True - but they speak the same Punjabi I guess, no?Yes, but mostly it is the "other" Punjab.
Politics is corrupt everywhere - just a matter of degrees...Californians don’t elect and worship corrupt families anymore so maybe that will rub off on its sister.
Well not maybe everywhere. California has many distinct weather regions and even "Koppen Microclimates classification" regions. It is the most weather-diverse state in US.IMHO Baluchistan should be the sister province of California same land scape and weather.
Not a chance!Californians don’t elect and worship corrupt families anymore so maybe that will rub off on its sister.
The dialects are quite different, but a conversation is still possible.True - but they speak the same Punjabi I guess, no?
Same like East Bengal and West Bengal?

California does not have a "parliament " only a state legislaturePunjab and California Officially Declared Sister Provinces
In a landmark achievement for Pakistan and the United States of America, the California State parliament has approved a new bill declaring Punjab and California as ‘Sister Provinces’.
As per reports, the members of the House had discussed the one-of-a-kind resolution for declaring a development-based relationship between California and Punjab, and quite interestingly, no member opposed the bill when moved for a vote.
The bill was approved during an official visit of the Governor of Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, who also met members of the California parliament.
He mentioned in a statement that he was pleased “to meet Rep. Jim Costa and discuss ways of further cooperation between Punjab and California” for agriculture and technology-related projects.
In principle, a sister relationship is a formal declaration of friendship between two regions, states, or nations. In that regard, the State of California currently has 28 officially recognized Sister-State relationships around the globe, where developments pertaining to social, economic, educational, and cultural exchanges are facilitated on a regular basis.
