In July, 2009, AFP’s website beamed the headline – ‘Rude’ Delhi to be taught good manners. The report said, “Authorities in Delhi have admitted the city’s residents are “rude, impatient and arrogant” and vowed to tackle anti-social behaviour before the Commonwealth Games open in the Indian capital next year.”

The Delhi Government is an honorable institution and The Delhi Walla has no counter-argument to make except present a series of pictures of ‘rude’ Delhiwallas. Look at them and decide for yourself if Delhi indeed is a rude city.
