Since Punjabis, in general, are lively and energetic creatures; therefore, colloquialism is well within their genes. That’s why most often they are the ones who are forefront in initiating a conversation with a stranger.
Also, they never hold themselves back in expressing their piece of mind, no matter what comes into their way. But amongst 1000s of words they speak throughout the day, there are certain words which are always on the tip of their tongue. These words might come out even when they are asleep:-
1. Chal Rehn Dey – Leave it
Since Punjabis, in general, are quite chilled out folks who take toll of their problems before their problems take toll of them.
2. Sirra - Spot on
This single word can do what even thousand of words put together can’t. ‘Sirra’ has everything to do with the eternal existence of Punjabis because this is something which comes out neither from their mind nor from their heart, but from their soul.
3. Chakk De Phatte – Buck Up
‘Chakk De Phatte’ is just like ‘red bull’ for Punjabis. However, Red Bull might only impact the body or mind, but ‘Chakk De Phatte’ goes straightaway into the soul. In a word, ‘Chakk De Phatte’ is the ultimate key to unlock the powerhouse within a Punjabi.
4. Thand Rakh Yaar – Hold it/ Easy
Since adrenaline in a Punjabi body is always on the active mode, therefore they remain on their toes.
5. Chetiii – Hurry Up
No matter how much other people may remain in ‘Hurry’ but Punjabis are never in a hurry. Wanna know why? It’s simply because they are in ‘Chetii.’
