"Mera joota hai Japani, Yeh patloon Englishtani, Sar pe laal topi Roosi, Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani"

No matter how far we go and how great we become, our heart will always belong to our roots. The following adage has been done to death but it holds true in the case of Indians. You can take an Indian out of India but you cannot take India out of an Indian. We believe in Maa ka khaana over restaurant food, ghar over any other place on earth and our mother tongue over English. Here are 10 signs that you are a desi at heart:

1. Your English might be flawless but you still prefer conversations in your mother tongue.
