Saadi PAGG naal Wakhri Pehchan Jag te
Kita Pagg ne hai Ucha sada Maan jag te
Jaan Sardariyaan na rul oye punjabiyo
pagg ban-ni na jaiyo bhul oye punjabiyo
      (Our Pagg/Turban has given us a different Pehchaan in this world)
      (Turban has put our Honour high in this world)
      (Dont let the Sardari go haywire )
      (dont forget to tie the turban Oh Punjabi’s)   

Mardan di aan te shaan hundi pagdi
iztaan de lai kurbaan hundi pagdi
jaan da jahaan sara kul oye punjabiyo
jaan da jahaan sara kul oye punjabiyo

        (A turban is AAN and SHAAN of a MAN)
        (and for honour it can give its life)
        (The whole world knows about it Oh punjabiyo) 

wadiyaan waderiyaan di reet jehdi bhuldi
jeth kehende KAUM oho kakhaan waang ruldi
jaye na haneri koi JHUL oye punjabiyo
pagg ban-ni na jaiyo bhul oye punjabiyo

      (A Sect that does not follow the values of the OLD and learned ones, People who forget the VALUES , traditions)
      (Will always fall and be dust )
      (Dont let any wind burn this tradition)
      (dont forget to tie the turban Punjabiyo)

This is ME 🙂

We all love Sardarji jokes. But do you know that Sikhs are one of the hardest working prosperous and diversified communities in the world. My friend told me about the following incident which I wish to share with you.

It has had a deep impact on my thinking.

During last vacation, his few friends came to Delhi . They rented a taxi for local sight-seeing. The driver was an old Sardar and boys being boys, these pals began cracking Sardarji jokes, just to tease the old man. But to their surprise, the fellow remained unperturbed.

At the end of the sight-seeing, they paid the cab hire-charges. The Sardar returned the change, but he gave each one of them one rupee extra and said,

“Son, since morning you have been telling Sardarji jokes.. I listened to them all and let me tell you, some of them were in bad taste. Still, I don’t mind coz I know that you are young blood and are yet to see the world..
But I have one request. I am giving you one rupee each. Give it to the first Sardar beggar that you come across in this or any other city.”

My friend continued, “That one rupee coin is still with me. I couldn’t find a single Sardar begging anywhere.”


The secret behind their universal success, is their willingness to do any job with utmost dedication and pride. A Sardar will drive a truck or set up a roadside garage or a dhaba, put a fruit juice stall, take up small time carpentry, … but he will never beg on the streets.
