There are successful Punjabis in almost all professions and businesses, including those who have won Noble Prizes and are in the halls of fame in many fields. There are also many Punjabis and others who have performed excellent community services. The accomplishments of such Punjabis will help inspire the younger Punjabis and help them grow up with pride in their culture and heritage.
