Trip to Southall

Yesterday I went to a place in western London called Southall. Well this is different than all the places in London because "YOU CAN HEAR CAR HORNS HERE!!!" The simple reason is the huge Punjabi population here.
Went here to meet Tajinder Kang. If you get down at Southall Station you can find everything written in Punjabi and English here. All the instructions are in Punjabi.

The WELCOME TO SOUTHALL board here says JEE AAYA NU ( means welcome in Punjabi). Is this part of London??

Yesterday there was one mela types something happening there, and I took these photos. Everything and everyone was on the streets. I havent seen anything like this anywhere in London. This was not London I sould say. You could find everything here, which you can find in any Indian city. People shouting: "Oye kya kar raha hai?? Hat ja oye." Hawkers selling mangoes : "Bibiji aam leke jao bibiji." Hawkers selling cheap DVDs: "Original DVD of Hindi Movies, Original DVDs of Hindi movies."
The scene on the road here. (Bhangra Paao ji )

Some festival in Southall. Full Volume music is readily available. There is another Punjabi singers nite in Southall on 12th August, I might go to attend that. My "music ke guru ji" is coming there "Jazzy B".
Oye hooye maaza aagaya oye, maaza aagaya.

Just see this : Bank of Baroda in Southall.

State Bank of India in Southall

Me and Kang at the Gurudwara in Southhall. We didnt have langar there but I am planning to go back to Southall soon with some friends from Walthmstow and then might go for langar also.
The gurudwara was very beatiful from inside and yesterday there were kids who were doing kirtan (bhajan in Gurubani, singing hyms of Guru Granth Sahibji). Gurudwara at Southall. Jo Bole So Nihal. Sat Sri Akal.

It was fun and I also went to a pub there called Gallasi Junction, total punjabi culture there. Its not London I should say. Buuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!
