Adventures of Harry Puttar...

In a land far far away...errrrr...I mean Ludhiana, there was a secretive non-wizard-believing world which for many years had made people laugh. It was in this world there lived a boy named, Harry Puttar. This is a story of him and his Mom Jaswinder, his dad Gurpal, his masi Sukhwinder, his sister Baljit (or Billo as she was known among galli ke ladke) and his dog Hartej (also known as Harry in his non-wizard-believing-dog-world).

Jaswinder Puttar

Harry Puttar (the boy not the dog) had a split personality that switched between a skateboard wielding dude to a bhangra dud.


It was only when he once combined these two persona and tried to do bhangra while skateboarding, did he got a lightning bolt-shaped scar on his forehead (which cannot be seen in his pictures because of his turban or patka). It was then that his parents came to know about his split personality (with a bit of irony) and decided to send him to a residence which according to them would help Harry choose a better of the two personalities. The school was called....ummmm...ofcourse, Guru Harkrishan Public School (or Ghapcho as non-Ghapchoites call it) in Dilli.


Gurpal Puttar

The curriculum in the school among other things included ladki-taadna (eyeing girls, for non-Delhites). The idea was simple, guys from the school will sit near the canteen and look at girls. If one guy likes a girl he sees, he will raise the hand and tell other guys that she is their "bhabhi" (or sis in law). Other guys will now not be allowed to pass comments on that girl and always refer to her as their bhabhi. In this manner all the girls would be somebody's bhabhi.

Baljit Puttar (urf Billo urf someone's bhabhi...but Harry doesn't know about it)

It is in this world that Harry Puttar will grow where he would learn that it is okay to make fun of oneself but its not okay when the whole community is stereotyped as someone that could be made fun of. He would learn that discipline, courage and hard work are reasons why people in his non-wizard-believing world has been so successful all over (even though he may have learned that by talking to the girl he randomly told everyone is their bhabhi).

But one thing he will never understand is that why is there is big scar on Hartej's pointy tail.

Coming Up Soon: Adventures of Hartej Pootar

Sukhwinder Masi (she has no role in this adventure but no punju home is complete without a masi, so she is here on kahaani ke demand)
