Definition

A reverent term for anyone from the land of Five rivers (Punjab), most typically used by and for our big-hearted, hard-working, turban-sporting brothers - the Sardars. Not to be confused with Hindi word for mischievous, this courteous phrase implies almost the opposite of mischief. Paaji is the Punjabi equivalent of Uncleji or Bhaisaab in other parts of the Northern plains.

Usage

Ram: O Paaji, how is the match?
Mr.Singh: Oye puttar, Bhajji is on a hattrick.
Ram: Balle balle
