful monuments Delhi is famous for its slang, which makes it remarkable from other parts of the country. Delhiites are popular for their uproarious behavior, flashy lifestyle, and fashionable clothes. Earlier Mumbai was renowned for its tapori language, but now Delhi has its own standard dialect and slang which sets it apart.
People who have come here to study or earning a livelihood may find Dilli slang awkward at first however sooner or later get adjusted to this new language which is a blend of fondness and wilderness.
