There are a few questions that are quite tough to answer and then there are a few that you are tired of answering. So we came up with some answers to a few question that are going to bust some myths and declare them false.

So, here they are…

We eat Kebabs in Breakfast, Dinner & Lunch

True we love Kebabs, we’ve got the Tunday Kebabi, but frankly, I’ve been there like 6 times in last 6 Years, which is once a year. It’s Definitely not something we eat on a daily basis.

We all talk like App-Janaap

Even though the city is known for the Tehzeeb it brings, only an insider could tell you how wrong that impression that could be.

Everyone around these days has these local slangs that are like Inside joke but can embarrass many who are outside of Lucknow.

We all believe in Pehle-Aap thingy

Ever been in the Petrol Pump line? It’s ironic that the City, known for that infamous Pehle App Pehle App joke, has people who fight to be the first even to fill up their Petrol tanks.

(giving this analogy because just struggled with filling up the petrol, phew)

Har Baat Par Katta Chalta Hai

Nahi bhai, aisa nahi hai….. 

The City might be the Capital of Uttar Pradesh which is portrayed as the most crime affected State in India, and it is the reason people believe Lucknow is also full of people showing off their Kattas in every brawl. Also, here is a fun fact.

Uttar Pradesh had the lowest crime rate of 113.33 compare to National crime rate 218.67 in 2013.

Girls are miles away from Fashion

I hear my Delhi friends saying Lucknow is a place where all the Behenji types are found, which is again a wrong statement, those saying this might have visited Lucknow of a parallel universe.

There are few amazing fashion bloggers in Lucknow who have got a great following too, which means girls of Lucknow are aware of the current trends thanks to these fashion bloggers.

We go to Bhool Bhulliiya for Hangouts

People who say this might only have heard stories about Lucknow from their parents who came and only visited the historical places in the city in the 90s.

While we are proud of our Culture and Heritage, we’ve got some uber cool places to Hangout at. The place has every hip place to Hangout with your friends at.

Gunj is the Only Modern Area of Lucknow

Though Gunjing (roaming around Hazratgunj) is a fascinating experience for anyone, we have many more places which is modern. The Entire Gomtinagar has so many amazing places to go and spend time.
