Punjabi culture is a multi-faceted. We are multi-dimensional people not a one-dimensional people.
Bhangra is far too emphasised, it makes me cringe if I am watching the BBC and there something remotely Asian on and then there is some bhangra track on in the background.
It makes us look one-dimensional.
However the reality is we have percussion instruments in our culture and we have rythm and footwork.
Dance and music is a form of human expression. It is something in our DNA.
But there is far more to us. One part of the culture is over-promoted.
There is poetry, there is art, there is other literature. There are other forms of music. We like other instruments other than dhol and tabla,we have stringed instrument, horned instruments, keyboard instruments.
But isnt that just young people being young. Many young people do that regardless of race/ethnicity. It's just something young people do. I personally dont see anything wrong with that. Most guys around my age do that regardless of race/ethnicity
Oh yes, I remember. There's nothing really to be disputed about that, not that I'd want to.
I'm just concerned about the precedences being set at the moment. Some things can't be rolled back when they've been exposed to air. The mistakes of a few shouldn't be meted out on the blameless majority.
