In Punjab’s lands where bravery’s song rings clear,
Reside strong women, legends ever near.
Their tales of valor, like rivers flow,
In each stride, history they bestow.

Behold the warrior, Rani of Jhansi’s kin,
Mai Bhago, fierce, with a fearless grin.
Dressed as a man, to battle she rode,
A beacon of courage along history’s road.

Jind Kaur, Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s queen,
With regal strength, she held the scene.
Her spirit fierce, her heart aflame,
In her gaze, Punjab’s pride became.

From the fields of struggle, Mata Gujri arose,
A mother’s strength, like a river that flows.
She nurtured courage in her tender care,
Her legacy, a flame, forever to flare.

Then there’s Noor Inayat Khan, a guiding light,
Her courage shining through the darkest night.
With stealth and skill, she fought the foe,
A beacon of hope in war’s cruel throe.

Women of Punjab, pillars of might,
In history’s tapestry, shining bright.
Their stories weave a colorful tale,
Of strength, resilience, never frail.

So let’s raise a toast to these heroines bold,
Their stories worth more than silver or gold.
In Punjab’s heart, their legacy beams,
Strong Punjabi women, in history’s dreams
