Jhok Jamia Panjab Da

Description "Jhok" stands for popular folklorist melody sung by the people in the North West region of united Punjab. Its main merit is its melodious high pitch tune and its mass appeal. This Punjabi verse composed and designed on the lines of Jhok exhorts the native people of Punjab not to ignore their mother tongue at the cost of the official language Urdu, imposed by the foreign invaders. Punjabi, being the language of Sikh Gurus and other saints and sages of Punjab and being a common native language spoken by the children, wives, family members at home in Punjab, it is an insult to Punjabi's dignity to opt for Urdu. It praises the linguistic, musical, literary qualities of Punjabi and its sweetest flavour[edit]
