You Are A True Blue Hyderabadi If.....

Please note: I did not write this. Thanks Rohitesh, for forwarding this to me:)

1 . Your answer is 'seedha chale jao' when somebody asks you for directions,whether it is to Malakpet, Masab Tank, Malkajgiri or Moosapet.

2 . You come across tailors sporting the board: 'Immidiot delivery in two days onli'.

3. You have at least one cousin, friend, colleague or acquaintance in the US in software.

4. Every time somebody gives you a piece of good news, the first thing you ask them is 'Party kab hain ?'

5. Refer to any past as 'parso', be it yesterday or three hundred years ago.

6. You call 11 AM 'subah subah'.

7. You label your boss as 'Dimakh Kharab'

8. You look at the fixed price stand and still ask 'dene ka bolo'.

9. You feel offended by someone looking at you (Kaiku ghoor raa be?)

10. You think you are a born shayer and use some typical filmi batein in stylish urdu and crack some romantic jokes.

11. While someone does the above, you say to yourself 'chubbe saale ,mooh dekh aaine mein, tere ku kaun pat thi, pataaney waala tho main hi hoon'.

12. You can say the typical "Light le le baap" and be cool without analyzing what the situation is.

13. You feel its legal and your Nizami birth right to show your hand and stop the traffic (better than a traffic policeman) while you cross the road whenever and wherever you like.

14. The words 'Nakko', 'Hou' 'Kaiku' ,'hallu' are an integral part of your vocabulary.

15. You tell your friend that you will 'just come back' ("abbhich aathu mein") and your friend knows that either you will take a couple of hours or not come back at all.

16. You are reading this and secretly admitting that you are, after all, a true blue Hyderabadi!
