    Salaam my indian friends. I just wanted to ask do any of you's speak punjabi or urdu?
    Salaam bhai, I speak Urdu as I'm from the central-North of India, not the Punjab.

    I assume you speak both Punjabi and Urdu then?

    Walakiumsalam, no brother I can't really speak proper Urdu, When i try I just end up embarrasing myself lol. I mainly speak Punjabi as my family come from the punjab province in Pakistan. The city of Faisalabad.

    You ******, I'm going to rocket launch you and your family members back to Pakistan.
    It doesn't matter if were Hindu,Buddhist,Jain,Sikh,Jew,Mus lim,Christian,Atheist,Agnostic but that were Indian first and foremost. We should be giving respect to the Muslim families that didn't move to Pakistan/Bangladeshi during partition.

    Jai Hind to that my brother. :yes:

    I am an Indian Muslim and proud; would do anything for my country. Our multi-religious society is our strength and has been for the past several thousand years, before many religions were even born.

    Why don't you try speaking to your parents in Gujarati even if they talk to you in English?

    Nope I grew in a home where everyone spoke gujarati (only speak, not read and write) the younger generations mainly communicated in english between each other but nonetheless they still knew gujarati, I also know urdu though (both read and write) and I know how to read arabic because I used to evening classes at my local mosque where they taught urdu/arabic.

    Yeah been india few years back lol.. It was so annoying how every1 wanted me to say something in English, wherever I go they just say one thing "say something to me in English" and then I feel all thier eyes on me lol, and then they try replying back in English and they didn't even make sense if I tell them to repeat it they ask if I'm sure im from London :eek: So then I was like you know what your English is way too advanced for me lets stick to Gujarati :p:

    Yeah I can but half of it is baruchi and half of it is kind of surti.. At home we use to speak surti gujarati and in mosque they use to talk in gujarati and now all the words from both places are jumbled up in my head! And the grammer is S*** Everyone thats baruchi says my gujarati sounds so posh and everyone from back home plus my family says I talk like a baruchi.. So I don't fit in anywhere . What about you.. Do u consider yourself to be surti.. I bet you do :cool: :p:.. How good is your gujarati?
    lol i used to get confused when they used to talk, they talk so bludy fast.....i'd just stand there looking proper lost. did u go to delhi and bombay? indias changed lots since i've last been..

    i speak to my mum in english and she replies back in guji, its gud u can speak guji..most gujis these days can't. yeh i'm surti..but i''m not bothered with all that if ur a guji ur a guji..teru naam hu che?
