Living in Chandigarh can sometimes be a breeze and sometimes as dull as the snooze-inducing Hot Millions restaurants. With new malls, eateries and pubs opening up in the city, Chandigarh too is changing. Some things, however, never change! Here are a few things that make you a true Chandigarh-ite!


1. You can tell one roundabout from another. To an outsider, they all look exactly the same!

2. You can also tell one sector from another. How the hell do you guys manage to do it?!


3. Sector 17 is where you chill, and all your fondest memories of the city and your friends are associated with it.

17. You don’t particularly like Sukhna Lake, Rock Garden and Rose Garden. But then these are the only tourist attractions the city has to offer, so when out-of-town cousins  visit, your dislike gives way to familial indulgence.


18. "Chandigarh Kare Aashiquiis one of your favourite songs to dance to.


19. There’s really no divide between people from Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula. And of course the cantonment area: Chandimandir.


20. You love your city despite its slow pace. You know everyone here and are familiar with every nook and cranny of the city. You wouldn't trade living in this proper Punjabi city for any other, no matter what!
