Our Pioneers Sat Sri Akal !

N.R.I. Pioneers whom arrived from India before 1980 to the United Kingdom ,North America & other Global Destinations. This web site is in honor of our immigrant grand parents,great grandparents,relatives and ancestors whom sacrificed their happiness to give us the opportunity of a great life. They endured much sadness and heartache to provide a brighter and prosperous future for us all. Today thousands reap the benefits of this hardwork, perseverance, courage, strength and vision. We are eternally grateful to them, for we are able to live in these beautiful lands with our modern amenities and luxuries.

Why Punjabi matters, because we have come to embod a resurgent with the rest of the Punjabis for entrepreneurhship and achieviers by nature. Because there music is kicking some serious butt globally. Because Daddy's secret weapon again are conqurering the taste buds across the world, the people of the planet are insisting on chicken tikka masala before embarking on operations, because they can teach the world about resilience and joie de vivre than any other ethnic group, because you can't ever translate "chak de phatte. Because no one can make you feel-good as much as them. "koi gla nahi" Characteristically , a Punjabi is a romantic by heart. Famous love sagas "Heer-Ranjha & Sohni-Mahiwal are played out on Punjabi soil. A Punjabi is a fighter like a cowboy by instinct. This is why Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Hari Singh Nalwa (weighed 280 pounds) put an end to centuries-long invasions from the northwest. A Punjabi is an connoisseur by taste. That's why every Punjabi Palahi wala, talks about Maaki di roti aur saang .
