You can go to a continent miles away from home and no one may get a single word of the English you speak, but the minute you tell them that you’re a “Punjabi”, you will most probably get a “balle balle” or “sat sri akal” as a reply. If you are nodding and smiling at your screen while reading this, then you, dear Punjabi kudi,are the one we’re talking about! Here are a few things Punjabi girls just cannot do!
1. Not talk loudly
Because we don’t believe in khusar pusar!
2. Buy stuff at its original price
Because hello? Haven’t you seen that ad? The one which says you can bargain on the MRP?
Do you see that girl standing in the corner, talking to her friend over a glass of coke? Yea, Nope. That’s not one of us. The one at the centre of the crowd, putting Shakira to shame over a glass of whiskey...yeah that’s definitely one of us!
4. Not know swear words!
We have the latest edition of the “Great book of swear words”. Don’t make us use it!
5. Run out of interesting stories to tell
We have a family probably equal to the size of a European town! How are we supposed to have nothing to talk about?
6. Go on a diet!
Me: Diet? Mom, what’s a diet?
Mom: Nothing puttar! Tu aaloo ka parantha kha!
7. Hold grudges and say nothing!
We.Just.Can’t. If we have something against you, we are going to erupt on you with words which may sound rude at that moment, but hey, we don’t keep grudges in our hearts. Only good memories :)
8. Turn down a challenge
We may rock at it or we may not! But we ain’t sayin “No” to any sorta challenge. Whether it’s a bike race or a golgappa eating competition!
