From Kolkata To Mumbai, Desi Twitter Beautifully Describes Indian Cities As If They Were People

Every place that you visit in India tends to have its own story. Each city is characteristically different from the other. Each has a different vibe, a different soul almost. If our cities were people, we’d have some pretty interesting characters. And these tweets are proof!

It started when a woman took on Twitter to share a quote by artist John Berger about how different cities have a specific age, sex, and a story to tell.

“Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.”

The tweet soon went viral, and I’m glad that it did because it triggered netizens to describe their own cities as if they were people. And the result is beautiful! Here’s a look:
