Punjabis are arguably one of the merriest of people you can ever meet. They have maintained an amazing personality of themselves that people always believe to be true.
They are loud. They are bold. They are brave. They are jolly. And they can take jokes on them really well.
Punjabis hail from the northern region of India and Pakistan. The legacy of Punjabis in battlefields are exemplary in nature. There are precise things that only true Punjabis can relate to, and we have enlisted some of them.
1. Patiala Peg
There is no 30ml or 60ml peg when it comes to drinking. Punjabis have their measurement, and that’s Patiala Peg. If it ain’t Patiala Peg, then it’s not a drink.
2. A Designated Drink-Car
You may have heard of a designated driver. But in every Punjabi wedding, you are sure to find a car that is stock with drinks. So that you don’t run out of whiskey.
