Today, lots of North Indians are living in the South and they can be often heard saying that in North “we do this, we have this and that…..but not in South”.
These thoughts and concepts usually are about culture, lifestyle, and most importantly food! Fortunately or unfortunately, a relative divide was formed after the movie ‘2 States’ featuring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor!
Are you still wondering what all this is about? Take a look.
Yaar language da bada siyapa hai aitthe…
If you know Hindi then it’s easy to find your way through nearly every state in North India. But in South, you are like a lost animal!! Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam make things more complicated. So the question is how many languages do we learn?
Aitthe taan auto wala vi angrezi bolda…
This we all know that in north, we don’t have many good colleges. The only reason we throng to the southern part for higher studies. The little or lack of absolutely no political connections makes it even better. People are so smart there.
Baccheaan ch tameez hi bahut aa…
Compared to North Indian kids who have outbursts of tantrums, their parents only wish to have some mannerism and values that of South Indian kids. Wishful thinking, but we can’t help but think about it only.
Kudiyan ne kujj vi paaiya hunda..
This one is strictly for the girls. Girls who come to stay in South India are surprised or rather shocked that girls here wear pretty much anything!!
Oh le!! Aitthe rotiyan vi mildian ne…
Rice, idli, dosa, etc. are their staple diet and North Indians get fed up eating it every day. North Indians survive on rotis, many get surprised and happy to see rotis being available here.
Mainu aitthe aa ke sareaan gaalan hi bhul gayiaan…
In North India, no sentence is complete without one or two abuses in between. Every other sentence ends with a ‘gaali’. But when in South Indian, things change. People are very subtle there, so either we try to forget the abuses or teach them some new ones.
Tu vi Madrasi hai na?
One of the worst case of stereotyping is this. Every other person we assume must be a Madrasi!! Every South Indian is synonymously attributed as Madrasi. There are Kannadigas from Karnataka, Telugites from Andhra Pradesh, Malayalis from Kerala and the Madrasis from Tamil Nadu are actually called Tamilians.
