The first modern Punjabi dictionary was produced in the mid-19th century by Christian missionaries based in Ludhiana. Two Nobel Prize winners have been Punjabis: Professor Hargobind Khorana from India and Professor Abdus Salam from Pakistan. Three Indian prime ministers -- Gulzari Lal Nanda, Inder Kumar Gujral and Dr Manmohan Singh -- can be classified as bona fide Punjabis, while the mother of Jawarhal Lal Nehru was not only a Punjabi but from Lahore.
In 1941, Punjabi and its dialects were the languages of 56 per cent of the population of Jammu and Kashmir.
