Daffa Ho Ja Khotte! That Must Be A Punjabi Parent Talking!


You may refer to this as the language a majority of Punjabi parents use with their kids. A Punjabi kid will agree that what may seem like abuses to others are actually expression of love, affection and expectation. Now, who addresses their kids with haraamzada, kanjar or kutta!

We all hear it and over the ages, we have gotten so used to hearing them that they are accepted as a norm. One thing a Punjabi kid will surely agree with is that this form of communication looks good only on Punjabi parents because the accent doesn’t suit everyone. 

But then, what to do? These words or lingos are something we just can’t resist counting on! KHURKI handpicks common dialogues of a Punjabi parent:
