Punjab translates to "Land of Five Rivers".
These rivers refer to the rivers Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, and Beas.
All are tributaries of the Indus River, the Chenab being the largest.
The five rivers makes Punjab one of the most fertile regions of India.
Punjab's fields are so breath-taking, had to add another palette.
And because the Golden Temple looks so different at Amrit Vaylaa (the ambrosial hours before dawn), had to add another palette.
Pindh translates to Village. Villages make up the bedrock of Punjab.
Havelis were grand mansions that bustled with life generations ago.
Many havelis have fallen into disrepair, yet they remain beautiful reminants of an era gone by.
Havelis always had a courtyard. Usually light, airy, with meticulously decorated structures.
Mouthwatering dish of Amritsar, Punjab.
Another mouthwatering dish.
Amritsari Lassi is a thick, cooling yogurt-based (almost buttermilk) drink that compliments these heavy meals.
Or, Lassi can be enjoyed on it's own :-)
Lassi can also be a dessert.
Certainly gives Hot Cocao and Marshmallows a run for their money!
Kulfi, a savory ice cream (ice cream is an under-statement) treat. Pistachio-based is most popular, yet it can be any flavor.
Sohni Mahiwal - one of the many timeless and tragic lovestories of Punjab.
Heer Ranjha - one of the many timeless and tragic lovestories of Punjab.
Gidha is a lively, festive dance done by ladies to celebrate and express joy!
This music video is a lovely Gidha performance.
So many beautiful colors Gidha dancers wear - had to add another palette!
Teej is generic name for festivals celebrated across India by girls and women.
In Punjab, this festival is known as Teeyan. Teeyan involves women getting together and performing Gidda, married women visiting their families and receiving gifts. It is also traditional for women to ride on swings.
Phulkari is an embroidery technique that means "Flower Work". In olden days women created these colorful shawls for themselves and family, making it a true folk art of Punjab. Now the Government is trying to promote this artform.
Because I love colors so much.
Jutti are shoes. Who can live without shoes?
More colorful, the better!
And who cannot love jutti in every conceivable design!
With Paranda, one can never have a bad hair day!
