I live in India, and I speak Hindi, Punjabi and English very well. I have also been learning some more languages.
Punjabi is the most prominent language in the Punjab province of India. Today, the people of Punjab have made their home in almost every country in the world. Their vesture has changed with migration, but the love for their mother language, Punjabi, won't leave their hearts. They took Punjabi wherever they went, which is why you can find traces of the Punjabi language anywhere in the world.
