Hi I am south Indian, I think Jaats are the best people in the world. I love all Haryanvi and Punjabi people. South Indian people like me are no match for all the Jaats. Best city ever! Chandigarh let's go!

I was born in Chandigarh but have lived in South India. Let me tell you that South Indians are much more soft-spoken than Punjabis and Haryanvis.
Southern India is hands-down much more safer than entire North and Central India. Punjabis and Haryanvis - the 2 largest communities of Chandigarh are rude, rash in conversation and have plenty of attitude. They don't have control over their words and some of them cannot control their actions.
Most Punjabis and Haryanvis never listen to others, and speak non-stop with a loud voice in conversations.
South Indians will surely find these Punjabi/Haryanvi and Jatt people to be very bossy and intimidating.
This is Chandigarh culture and the true nature of 'India's most planned city'.

Chandigarh is a planned city. That's the only saving grace of this place.

But in all aspects of living, the South Indian cities of Bangalore, Chennai, Mangalore, Coimbatore, Mysore and Thiruvananthapuram are far better than any place in the rest of India.
The zone around these 6 cities is considered the most prosperous, most developed and undoubtedly the best region of India. The people in and around these 6 cities are very good and very decent and very well-mannered.

Mumbai-Pune and Hyderabad have many industries, but they lack in many parameters regarding quality of life and the attitude of the people.

People in Northern India are biased and have kept the capital of India in Delhi, which is arguably the WORST place in the world. Even the Prime Minister candidate is never appointed from South India, especially from those 6 cities mentioned above.

If the Southern region of India comprising those 6 cities were made a separate country, then that country will be among the very highly developed countries of the world.

Being a Punjabi myself, I'll have to admit that most Chandigarh people are amongst the highly rude, most arrogant, very bossy and egoistic people you'll find in India. Never make friends with Punjabis, Jatts and Haryanvi people.

Most Punjabis, Jatts and Haryanvis are Narcissists and are ready to have a bloody physical fight with you, even for a petty reason. Chandigarh is filled with such people.
Chandigarh's only selling point is that it is a well planned city, designed by a European architect.
In all parameters including cleanliness, safety, healthcare, infrastructure and people behaviour, all the South Indian cities are much much better than Chandigarh.
I myself have moved down South, and have no reason to ever return back to Chandigarh.
