Yes, I have heard "diThaa" for the Urdu "dekhaa". Interestingly, there are a group of Punjabi words which have a link with Persian! Well, we should not be surprised because of the Indo-European language connection.
puTh = pusht (back)
kuTh = kusht ( kukRii kuThii e.. [I have] killed a chicken)
muTh= musht = fistful
guTh= gosh (corner)
I think there are one or two more but I can not remember them for the moment.
Qureshpor, thank you for drawing a comparison between Persian and Punjabi here. Very interesting.
Where have you heard ڈٹھا? Is it mainly used by the older generations or is it quite common?
Right, we use the former in my house too.
Thanks for the info on "ditha," again. Very interesting.

Please note that "kachchuu = chakkuu=chaaquu.
Common example of metathesis. I've seen it before in the words کیچھڑ and چھیکڑ.
I've never seen 'dīdā' before. Was the Sikh also from AK? I'll be in Punjab soon, so I'll research this.
