The Punjabi, Eastern people of India should not be confused with Punjabi, Western or the Punjabi, Pahari-Potwari people. The distinguishing factor between these three Punjabi peoples is their religious adherence.

The Punjabi Eastern adhere to Sikhism. Most of the Sikhs, across the world are known as Punjabi Sikhs. Punjabi is the language spoken and practised by the Sikhs in India. a monotheistic religion that originated in the 15th century based on the revelation of Guru Nanak. The term "Sikh" has its origin in the Sanskrit words meaning a disciple, or a student.

Generally, the Punjabi culture does not value personal space. Therefore, during conversation they may talk very closely to a person. It is essential that one not back away as this is see as a sign of rudeness and disrespect.
