Yesterday, I met a friend, working as an operations manager in a very famous organization and his ringtone Naye zamane ki Laila hoon main, Teri pungi baja ke rahungisuddenly caught my attention to PUNGI.

Word count of Pungi and Meri Jaan matches; needless to say what does it mean for attracting youngsters.
