People lived in Delhi are generally known as 'Delhi-ites'. Being surrounded with major IT and cyber hub cities like Faridabad, Gurgaon and Noida, Delhi is counted as the fifth most populated urban area in the world. Delhi has also seen a lot of changes in past few years with having better roads, flyovers and excellent metro lines making life easier for people to ride smoothly in and around the city.
For the shopping and movie freaks, the city has a number of markets, malls and entertainment complexes. Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, South Extension, Sarojani Nagar, Hauz Khas, GK-II and Chandni Chowke are some of the best places for shopping, especially for women. Khari Baoli Market near Chandni Chowke is seen as Asia's largest wholesale spice market.
Delhi has a mixed culture as people of all communities and religions live here. However, English, Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi are the key languages spoken in the city. Looking at the vast culture, tradition and modern lifestyle, it is rightly said that Delhi is city of 'Dil Walo Ki'.
Just remember the golden words refer to yourself as hum and address people with a ji after their names, that should get you by most problems, but otherwise Hindi and Punjabi are the most widely spoken languages, and English is well understood. Car and auto drivers can normally speak in broken English, but speak to them in hindi and you will get a better rate.
