The word "PANJAB" originates from the persian language. PANJAB is the "land of the five rivers". "PANJ" means five and "AB" meaning water. This refers to the five rivers of the PANJAB region. "PUNJAB" is the colonial mispronunciation of the more exact pronunciation of "PANJAB". PANJAB's history is rooted in ancient civilization, through a series of empires and mughal dynasties, to the findings of the SIKH faith in the 15th century by GURU NANAK DEV JI. Our rich history is reflected in the name PANJAB. Therefore, it is for us to continue to use "PANJAB" correctly, to share and REP its true meaning with those arounds us.
