Learning English Alfabet The Punjabi Way! ~ Funny Indian Emails

How the Indians in Panjabi state learn their English alfabet…


Say them out loud 🙂


A is for Aiscreame


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


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


G is for Gaddi, and the way a Punjabi can pilot his gaddi puts any F1 driver to shame.


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 Intzaar, 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 untranslatable into Punjabi – does not exist in the culture.


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 .


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


U is for when you lose your sex appeal and become ‘Uncul-ji’


V is for VIP phone numbers @ Rs 2 lakhs 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 conversations.


Y is for ‘You nonsanse’, when anger replaces vocabulary in a shouting match.


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