On Punjabiyat

What is it with the world, and what do they have against Punjabis? Karan's recent entry on how ungrateful we re has been the last straw. I am Punjabi, and while I'm not proud of the fact (Why shpould anyone be proud of something they haven't done anything for?), I'm bloody sick of the world bitching about us.

A look at the other communities first. Bengalis (with a VERY few exceptions), are useless, constitutionally incapable of any work, and the only thing they can do is say "Cholbe Na" and "hortal" and guzzle Roshogullas. I mean, they can distort Hindi all they want, and then they crib about the way Punjabis pronounce stuff. UPites are not particularly better, and as for South Indians, all I can say is Enna Pannari, what Rubbish.

Right. so. What the hell is your problem with Punjabis? That we are selfish? Hardly. We might not be ingratiating, but we're greateful enough. That we re mean? Look at the Sindhis, and the Taamils. That we're pretentious? Oh Bull, we're not pseudo-intellectuals who have no idea where our next meal is coming from. That we gflaunt money?
So fine, some of us do, and we don't give a shit about it. We don't atleast bother to show how intellectual we are. And as for all the shit thats said about the "Daaktar-Engineer" mentality, its ten times worst in the south. We can abuse much better than others.

Ooh, and anyone who shits about Punjabi music should get a kick up his a..e. I mean, what the hell do people who've heard Daler Mahendi know about Punjabi music. Listen to Heer, listen to the Original Mirza-Saheban and then talk. Just because the Punjabis don't stand up for themselves is no reason to shit about them! Atleast we don't find one other Punjabi in about a million square kilometres, and speak in non-stop Punjabi, the rest of the world be damned. We're tolerably large-hearted, and we don't bemoan our fate, we get up and do something about it.

Don't mess with Punjabis, Skaranses.


PPS- Khasmaanu Khao!

As painful as it is to use Blogger commenting, I should like to inform you that the last n paragraphs belong to the set of 'tosh of the highest imaginable order'. My entry is a lot more informative, guidance-imparting and truthful.

Well Manav, since you got all upsetty about it, let me remind you that my comment was meant in good humour and I don't actually dislike Punjabis. And you have clearly pointed out that half of my friends are Punjus too.

The problem is, there are two Dhruvs commenting on this entry. I'm a Punjabi, and I posted the second comment.

Ah. C'est tres interresant.
The first of my entries to get a decent number of comments! Thank you, o most noble and exalted readers!
About Punjabiyat, yes Kumar, I agree with you. Khattar, all Sindhis are mean. Not only are they mean, they also say stuff like "Are Sai Baba Ni Asaanjo Sohno Mithdo Sindh tuheenjo des muheenjo des Sindhu Des Sindhu Des"
( Which translates as Oh Dear God Our beautiful sweet Sindh your country my country Sindh Sindh)Fine, so I am being an anus.
I am feeling slightly giddy, as is no doubt evident. And if you don't give me my sheet back, Khattar, I will publically embarass and humiliate you in school)

As Gudi Says,
Punjabiyan di shaan wakhari!!

PS: Many Punjus have commented here so it's strange that no one's pointed it out, but Isn't it "Khasmaanu Khano"??

Blogger Manav said...

Akhil, You read my blog!!!!!!!
It is actualy Khasam Noon Khao, or Khasmaan nu khao, but since Punjabis speak very fast, what old aunties end up saying is Khasmaan n'Khao, with the 'nu' more implied than said.

I was reading ur blog for the first time n I was marvelling at it until I read 'On Punjabiyat'.I know that I'm commenting on a year-old post but I felt the need to present my reflections on it.U r urself a Punjabi n r proud of it.Fine.But do u actually believe that lashing out on other cultures is gonna prove that ur culture is better than the rest?It is pitiful esp. after reading ur views on Partition.I felt that the 2 posts were from 2 entirely different individuals-one a thinker n the other a bonehead.Coz on one hand u r talking about how people of distinct communities can coexist harmoniously,n on the other,u urself are buying 'WE'RE THE BEST' funda which was the root cause of fissures among people leading to Partition.And the same notion was responsible forImperialism.It made the colonizers think that they can exploit,manipulate the colonized juz bcoz they thought they were the best n can do as they want.Even in these post-colonial times we're witnessing Bush's dadagiri who doesn't give a damn to the Iraqis (for whose "cause" he destroyed Iraq) as long as he can drain out every drop of oil.It's only a medium to demonstrate that I-am-gr8er-than-u.
If u respect ur own culture then try n give respect to others cultures also coz it wasn't only Punjab or Bengal or Tamil Nadu or any other state of India which could have brought about Independence on its own.It's only when we got together that we were able to achieve it.
And as I'm a Bong,I'd like to let u know that Bengal isn't only about gorging Roshogollas n hortals as much as Punjab isn't only about squeezing people in all the wrong places to show affection n dreams of becoming a taxi-driver in London or NY.
