punjabi being our mother tongue is missing from punjab especially from urban areas, the attitude towards punjabi is changing. new generation even does not know that punjabi is our mother tongue. according to peoples now a days punjabi speaking person is having low standard and pendu (this is practically seen by me) families stop their infants not to learn and speak punjabi. hindi is overtaking punjabi at very fast speed. even sikhs now stop their children from speaking punjabi. some pretend that they dont know the language this is the case with my many such friends. language is the weapon that bind the people of the community or the state and represent their state outside punjab.
