The Panjeta, also known as Panjuttha, are Jatt people of Northern India. They have a distinct cultural history that can be historically traced back to the ancient times. Panjeta's were from Central Asia near the country that is now called Kazakhstan. After the Panjeta ruled for over one thousand years, they split into two groups. At that time, half of the Panjeta clan moved to countries that is now known as Bosnia and Herzegovina (refer to famous director Lejla Panjeta, and the rest moved to northern parts of India. Some had moved to Western countries for business and commercial reasons. Few Panjetas reside in India whereas large numbers reside in Bosnia and Herzegovina areas.
