Abstract:

Bhisham Sahni is a luminary Punjabi figure to rule the Hindi literary domain for more than four long decades. A few stories by him which enriched the Hindi literary canon epitomise with a proud sensibility, the specificity and beauty of Punjabi language and tradition. The literary canvas of Bhisham Sahni is vast hence three stories, Beero, Dholak and Yaadein are chosesn from his distinct productions to depict the author’s fondness for this mellifluous language and flamboyant culture via this research paper. He has deliberately designed the storyline principally to accentuate the Punjabi language, culture and traditions.  His plots have settings primarily in villages, towns and cities of Punjab. Delhi has many recurrences in his compositions. Born and brought up in unpartitioned Punjab, he witnessed the unadulterated Punjabi culture and values of the region which to a notable extent, have faded away from the present Punjab, particularly affected by the caustic wave of westernisation and modernisation. Punjabi culture signifies peculiarities in every walk of life, ethics, family values, traditions, rituals, language, cuisine and weddings. Folk songs are frequently introduced by the author to surge the emotions relevant to situations. His stories in the phase of development don’t escape from the realities of life which Bhisham Sahni as a Marxist has dextrously captured and delineated by dint of his creativity.

Key words: Punjabi culture, traditions, values, wedding rituals, partition
