Artist: Gurdish Pannu
Heer was a Punjaban, Sohni was a Punjaban, and so was Sahiba. Wasn’t Anarkali a Punjaban too? This cannot be a coincidence.
So, why does beauty (and a lot of it) seem to reside in a Punjaban, to the point that the two become inseparable. Is it her sparkling eyes? Or is it the curviness? Or the vanity painted allover her face? She is beautiful and strong and confident – she knows it. And such is her beauty that only painters are able to do some justice to it; and they too fail, often.
It shouldn’t be difficult to tell how smitten I am with her. And it shouldn’t be difficult to tell that I was a highly elligible candidate when it came to falling for a Punjaban. Did I? The answer to that question requires far more space and time than either you or I can afford here.
