Mera Dilli, Boledil

I found this Rajasthani couplet in "Delhi: The Emperor's City by Vijay Goel.", which in a sense coalesce my view on Delhi:


Rajasthani couplet:

'Dilli Raand Dogali, Aatan No Jaato Karey, Nar Dekhe Naato Karey Bhoganiyan Ne bhog Lee.'

It means:

'Dilli is a fickle one she shoos away facinated suitors. Only who come up to her exacting standards enjoy her favours.'


By the way, did you know that the native of Delhi is called 'Dilliwallaa' and somebody like me, who is not is a 'Delhite'.
