How are You in Punjabi
Punjabi is spoken by so many different communities and different religious, I will discuss in belief how we greet each other in Punjabi.
SAT SRI AKAL
When we see each other the first line of most of the Sikhs Or the people who belong to the Sikh religion. they say ” SAT SRI AKAL”.This resembles that the ” God is the ultimate truth”. This is spoken by the Sikh most of the time.
And now we come to Hindu because so many Hindus speak Punjabi. And they see each other, what they say usually Salam- that means peace and they reply with the same thing Salaam. They also say ” Namaste” means “good day” or namaskar that means ” be Well “.
Punjabi is also spoken by Muslims. they say ” Salam alaikam” which meant “Peace be upon you”, and they reply with “wa-alekum asalam” means greater peace upon you.
How Are You?
tuhāḍā kī hāl he?
Now we have said hello now we move further and ask “ how are you” in Punjabi, we say like this ” ਤੁਹਾਡਾ ਕੀ ਹਾਲ ਹੈ? / تُہاڈا کی حال ہے؟
(tuhāḍā kī hāl he?)
I am fine
Mai Thik han
then we generally reply with something like: “I am fine” In Punjabi, we say it like this “Mai Thik han “/ ਮੈਂ ਠੀਕ ਹਾਂ
some people do use this short answer, that means ” good”.
Some people also use this reply that means “. doing fine “
