I have cautiously preferred community of layyah city for cultural analysis paper because I am zealous to be the part of that community. I have acquaintance with the community of layyah because I am the part of that area .currently I am living in Islamabad because I am doing my post RN Bsc N from PIMS college of nursing I used to visit there every year in my summer vacations during early age of my school and still now. Layyah District (formerly spelled as Leiah) is bounded to the North by Bhakkar District, to the east by Jhang District. The Indus River flows to its Western side across which lies district Dera Ghazi Khan and to the south Muzaffargarh District. People of layyah adoring me since my childhood, due to their humble way of living, dressing, food and particularly I like the language which those people use, known as Punjabi, the major language which is spoken that’s saraiki which is one of the sweetest language in Pakistan. I have adequate knowledge about their cultural aspects. Life is so demanding, we have to achieve so many assignment even we cannot fulfill our own longings. But my Post RN academic requirement fulfill this desire, now we have been given an assignment of scholarly article by Sir Shafique for cultural analysis and I have been given sufficient time to discover about the community to whom I am going to culturally analyze. I have made some struggle to write a cultural analysis paper about the community of layyah. Majority of people in Layyah are native speakers of Saraiki language. Urdu and Punjabi is also understood and spoken. The medium of education is Urdu and English. The district had a population of 1,520,951 of which only 20.47% are urban in 2005.layyah is city of edocation. layyah is a backward area.

Mostly people of my community are poor. They are lading life hand to mouth. The rural villagers of layyah commonly live in houses made of bricks, clay or mud.
