Delhi in English.
Deh-li in Urdu.
Dilli in Hindi and Punjabi.
National Capital Region according to the gorement.
National Capital Territory also by the gorement.
Some even consider Haryana to be delhi.
It is not a city nor a state. An in-between.
Some call it a collection of villages.
Has extreme weathers and a strong immigration culture making it a truly Indian city. So there are punjabi, sindhi, bengali, bihari, madrasi, chinki, african and tibetan ghettos among others.
It is also the city will most roundabouts, most things are gol gol in Delhi, from the Parliament to the India Gate circle and to the way the Government functions.

Other mammoth like ungli-ready cities of India have changed their name to their "original" names when they had perfectly normal names like Bombay, Madras, Calcutta and Bangalore.
No, the ungli-readies had to go with ridiculous pronunciations of those names and rename them Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkotta and Bengarurururururuluru or something.

Delhi is confident enough to let people call it what they want and logical enough to know that people who speak different languages will pronounce words differently.

Usage

Prafool Ghaati - So cool na? I have so much more confidence after we changed that God aweful name Bombay to Moombai!!

South Indian Madrasi - Now that we have changed our name to Chennai they will stop calling us Madrasi! high five!!

Boshidapua Bondhopadya - Hain? Bomboiyas and Modorosis already changed their names? Amiiiii bhi change korbe!!!

Sassibarrapaa - Bengalarurururluruluru sounds so much more normal than Bangalore, right?

Dilli guy - Fucking idiots.

Everything in this world is Indian only!
After all we are like the oldest and wisest civilization only.
When the Europeans were swinging from trees to trees we were creating art, discovering medicine and creating the zero only.
Our culture is so much superior than the western civilization, after all they got all their knowledge from us only.
Their religions are just thousands of years old while ours predate all of them by centuries and anyways their Gods are reincarnations of our Gods only.

Usage

Chandraswami - See you have to understand that everything under the sun, in fact even the sun is Indian only. We have given the world all of its knowledge since our culture is way superior to the west.

Charles - So how do you explain a British trading company taking over your country and ruling over you for centuries?

Chandraswami - :/

English: What would you prefer, a kid brother or a kid sister?

A gambit popularized by Indian movies.

Though it sounds like an opinion seeking question, the truth is unlike. The ulterior motive is to expand the family or gain co-operation in such attempts. Innocent childrens become the pawn, in this plot.

Usage

Daddy: Tinku, unakku thambi pappa venuma, thangacchi pappa venuma?
(Daddy: Tinku, What would you prefer, a kid brother or a kid sister?)

Tinku: Yenakku rendum venum....*returns to child play*
(Tinku: I want both)

Daddy: Amma kitta sollu!
(Daddy: tell mommy!)...*smuggish laugh*

God's Gift

Definition

A remixed punjabi song by British bhangra artist Panjabi MC which became a massive mainstream hit after enthu cutlet Jay-Z put a verse on it.
But sadly, after the novelty faded it became a big embarrassment for Indians everywhere because the DJs all across the world played this song atleast once every night and when that happened, guru! shit went down!! All the desi guys would attack the dance floor as if they were giving out free old monk. All inhibitions would melt away as the dancing junta danced closer and closer with each other, just like in their native place.
When the music ended and regular hip hop came on then the sweaty tangled desi boys would slowly let go each others hands and sheepishly walk back to where they dropped their drinks or women and talk to each other about how India is taking over the world.
Some desis who came with only their gora and kala friends would either try to explain what the fuck just happened or simply say 'we are like this only!'

Usage

Paneerselvam - 'Listen it's just about 11, just hold on to my hand and don't panic ok? They are gonna play 'Mundian To Bach Ke' anytime now, don't worry it'll last for about 5 minutes, any questions you have I will answer on the way back to my place.
Shaniqua - uhn-uhn! No you di-int!!! I ain't goin back to ya'lls nasty ass place!
