Duppatta is very important part of Punjabi girls. It increases the smartness and proud of the women, but the traditional fashion of Punjabi girl is decreasing in Punjab due to the western culture. Instead
of taking the duppatta on the head, girls/women wear it only around the neck. Duppatta that prove length from two to two and half meter increase the beauty of the girls. Salwaar kameez is incomplete without duppatta. Duppatta not only look nice but I guess it makes the girl look more trendy, if worn correctly and reflects the inner beauty also of the women.
The present Punjabi girls became is now driven due to the glitz of western fashion in Punjab. They are much more confused by different combinations of dresses available in the market. Fasion designers have also show the importance of Duppatta and you might have seen dupatta also being emphasized in some fashion shows. First duppatta was taken on the both shoulders but now itís mere a piece of cloth hanging on one of the shoulder or sometimes around the neck.
Even when many companies are started to focus on the Punjabi culture with Punjabi competition where not only the brain and beauty is put on test but also the way the women dresses is also of much importance.
The song in the movie of late mr raj kapoor. (barsat), ď hawain mein urtha jai��? mera lal duppatta mammal ka��?and duppatta is also mentioned in same other movie. When the bridies wear the duppatta on marriage time. It give more improvement to her beauty.
I wonít say that only Punjabi girls are mad behind the western culture, its vice-versa too and I have seen women in western countries have also started appreciating the punjabi dress. An example of this can be seen in NewYork and California where you can see American girls wearing Punjabi suits and Punjabi dresses. I am not saying that the Punjabi girl should not wear western dresses, the point here is that if at all we are wearing a punjabi dress such as Salwaar Kameez, one should also wear Duppata the way it should be worn with it and should not wear it as an extra accessory, else its better just not to wear it at all. If one does not gives importance to duppatta along with punjabi dress then it becomes only a beautiful part of exhibition.
