Something about
Baisakhi
Vaisakhi, also known as Baisakhi, Vaishakhi, or Vasakhi is a Punjabi festival, which is a harvest festival of the Punjab region and the Punjabi new year falling on the first day of Vaisakh which is the first solar month of the Punjabi calendar. Vaisakhi also refers to the Khalsa Sirjana Divas which marks the birth of the Khalsa in the year 1699 and the Mesha Sankranti festival. It is celebrated on either 13 or 14 April. The day represents the Spring equinox which normally occurs around 21 March but the day is marked on 13 April due to changes in the calendar.
The festival is especially important for the Sikh community as it marks the establishment of the Khalsa which is also termed Khalsa Sirjana Divas and falls on the first day of Vaisakh which is the second month of the Nanakshahi calendar. According to the Nanakshahi calendar, Khalsa Sirjana divas is marked on 14 April. In other cases, Vaisakhi falls on 13 April. Mesha Sankranti (the first of the solar month of Vaisakha) marks the start of the solar new year across many parts of the sub-continent using luni-solar calendars and is important for Hindus. In regions where the regional new year begins with the start of the lunar new year, Mesha Sankranti is also considered to be an important day. The festival also coincides with other new year festivals celebrated on the first day of Vaisakh 13 April, in some regions of the Indian Subcontinent such as Pohela Boishakh the Bengali New Year, Bohag Bihu of Assam or Puthandu, the Tamil New Year.
