Nachda Punjab

The Bhangra beats set the pace for a lively show that includes live reports by Pali Raipuria from Punjab. There's a weekly topic for the older population with little English, and we cover current events, community news, government policies all spiced with requests and dedications, plus recent albums of folk singers.
