Ji Aya Nu SatSri Akaal! AsslamValequm!Namaste

Punjab?
Punjab - is a state of mind.
You may live in any part of this earth but if your mother-tongue is Punjabi you are a Punjabi. Punjab is wherever a Punjabi lives! It has nothing to do with any religion or belief.
Punjab is a geo-economic region with an ancient culture poisoned by religious bigots.
The nector of religious spirit becomes poison instantly when it is injected with hate, jealousy, complexity of superiority or inferiority or simple ignorance of other people. Punjab, today, is textbook case, where ignorance and absolutely ill-educated people have made it a blend of disharmony and intolerance.
This Punjab has no future for sure.
The future lies with Global Punjab...Just read on.

Punjabi?
You may have any nationality, any religion, any color, any profession, any trade, any belief, essentially you remain a  Punjabi. Be proud of being a Punjabi.

Global Punjab?
Global Punjab has more than 150 million people worldwide with majority living in Pakistan and India and rest scattered over in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America.

In Global Punjab - all are welcome. There are no biased restrictions nor any fundamentalist ideas about life.
Punjabi culture is so ancient that having seen so many invasions, so many heavy mistakes and tragedies, Punjabis have become more global than any other community. Their globalness may not be very apparent at first, but inside every Punjabi is a global citizen, striving to make it in this life.
We are attempting to unite all Punjabis and not dividing them by classes, castes, religions or nationalistic systems, which have been  means to screw us up in last thousands of years. Enough of all that! That has only made us poorer, ignorant and a rural lot.

PUNJABIS IDENTIFICATION

I bet that if PUNJABIS were together and not hurt each other, we would be today a nation of 150 million richest  people of Asia. See how the homogenous cultures like Japanese, Koreans and Germans have performed. They also have different religious beliefs but they are not foolish like us. Sorry atleast one Punjabi herewith is accepting the historical truth that we are a community which never learns from our mistakes but we keep making more and more of them thereby making us a poor lot.

If we do not open our eyes we will remain as scattered and broken as we are without any identification. We are not going to achieve anything by making ourselves weaker by dividing further and hating each other but accept the fact that Punjab is a great nation with all colors, all beliefs and all sub-cultures. That day when we accept that fact, true progress will start. I guarantee you that ignorant politicians in Pakistan and India will learn this fact only after 10 more wars, after screwing our remaining resources, by killing atleast 5 million more Punjabis and then on the barren  and NUKED  lands, we will be playing cricket.
I call upon all my friends to open up and give a wake up call to our ignorant friends. If you think i am crazy than you have no idea on the usefulness of history.
Wiser people learn from their mistakes. Idiots keep doing them.

Advantages of a Global Punjab
By being together, we can discuss our past, think about future, think about making money and thus prospering our community, helping budding business people, providing a network to great geniuses and talents of our community.

We have seen how destructive and dangerous it is to divide a community and see it decline in Punjab in last many hundred years. CAN we learn something of past. Can we make it better? Yes we can. If you we are really ready we can. Punjabis have never attempted to think of all of us as a networked community as the walls created by our ancestors, who lived in tiny villages, were tall enough to breathe such impossible ideas. Let us work hard to educate our community leaders, our country legislatures and other educated lots that divided we are piece of a tiny dot on the map and together we are very powerful.

Punjab of future?

A progressive Punjabi, wherever he may live in whichever condition, is trying hard to survive the onslaught of extremists and bigots who impose their narrow-minded mentality in the name of past and history. We believe that Punjab's future is more important than past. And Punjabis can ONLY grow if we shed our idiotic divisions and foolish village mentality which has divided us so much that even among a subcaste there are further divisions. Thats nothing but a shame.

Please do not screw the majority of Punjabis living in Pakistan, India, UK and Americas - who just want to be better economically and socially.

We appeal to all upwardly mobile Punjabis to join us and express ourselves as a global homogenous community with one voice and let us face the truth and learn from it. Our principle endeavor should be to learn and educate ourselves on how best to make use of the opportunities and make ourselves a strong community.

We are in process of building up a user-friendly website for all PUNJABIS worldwide without any distinction and we invite your suggestions and ideas to add new features.

Punjab is one
Punjabi Network  welcome to all Punjabis worldwide.

           Punjabi Network is proud to present a platform - let us make it a unique one - where Punjabis of any origin, any country, any creed or caste, any religion or nationality can meet and exchange ideas and thoughts. Punjabi culture is a common heritage of all of us.

We kindly request you to open up your heart and cleanse it from any nationalism, any religion or any regionalism.

We are not breaking Punjab into more and more smaller units but uniting all Punjabis and be a better community. The simple reason is we are a homogenous community with same language, same traditions and same culture. In our definition religious beliefs should be a personal matter or for that you can go to your nearest temple, Gurudwara or Mosque. Let us not mix religion, politics and Culture in the same breathe. That is absurd and very explosive. That does not work. If you have different opinion then please be happy and wish you the best but dont force your views on others.

Let us learn from our common heritage, our common culture and enrich it with our worldwide experience, knowledge and richness of heart.

Let us demonstrate to the world that despite our distances and differences PUNJABIS have a unique and common culture.

Let us be proud of our PUNJAB.

Punjab which lives in our hearts and souls and whose soil gave richness to our souls and a special strength to our genes.

Great Sufi Saint Satguru Nanak Dev ji says in Guru Granth Sahib

Antar mel lobh jhhoodth antar ki gat tahi jivo...

that why do you wash consantly from outside
If you really want to purify your self
remove the mael of lobh (greed), Ninda (find errors in others) and Jhooth (not speaking the things as they are)
of your mind first, purify your heart to cleanse yourself by not being greedy, find errors in oneself instead of finding them in others, and speak the things as they are and not manipulate for petty achievements.

Further he says

bahar thoondat bahut dukh pave...ghare amrit ghat mahi jiyo

That you are looking for contentment and pleasures outside
in vain, when there is a great deposit of nectar of peace in your own heart..so do not attempt find false and temporary sukh outside try go into yourself and you will find a cosmos of happiness.
