In love with the land of Punjab, his connectivity towards his birthplace is clearly expressed through his famous songs like Jee Aayan Nu, Babul Meri Guddiyan, Mai Wari, Karke Desh Began, Jag Jeondeyan de mele, Mawan-Mawan and more. Through such songs, not only he but also his fans remained connected to the archival place, Punjab. Mann has recently released his song 'Kangan', which received the good response. But, a song like this seems very rare in present. Talking about the current scenario of Punjab music industry, he shared, "Unfortunately, today, musicians pay more attention to the production of the song than on the melody and lyrics. This has, in turn, diminished the emotional appeal that Punjabi music had." [caption id="attachment_32993" align="alignnone" width="960"] Harbhajan Mann sharing his words on being honoured
