QuoraED! This is when we pick up a trending or interesting thread from Quora and spin a story around it.
India is a land of exotic people and diverse cultures. Loved by many for its unity in diversity, it is even more beautified by its multilingual states that have a unique identity of their own. The dance, the food and the historical monuments all are a symbol of a state’s unequivocal image.
Following on those outlines, I tried to characterise states on the basis of a few but not exaggerated stereotypes. And, luckily got landed on a Quora thread that answered my question in a hilarious but relatable manner.
So the original question on the thread reads: If India Was Actually A School, Which Type Of Kid Would Each State Be?
Here is the answer which I felt was the most appropriate:
- Andhra Pradesh: The hardworking boy who does all the work assigned to him sincerely. He is taking engineering after school.
- Arunachal Pradesh :The girl who sits quietly, lost in her own world, in a corner of the class.
- Assam :The jovial guy who is always cheerful. And yes, he prefers tea over coffee.
- Bihar: The boy who always makes the loudest noise in the absence of the teacher, but has a kind heart.
- Chhattisgarh :The introverted guy who always listens to the crowd and seldom speaks.
- Goa :One of the most popular guys. He parties all day and night.
- Gujarat :The guy who lends his pen to others, and never forgets to take it back. He has visited the bank more than the school canteen.
- Haryana :The guy who has the ability to scare juniors by his accent. People try to imitate him to get some quick popularity points.
- Himachal Pradesh :That fair girl in the class who is approached by everyone – be it for homework, or for club events.
- Jammu And Kashmir :The girl who tried to do everything right, but is almost always sad because of in-school politics.
- Jharkhand :The new comer boy in the class. He is the wicket-keeper captain of the school cricket team. ;)
- Karnataka :The tech-savvy boy in the class who introduces trending technological topics in class.
- Kerala :The one with the most likes on his Facebook profile picture! He sits in the very back, but almost always performs well in exams. He also has awesome football skills.
- Madhya Pradesh: The person who sits in the middle of the class! He is friendly with both the first benchers as well as the back benchers.
- Maharashtra :That social person in class whom everyone loves. He is the most vibrant guy in class.
- Manipur :The girl who is full of grit and determination and is representing the district in boxing
- Meghalaya :The girl who always is staring at clouds! Okay, bad pun. The silent girl who likes the smell of soil during rain.
- Mizoram :Awesome person. Does his work quietly and that’s it.
- Nagaland:The person obsessed with cultural fests. Dances amazingly.
- Odisha:Nagaland’s best friend. Has won many medals in cultural activities.
- Punjab:The most swag guy in the house. The party animal, who is sometimes seen with Goa.
- Rajasthan:When most of the classmates get uncomfortable or when the day is too hot in summer, or too cold in winter, this guy relaxes.
- Sikkim:The guy who stands behind Goa in ‘line’ during assembly.
- Tamil Nadu:Brings amazing dosa to class. Totally obsessed with films. Absolute Rajini fan. Make friends with him, and he will remain friends with you throughout your life.
- Telangana:New admission. Also, a first bencher. Definitely engineering after school.
- Tripura:Sincere and hardworking. First bencher.
- Uttar Pradesh:Back bencher who has ideas that are going to be successful outside the class. One of the best athlete in the class.
- Uttrakhand:Himachal Pradesh’s best friend. Hardworking and sincere.
- West Bengal:One of the best literary-oriented guys in class. The ‘dada’ of the class. The only person to be in both cricket as well as football teams in school.
- Delhi:The best batsman in the school cricket team right now. Make him angry, he will say, “Bhaag *@#@#$”. Make him angrier, he will sit for dharna in front of you!
Well that was some great summation. It might not be a 100% accurate, but it surely gave me a giggle. One of the most clever analysations one could think of states in India.
