  • ABC of Punjabi


    A is for Aiscreame

    B is for Backside, and it has nothing to do with your bum. It is an
    instruction to go to the rear of a building, or block, or shop or

    C is for Cloney and its not a process for replicating sheep, nor is its
    first name George. It is merely an area where people live e.g. 'Defence Cloney'.

    D is for the proverbial ‘Dangar da Puttar’

    E is for Expanditure, the spending of money

    F is for Fackade, and even though it sounds like a bad word it is
    actually just the front of a building (with backside being the back, of course).

    [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=4][B]G is for Gaddi, and the way a Punjabi can pilot his gaddi puts any F1
    driver to shame. (If the Grand Prix does come to Delhi there's no way Hamilton,
    Alonso or Kimi can overtake Balvinder, Jasvinder or Sukhvinder's taxi.)

    H is for 'Ho Jayega Ji', and the moment you hear that you have to be
    careful because you can be reasonably sure it's not going to happen.

    I is for Intezaar, and to know more about it see P.

    J is for Jutt, which every Punjabi seems to be.

    K is for Khanna, Khurana, etc, the Punjabi equivalent of the Joneses
    (e.g.'Keeping up with the Khuranas ji')

    L is for Loin, the king of the jungle

    M is for 'Mrooti', the car that an entire generation of Punjabis were in
    love with.

    N is for 'No Problem Ji.' To find out how that works see H.

    O is for Oye, which can be surprise (Oyye!), a greeting
    (Oyy!), anger (OYY!) or pain (Oy oy oy...).

    P is for Punj Mint, and no matter how near (1 km) or far
    (100 km) a Punjabi is from you he always says he'll reach you in punj
    mint (5 minutes...).

    Q is for Queue, a word completely untranslateable into Punjabi.

    R is for Riks, and a Punjabi is always prepared to take one
    (risk), even if the odds are against him.

    S is for Sweetie, Sunny, Simmi and Sonu, who seem to own half the cars
    in Delhi . (The other half by their Pappas - like 'Sweetie de Pappa di Gaddi')

    T is for the official bird of Punjab : Tandoori Chicken.

    U is for when you lose your sex appeal and become 'Uncle-ji'

    V is for VIP phone numbers @ Rs 15 lakh and counting.

    W is for Whan, as in 'Whan are you coming, ji?'

    X is for the many X-rated words that flow freely in Punjabi

    Y is for 'You nonsense', when anger replaces vocabulary in a shouting

    Z is for Zindagi which every Punjabi knows how to live to the fullest.
