aLikewise, Punjabis also relocated to Hong Kong and settled themselves well here. However, Hong Kong Punjabis were lagging behind in organizing cultural events exclusively for ladies. Thus, for the last seven years, Satrang Entertainers & Buttar Associates have been taking it to their shoulders to organize Teeyan for ladies only. Following for a few years, Teeyan were also hosted by them in Tsim Sha Tsui. The fame of “Awaaz Punjab,” Neha Sharma, mainly came to entertain Punjabi ladies with her melodious and mesmerizing voice. The particular thing in this event was that not only Punjabi ladies participate with enthusiasm but also Chinese & Pakistani ladies. The highlight of the program this time around was the performance of Giddha by a young Australian girl. It
is taken as a proud achievement in its own to introduce the Giddha culture of Punjabis to other communities. All in all, ladies enjoyed it thoroughly throughout the day.
