BIRMINGHAM WHERE EVERY 5TH PERSON IS PUNJABI

BIRMINGHAM WHERE EVERY 5TH PERSON IS PUNJABI
Birmingham UK, is the mother city of Industrial Revolution.

After a great human loss in the World War I & II Birmingham needed work force it is therefore a large number of Punjabi youth was attracted to it. About 40% population of the Birmingham is migrant labour which settled here. Punjabis constitute about 20% of the population: 15% Pakistanis and 4% East Punjabis. 
I would have missed photography of Birmingham but for my miserly nature. Among my friends I am known as "Penny wise pound foolish". 
It so happened that my interview with Sikh Channel TV was fixed for 8 AM on Aug. 19. I reached Birmingham station at 7-45 and requested the channel to send some car to take me to studio but they had no spare car and I then instead of taking taxi (for my saving nature) started walking.
Though I had road map in my hands yet a complex round about confused me finally rendering me late for interview. 
The TV Channel were kind enough to give me an alternate date on Aug. 22 and thus I stayed on in Birmingham and enjoyed the beauty of mother of Industrial revolution.
