Punjabi

Punjabi is a vibrant language having its deep roots in Punjab, the land of five rivers in India. Many great religious movements grew in the fertile plains and enriched Punjabi. Over different periods of history, Punjab has seen its boundaries expand and shrink but Punjabi broadened its horizon and now it is a well known language not only rich in folk literature but also in the field of commerce and entertainment.

It is spoken in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal & Bhutan. Punjabis, particularly Sikhs have powerful presence in USA, UK, Canada, France and other countries. Punjabi is written in Gurmukhi and Persian-arabic script. It has been kept alive by Gurus & Sufis (Holy Teachers). Guru-mukhi literally means language from the mouth of the reverend teacher . More than Sixty million people speak Punjabi. It is more prominent in the main land of Punjab & is the official language of the State. It is also spoken in other states e.g. Bihar, Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
