14th April

Baisakhi Festival 2017

Baisakhi commonly known as Vaisakhi is a harvest festival of the farmers that is celebrated majorly in Punjab and some regions of Haryana too. It is one of the important festivals and falls on 13th April every year. It is also considered to be the beginning of the Punjabi New Year as per the Punjabi solar calendar. Another important fact about this festival about this festival is that it is celebrated on 14th April after every 36 years due to some astrological phenomenon that take place when the sun enters into the Mesh Rashi(Aries).

Baisakhi is also celebrated as the birth anniversary of Khalsa that holds a special place in the Sikh religion. It is known as Khalsa Sirjana Divas as the foundation of Khalsa Panth was laid by the Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh in 1699. The spirit of both these festivals can be seen popularly among the Sikhs and farmers. Each year, special celebrations take place at the Anandpur Sahib Gurudwara, Talwandi Sabo and Golden Temple in Amritsar. This year Baisakhi will be celebrated on 14th April with the same enthusiasm and glee.

There is another reason that makes Baisakhi an important festival, i.e. the foundation of Arya Samaj by Swami Dayanand Saraswati on this day in 1875. Since the festival has so many associations with it, it also shows the cultural diversity of the nation. Baisakhi fairs, cultural programs and social gatherings are the common practices that take place on this auspicious day.
