This is a photo of Punjabi Khaat. But these types of Khaat is  found entire in India.  They are vanishing in modern time. But still you can find the Punjabi Classic Khaats in Punjabi villages and in fields , young lands in the day time under the shadow of trees sitting in group and playing cards. They are made with linen as we as Jute fibre. In Punjabi khaat the beds are generally made with wood while the side arms are made with bamboos. Its not so comfortable as per my try, but sometime it feels good. Sleeping in Khaat under the moon in summer days. I have got few memories.

This dance is not only famous in Punjabi and India but globally these days you can see stage performances of Punjabi Bhangra dance.
