South Indians are well known for their polite and sober nature. They are the people who always mind their own business and always look into their own affairs not bothering others. As a city, Bangalore is green and lush with friendly people. This cosmopolitan city has a pleasant weather as compared to other states in India.
It is also a peaceful city with people belonging to different religions peacefully living with each other. It was originally known as a city of retired people; however, today it is considered as an IT hub and is referred to as the "silicon valley" of India.
After living in Bangalore, you will start loving this place, as the weather and people around make your living a comfortable one to experience.
People from other states, who usually don't know much about Bangalore, end up asking some silly questions to Bangaloreans. Here are some silly questions that people from other states ask Bangaloreans. So, next time you meet a Bangalorean, you know what not to ask.
What Else Do You Eat Apart From Dosa?
After hearing this question, any South Indian would think of the person's lack of knowledge. This is simply a stupid question, as there are a lot of South Indian delicacies apart from the usual dosa like Puliogree, Paisam, Mallige Idli, Tatte Idli, Maddur Vada, Uddin Vada, Chow Chow Bhath, Akki Roti, Ragi Mudde, etc. Just have a walk through Commercial Street, Brigade Road, VV Puram, etc, and you will get to have some mouth-watering Bangalorean delicacies.
Are You A Madrassi?
This is one of the most weirdest questions asked to almost all Bangaloreans. Just like all Indians from the centre of India are not Biharis and not all North Indians are Punjabis, the same way, not all South Indians are Madrassis.
If You Know Kannada, Do You Also Know Tamil And Telugu?
This is one among the funny questions which Bangaloreans are asked about all the time. It is always better to refer to the local language guide of each state before asking this question.
What's It About The Accent?
You might have seen in many Hindi movies that when they cast a South Indian character, they make him/her speak in an exaggerated accent. Each state's language has a particular accent, and if you belong from any Indian state, you might also be having a typical accent, which people of other states may find a little different.
Do You Pray Rajnikanth?
Another silly question which Bangaloreans hear a lot about is mostly related to Rajnikanth. But, FYI Rajnikanth has mostly worked in the Tamil film industry. He is a reputed and well-known star not only in the South of India, but also in other states and countries.
Ohh, " You Are From Karnataka Which Means You Are From Bangalore?
How can a person think that if someone is from Karnataka he/she automatically becomes a Bangalorean. No doubt Bangalore is the capital of Karnataka, but it doesn't mean that every other person from Karnataka has to reside in Bangalore!
Are You Obsessed With Gold And Silk?
It's not about the obsession for gold and silk, but a matter of style and tradition. Bangaloreans have a rich culture along with a good dressing sense. Unlike other people, they prefer to keep their dressing rules simple, unless it is a special occasion. They dress as per the occasion.
