Romance of Punjab


This is going to be a short post … though heavy on emotions … This was a sher my Grandfather used to tell me … A sher which captures the romance of Punjab … And believe you me, it is an amazing reportoire. After all, the legends of Laila-Majnu, Heer-Ranjha, Shirhi-Farhad … The romance of Punjab!

Wagg wagg ve Chenaa deya paaniya,
Tere kandeyaan te aashkaan ne maujaan maariyaan!

Translated …

Flow on, water of the Chenab,
On your banks, lovers have had pleasant times!

This shows a number of things … the charm, the romance … and, the simplicity of Punjabi poetry!
