The Punjabi language is the most spoken language in Pakistan and eleventh most spoken language in India. There are 130 million native speakers of the Punjabi language, which makes it the ninth most widely spoken language in the world. Punjabi is the fourth-most spoken language in the United Kingdom and third-most spoken native language (after English and French) in Canada. Punjabi originated from the Sanskrit and is classified as an Indo-Aryan language with multiple dialects of eastern and western varieties that are mutually intelligible. The Punjabi language is one of the few languages in the world with demonstrated digraphia (the same language written in more than one script); Punjabi is written in both the Shahmukhi (mostly used by Muslims) and the Gurmukhi scripts which are mainly used by Sikhs and Hindus.
Punjab is one of the 36 states in the federal union of India. It is an enchanting place to visit, attracting voyagers to its scenic heights, agrarian backdrops, exquisite temples and ancient palaces. If you have considered visiting the Sikh spiritual centre of Amritsar, or touring the historic Patiala, or dancing in the Bhangra capital of the world, then learning Punjabi language will undoubtedly enhance your experience.
