Punjabis are the real gem. Being a Punjabi is so much fun and I can say it without a second thought. I have been brought up in Punjab and cherished every moment lived. Love them or hate them but you can’t ignore them. I have seen many people counting their flaws and cracking jokes on them. But Punjabis are the people who are doing hard work, earning huge money, helping everyone around them & spreading smile wherever they are.
And here’s a fun take on whatever I have closely observed over the years, which make you a truly Punjabi.
Punjabis Are Foodie Folks:
Most Punjabis are foodie persons. Punjabi cuisine is always incomplete without Makki di Roti, Saag & Lassi. Though they eat every type of dishes – Italian dishes, Chinese snacks, fast foods but they (Who lives away from home) always miss Maa de Hathan Dia Pakkiyan Rotian with a lot of butter and desi gheo ;). For them, Butter Chicken is the National Dish. :p
No matter if they wear Jeans Tshirts or Formal Suits but they always prefer ‘Desi Look’. They love to wear Kurta Pajama with Punjabi Jutti. (Punjabian Di Tohr Vakhri 😀 :D)
Punjabis Have Amazing Weddings:
Punjabis are fun loving folks and is always in the mood of celebration no matter what the occasion is. The weddings are like cherries on the cake. Even if it is your door ki shaadi, you are seen buying dresses worth a couple ten thousand . After all Ghar ki shaadi h bhai 😛 If marriage is supposed to be a non-alcoholic marriage and no beer whiskey serving is allowed in the marriage palace…there will be lots of car standing outside with beer bottles in it 😉 (Jugaad tan har cheez da rakhida hai :p )
Punjabi culture and marriage are full of energy. A Punjabi wedding is a real experience, complete with the majestic eye-catching set of thick bangles (chooda) the bride wears for her wedding, along with the expensive lehenga. (I wonder why south Indian weddings never have a DJ, and why their weddings are sober unlike Punjabis where you’ll find uncles and cousins shaking a leg to “tunak tunak” to “balle balle” to “singh is king”). Any Punjabi wedding is incomplete without ‘Munda apne viyah de vich nachda firre’ and ‘Pra hoja sohniye saadi rail gaddi aayi’ song.
Religious and Follow Customs with High Spirit
If Punjabis are good in celebration Parties including cocktail party flowing with unlimited booze, They are also very religious and follow every customs with great sentiments and pure emotions.
Punjabis Are Fun Loving Folks
Punjabis would not take offense if you crack jokes on them. In fact, they’ll laugh along if the joke is good because they have high self-esteem and are assertive. But they are also brave when it comes to defending their honor or when an act of courage is required to save someone.

No night is complete without a drink
One little ‘peg’ is a must every night to enjoy life king size and that’s a rule with most Punjabi men. No matter how tired and exhausted they are, everything goes off with a drink to chill.
Punjabis are Best Dancers in their Own
If it’s not Bhangra or Bollywood, it’s not great music. Seems Punjabis don’t really believe in putting efforts understanding the lyrics in the case of English music so the first choice is mostly filmy music. If Bhangra is playing somewhere they can not resist themselves from dancing. Sometimes, they dance like roffling on the floor. It may get as embarrassing as you can imagine but Punjabis DO NOT care. Dance like there’s no tomorrow is the mantra. Be it on weddings, a party of even a club, they love to dance, dance and only dance.
Punjabis aren’t the richest people but I’ll surely say they are large-hearted. They’re trustworthy and quite generous when it comes to sharing whatever little they have. Sharing is inherent to most Punjabis, and they’ll gladly do so, not because they like to show off, but because they are magnanimous.
In your group of friends, there is a good chance that your best friend will be a Punjabi. If ever you need to cheer up a Punjabi ‘just play a Punjabi Songs on full volume.
