It is an articulate matrix of different people, different mind sets and their different way of expressions. Over the pulse of time, Delhi has evolved into a full grown adult that understands many languages and addresses people in their home way. Since the land is bordered by the states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, and states like Punjab and Rajasthan are not far away, it is easy to find their regional influence on the dialects of denizens of Delhi. Sometimes it is a style factor, sometime it is just for frolic, sometime it is a necessity. Whatever the reason may be, Delhites rejoice speaking in different tongues. Come Delhi to enjoy a joy of communication..
