B is for Bhangra, Balle and Brruaaaahhhhh

Though I have missed 3 days of A-Z challenge. Before I try to attempt fifth day’s challenge, I will first complete my second, third and fourth day’s challenge. The word for second day of challenge is Bhangra. It’s a Punjabi folk dance. Earlier only boys use to perform it. These days it is common among both genders and I’m myself very fond of it.

Punjabi’s express their happiness through Bhangra. You cannot stop a Punjabi from doing Bhangra if you have played Punjabi music. There’s an automatic vibration in their feet which makes them feel like dancing. Yes! I too feel that vibration and there is a popular saying – “Ek bari Punjabi gane lagado fir to Punjabi generator ki awaz pe bhi naach lenge”, which means Play punjabi music once and then a punjabi can dance to a generator’s voice too. Funny! That’s not true. But yes Punjabi’s are fun loving and they don’t need reasons to celebrate happiness. They are Happy go lucky types. And when a Punjabi is happy, he will do Bhangra and say Balle! or Brruuaaahhhh!!!

Balle or Brruuuuaaahhhhh is said when a Punjabi is very happy.

Punjabi 1 – I got a car!
Punjabi 2 – Oye Balle!

Punjabi 1 – I got hitched!
Punjabi 2 – Oye Balle!

Punjabi 1 – Finally! I’m flying to Canada.
Punjabi 2 -That’s a very good news. Brruuuaaaaahhhh!!

Now you got it when to use Balle or Brruuuaaahhh with a Punjabi :).
