I have fallen in love with this language. Punjabi is so much fun. I remember in school when there used to be just 3 Urdu-speaking students (including me) in the class, and rest 20-25 students were all Punjabi. I started picking up their funjaabi accent and some of the common mistakes that they'd make in the gender of things. They never spoke punjabi, so I could never learn that language. The only thing I learned was saying "Showcase" and "Chheyti ker kurriye" in punjabi accent :D (Try saying it, it's fun :P)

One day I forwarded a punjabi text msg to a punjabi freind, and he asked if I made it up myself? Obviously I didn't. But he wanted to hear a punjabi sentence from me. Now that was hard. I told him that I can understand a bit of Punjabi, but can't speak. Anyway, I tried refreshing my memory for any Punjabi sentence. And miraclously I did come up with one. At that very instance I called him up and told him. The sentence was:

"Saanu ki pata paijaan. Asi ta hurn he pind to aya oun, battiyaan waikharn" :D

[Oh God, it's so hard to write Punjabi :D]

And he got such an instense laughing fit at that time ke bus!!! :D The whole day he kept laughing. Evil him never taught me anything in Punjabi since then.

One of the main reasons for me liking this language is Punjaagi clips they (used to) show on TV. They are so dead funny, one can never resist their laughter :D

Here are a few Punjaagi clips that I love the most :)


Rab Raakha! =)

PS: I'm interested in learning this language. So if any of you is an expert in this language, please contact me :)

PPS: The forwarded txt msg was:
"Nakhray twaday tauba tauba,
Ajeeb twada style ay,
Call ya msg te tussi kerna ee koi nae,
Aiwaien rola paya ay ke saaday kol mobile hay"




lol :P

And I'm not going to say that on phone, you know it :P
