Abstract
The article begins with the discussion on social and societal background of the Punjab besides interaction of religions in this regard. Whereas the second part of the article deals with the Punjabi Sufi poetry and culture of the Punjab. Among great Punjabi poets include Baba Farid, Shah Hussain, Nosha Ghanj Bukhsh, Bullay Shah, Waris Shah, Hashim Shah,Mian Muhammad Bukhsh and Khawja Ghulam Farid. Cultural diversity and love for humanity are vividly perceived through the poetic renditions of all these poets. Moreover, a comprehensive definition of culture has been presented side by side shedding light on impact of alien culture which got inroad into the Punjab from different sources.
