Hi guys,

this may be a controversial topic but I read something on the board of JJKN that set this train of thinking in motion in my mind. I am a Punjabi and man am i proud of it, but the general impression that seems to be going around is that Punjabi's are stupid people and not very intelligent. I hate it when people talk or think like this , Punjabi's work hard and party even harder , i really think punjabi's know how to live life to the fullest, they are big hearted and warm and usually are successful whichever part of the world they are in and I am so sick and tired of this cliche that seems to judge punjabi in such a way.Even in movies you see punjabi's being made fun of and this should stop!!!!!! I have nothing against people from other regions but they are certainly not more intelligent than punjabis . Please chime in everyone and lets see what u all fee?

 

I agree but sometimes we have to be good-natured and laugh about it.

But at times I get annoyed too.

Jo Bole So Nihaal - the movie was a total disgrace! And was not even funny!!

O,K let me give you my intake on this topic . I am half bengali ( Dad's side ) and half Sikh( Mom's side )..........and i married a Bong !!
Now i have noticed there are these typical things that are said about BOTH Bengalis and Sikhs .

For Bengalis they say , women wear the pants at home , eat lot of fish , are very bright , Are lazy , are timid by nature , way too arrogant about their culture etc !!

For Sikhs , they aren't supposed to be very bright , are strong , brave , large hearted , more of a patriachal society ( as in more chauvnistic ), boorish by nature etc.

Funnily both are opposites and all my life i have ended up defending one with the other . People have made jokes , had discussions with me and i usually take it very lightly since i am a cocktail !! LOL But at times i find it annoying !! But i must admit , most often i love pulling a punjabi's leg with mean punju jokes and do the same with Bong's . And i am a thali ka baingan which switches side in this discussion as an when it suits me .

I love to say .........i have my brains from my dad's side and my looks brave nature , bindaas attitude from mom's side !!( You see BEST OF BOTH WORLDS )LOL

Once it happened i had an Aunty (family friend from my in laws- Bengali ) discuss a punjabi wedding with us . She kept complaining about how boorish punjabis are , they dress garrishly , are show offs blah blah .........And every few minutes kept apologising to me , since i am half a punjabi too . I wanted to smack her . I finally respectfully told her - that punjabi weddings are a lot more fun than Bengali one's .Bengali wedding , people are so tight upper lipped . So damn serious , as if its a funeral . She was ofcourse shocked and shut her trap !! Wink
I feel its fine to joke around...TILL A LIMIT . But don't cross your limits to the extent you start hurting people . So lighten up and take kidding around without getting upset ..........but give it back if it goes too far !! Smile
