Pabandiyan song by Ajaypal Maan has exceptionally expressed the message that daughters are our pride but are not given their deserved rights. Most of the Indians tend to bind their daughters in numerous restrictions but daughters always make efforts to make their parents proud. Yes, exceptions are always there! The campaign ‘Beti Bachao, Bati Padhao’ has been beautifully incorporated in the latest Punjabi song Pabandiyan.
Lyrics of the song Pabandiyan has been penned down by Jaggi Sanghera and Ajaypal Maan’s voice has added the much required soul to the song Pabandiyan. Other issues that have been portrayed in the song are abolishing dowry and eliminating getting married without parental consent. The music of the song has been composed nicely and touches the chords of the heart directly.

Pabandiyan song by Ajaypal Maan opens with a social issue of daughter’s marriage. In the starting of the song the mother proposes a suitable match for her daughter but the father rejects the match saying he wants to marry her daughter in a landlord’s or bigger family.
