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 with you 100%...i am also a punjabi and proud 2 b one.. but no one this site says anything bad about any1... i didnt read anything that should be takn 2 heart... we are all frnds here.. and no1 needs to say anything bad about any1... this is happy place to be and talk to every1.. so guys lets not get into these kind of topics.. bc this can start somthing that no one wants to get in... so lets all be happy and ....
Hi friend ,
I wasnt talking about this forum , i was talking about the general impression, come on we'hv discussed more controversial topics on this forum!!!!! I agree we're all friends and nobody is bad mouthing us punjabis , it was just a general discussion like any other topic.
I agree with you. They show punjabis as jokers in the movies. Guys If you haven't watched Hawayein or Asan Nu Maan Watna Da I suggest you watch those movies and then you will find out what the real punjabis look like.
There are so many punjabis around but I don't get it. why the hell to they dress up some person as a punjabi. He looks like a joker then. For example: Johny Lever in Raja Hindustani I was so angry when I watched the movie. My dad was watching YMLH with me yesterday the part where they show KS. He said o finally they found a punjabi. Thank god they didnt dress some guy like a cartoon.
I agree that all this should stop b/c it's an insult to all the Punjabis.
Btw I too am a Punjabi (Sikh) and I am really proud to be a SIKH.Edited by Manjot - 14 years ago
Btw I too am a Punjabi (Sikh) and I am really proud to be a SIKH.. i
i second to this. .
yea u r so right in this tv/movies they really messed up with siks,s image. they always try to make fun of it. & we have to bear it. its getting too much. i reallly feel sorry for this.if i,m in that line, i will try to make sure that no one can do this kind of things, then no matter if they r for sikhs,hindu,s or muslim. cause
all of us know this that before being a sikh,hindu or muslim .
sada pehla daham hai humanity. ( we r human first)
than i don,t understand that why these few people like to make fun of sikhs like that.
people r been always diffrent then others in each religion then no matter what that religion is.. but cause of this kind of peole who like to hurt others people like this. have no sense.
look if u can,t respect anyone religion, righteousness or characteristics, ,,,so then u don,t have any right to dis-respect as well anyone,s religion, righteousness or characteristics........
i guess this the simple rule for this.
these r just what i beileve not offense to anyone..
First of all, this is a good topic and I think this is the first time I'm responding in this new section.
Anyway, I am Punjabi as well and I'm proud of it too. I totally agree with you guys. Punjabis are made fun of in movie and they are shown as fools. As a matter of fact, this doesn't only happends to Punjabi it happends to Gujratis and other communities too. I think this is totally wrong and the actors/actress should stand up against it.
