    Jat Paaji sey ek sawaal

    Jat Paaji...

    Correct me if I am wrong but..thuadian gallan ton istarah lagda aey keh tussi East Punjab ton woh. Sade bade bazurgan da taaluk wi East Punjab naal si.yaani mere baap dada sub East Punjab which paida houay. Sade Dada (murhoom) pukke Punjabi si...partition ton pehlan Jullunder onhan da ghar si, par partition toun baad watne-aziz tooun aise nikle keh wapas jana nahin hoya, lekin Punjab di yaad onhan de dil wich hamesha rahi khas kar Jullunder di. Onhan da kehna si keh Jullunder di zameen itni zarkhez si keh othe da tarbooz ik ik ton da hunda si, te dus log mil ke usnoon uthande si. Jullunder dey kharbooze, te saron da saag sari duniya wich wi dohoondo te nahin milda. Isliye, Jat Ji, jey tuadi East punjab wich rihaish we teh sanoo das sakde woh keh ajkal othe dey ki haalaat neh. Hun te tarbooz da size hor wi wadda ho gaya hoye ga. Assi agar apne waderian de mulk nahin ja sakde, te kum as kum othon diyan khabran te le sakde an. Mein apne Dada de pind da wi naam patta karan gi, ho sakda we keh oh pind wi aje tak qaim howe.

    Badi mehebani te rab rakha.

      PiarE Antidote Ji,

      MaiN bahut kashamkashi wich haN tuhadE sawal da jawab dEnH lai. Gall ih hai ji ki maiN Canada wich paida hoiA saN. (I always tend to say that my English is very poor taN ki maiN at least Punjabi boldE sajjana nu majboor karaN ki oh Punjabi bolanH. Meri ammi jaan nE ik gall merE dimaag wich casa ditti ki, "BEta aapni ma boli di hamEshaN ma vargi kadar kariN. I guess that is what I am trying to do. She also taught me Punjabi, I guess thEth (she is from East Punjab)). MerE abba sahib Sialkot wich paida hoi sun. Sadi family bahut dEr bannu wich vi rahi hai. Before the partition, my family migrated to Canada. SadE taqriban sarE hi rishtEdaar West wich hun.

      MaiN East tE West Punjab nu kaffi study kita hai. Tarbooz tE kharboozE dE size barE taN maiN kujh keh nahiN sakda. SadE bEli, Kaka Gill Moga, East Punjab toN hun. Is lai mainu Eastern Punjabi jiada aondi hai.

      Sadi kujh family dE member Bahawulpur ajE vi rehndE hun. MaiN ajj takk Punjab nahiN dEkhia. Per mainu Punjab di history bahut pata hai.

      I guess this would clarify certain questions. KhabaraN je tuhanu chahidiaN nE puranE pind diaN, I can still help.

      Rab Rakha.

        CM Ji,
        Thanks a lot for your response. For a long time, I've had this desire to 'find my roots'..all those places my Grandad took so much pride in describing to us, and where my father spent part of his childhood. Like Jat Paaji, I was born and raised outside of the sub-continent, I've visited Pakistan only once, and have never been to India. My Mom's ancestors emigrated out of Afghanistan
        and settled in Amritsar and from there moved to Pakistan after partition. Having lost everything they had during this move, my mom's family emigrated to Africa, England and finally to America, where they've been residing for almost three decades now. My grandad had businesses in Africa, that is where my father grew up and where I was born and raised until I came to America for educational purposes and have stayed on since. It has always been my heart's desire to visit Jullunder and Amritsar, especially the villages where my Mom and Dad were born. My Dad's family came from a small village near Jullunder called NawaN Pind...do you know if it still exists?? Unfortunately, both my parents and grandparents are deceased, so there is no easy way to find out details about where exactly they lived but I'll try to find out from my other relatives.
        Being as proud of her Punjabi heritage as she was, my dadi took great interest in teaching us the Pubjabi language and I am glad she did. Partition may have made sense for those in power, but on a personal level, it has been a disaster...so many hearts broken, so many families disrupted. My Dadi could never get over the trauma of having had to leave her house in the wee hours of the morning. However, what has been done cannot be undone. I hope one day I will get a chance to visit my ancestors' places of abode...one day some day!!!

        Jat Ji...
        Sanuu har Punjabi bolan walla Jullundri ladgdaE.
        CM Paaji bade resourceful bande lagde ne.. inhan kollon apne Jullunder di kher khabar puch sakde aan..kiun CM Paaji theek kehya na???

        Tuhadi dowan di badi meherbani..
        Salaam, Sat Siri Akaal te Rab Rakha.
