Stereotypes About Uttar Pradesh

When someone living in Uttar Pradesh move to other cities like Delhi, Mumbai, they hear many things. Constant among all the things is the view of UP that people have framed up in their heads. People still tend to believe that UP is that dark, dusty place, which and the centre of every illegal activity it used to be. It is highly unlikely that people will ever try to find out about these themselves.

So here are some stereotypes about Uttar Pradesh that have been prevailing for quite a long time, now:


1. For starters, UP and Bihar are not the same.

3. Tum sab katta rakhte ho?

This notion about people from UP is absolutely wrong. And also we don’t just randomly jump from vehicle, shooting recklessly. You were not supposed to take Mirzapur so seriously.

4. So, have you ever tried paan-gutka-masala?

People saying these things should try pan masala themselves so that they keep their mouth shut for at least a few minutes.
