After coming to know about apnuahmedabad, an ahmedabadi to the core, Mr. Shivendra Shrivastava conducted an experiment on his FB profile. He invited native colloquial comments from his friends which can be heard exclusively only on the streets of Ahmedabad.
I was rolling with laughter reading up on the list ... some of them are simply rip roaring!
A few select ones are being published here for the true ahmedabadi in YOU!
