‘Tu Vs Aap’ Debate Triggers MemeFest! Mumbaikars Take Offence To A Twitter User Complaining About Using ‘Tu’-SEE TWEETS!
Indian culture can easily differ from different regions and it has been ultimately blessed with people from all the languages across India
Never engage with Bombay people in Hindi.— PratPanc (@PratPanc) February 5, 2023
You could be complete strangers and they’ll still feel free to address you with a ‘Tu’.
The same Marathi speaking crowd will use ‘tu’ for their mothers & grandmothers but they dare not use ‘tu’ for their fathers, grandfathers or any other male figure w authority.— PratPanc (@PratPanc) February 7, 2023
Patriarchy FTW! 💪🏻
They understand the concept of respect but their respect is reserved for men LOL
You have pissed off a LOT of people. 😂— Paul (@mrithejester) February 7, 2023
BTW I read the rest of your tweets, how do you feel being roasted in every single one of them?— Nephlim (@Nephlim7) February 9, 2023
Maybe, you can continue tweeting and we marathi people can enjoy reading the savage responses!
Delete...being a delhite I too had my struggles with my mumbai friends referring me as tu in beginning but I get that and started respecting the language diversity.— AWB (@sleepyhead1892) February 7, 2023
Every city has its own culture n language...nothing wrong
😂😂😂 I start doubting people's intentions when they address me with 'aap'.— Seggsually Coloured 🏳️🌈 (@Subhashitani1) February 5, 2023
We do not take opinions from people who can't leave their home after 7pm. KEEP YOUR VALUES AND BEHAVIOUR TO YOURSELF! We are proud to use 'TU'! *facepalm*— Nephlim (@Nephlim7) February 9, 2023
Tu la in Marathi is you. Aapla would make it 'hum' 'us' or 'our'. The polite version 'tumhala'. Most (local) mumbaikars have incorporated some version of this. So it's not really tu. Hope this helps.— Gayatri (@G_y_tri) February 7, 2023
Your statement is a result of a misunderstanding. The reason they use "tu" is not to show overfamiliarity or imply any rudeness but because that's the normal Marathi usage, which forms the basis for the local Hindi. It's equivalent to "tum". "Aap" is used only in UP & Bihar.— Shantanu (@shantanub) February 7, 2023
It's a cultural linguistic difference. Lived in the North for over 10 yrs. The amount of disrespect / lack of safety you find amidst the so called not-"Marathi people" reserved for women kind up there irrespective of the aaps and hums is incomparable with a tu tera freedom lele— 𝐏𝐫𝐢𝐲𝐚𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐢 Ohol (@OholArt) February 7, 2023
'tu' is also used in a dearly way in maharashtra, if you can't embrace the diversity of a language instead of imposing hindi rules,, try and stop completely engaging w bombay people. Stop w these entitlement lmao 😭— poha & chhas lover (@pohaslut) February 7, 2023
Oh God why do Delhi people ever leave Delhi. If you can't speak Marathi properly don't speak to Mumbaikars. Tu and tereko are the local lingo. Stay home princess. Mumbai does not need you.— Priya Samagod (@priyasamagod) February 7, 2023
Just imagine instead of Marathis, you were fighting with North Indians. Your TL would've been flooded with below the belt, misogynist comments. Instead, Marathi people are trying to understand where you are coming from and explaining the situation! That's Maharashtra for you.— Artificial Stupidity (@KrutrimMurkhata) February 8, 2023
