India is the melting pot of cultures. With a country as diverse as ours, some stereotypes are bound to crop up. If she's Punjabi, she must be loud. If he's Bengali, he's an intellectual. Bengaluru weather is the best, but the traffic is a nightmare. Kerala is full of houseboats and banana chips. Who amongst us hasn't heard these stereotypes? Well, Twitter recently found a new pastime - mocking these common Indian stereotypes - all in good fun, of course.

Check out some of the funniest, cheekiest 'Where are you from' tweets that take on Indian pigeon-holing tendencies and give them a funny twist:

1. The one Bengali phrase everyone knows, all thanks to a certain song
