I like this thread, it's useful and informative however I just wanted clarification on what the OP considers Punjab. The geographical area that makes up the Punjab currently, has changed over the years. It has been argued that the area making up Punjab was included in ancient Sapta-Sindu or Panchanada. That would encompass a far greater land area than what is currently defined as Punjab.

Additionally, what is the ethnic and cultural make up of the Punjab? Do we consider only the indeginous peoples or the many Invaders that have settled in the region or even people who claim external decent as Punjabi too? I was thinking specifically of the many invasions beginning with the Greeks, Turks, Pashtuns, Persians and Mongols.

My apologies, I know it is a bit late in the thread but just wanted clarification on two points above.
