Transcript of Punjab
Punjab- A land of colorful characters, of substantial pride, and tons of diverse cuisine. Multitudes of people enjoy their own varying cultures, cultures spread over this vast land. It is common to find Sikhs, Hindus, and Muslims (Islamic) inhabiting the many cities, or "districts", of Punjab.
Sikhism is the most practiced religion in Punjab. Sikhism was founded by Guru Nanak. Sikhs believe that there is a "Supreme Creator", however, this creator is formless. Sikhism is based on selflessness, equality, and principles, while emphasizing the acceptance of all. The Sikhs followed the teachings of 11 Gurus (divine teachers).
"Realization of Truth is higher than all else. Higher still is truthful living." - Guru Nanak Dev Ji
These are two symbols that commonly represent the Sikh religion. The second symbol, "Ik Onkar", meaning "One Supreme Reality."
Bright colors dance before my eyes, in a competition of beauty and intensity. It seems like a tug-a-war, as each hue vies for my attention. I find it hard to focus my eyes, as the women dance in hypnotic circles, throwing the bands of colors on their sparkling dresses into a multicolored frenzy. Not far off, the compelling fragrances of mint chutney, as well as the mouthwatering scent of the arrays of fried snacks, call for me to take one bite. However, my love affair with the magnificent buffet of Punjabi dishes was cut short. I was being pulled to dance with the other bridesmaids. Joining in the circle, I find myself automatically moving to the beats of the dholi (drummer). I laugh as I feel the fluttering of a chunni (light scarf) fly across my face. After exhausting myself, I am finally free to reunite with the various curries and warm, buttery breads. Each dish is expertly spiced, with hints of cilantro to lighten up each presentation. As the two beautiful brides embrace, the attendants of the wedding erupt into cheerful applause.
The streets of Punjab are almost always busy. Children playing around after a long day of school, women gossiping among themselves after a day of housework, and men enjoying the shade of a tree after a day of work. Everywhere you turn, there is bound to be street vendors. One of my favorite street food is Pani Puri. It's messy to eat, but well worth the trouble!
