Baisakhi Festival: Vibrant Spirit and Jubilation in India
Almost all Indian festivals have their origins in farming as India is a land of farmers. Baisakhi or Vaisakhi is a harvest festival celebrated in North India, predominantly in Punjab. During Baisakhi festival, people in Punjab visit Gurudwara and dance with exhilaration; everyone join the celebration and perform the trademark dance of Punjab � Bhangra.
Gifts are part and parcel of any Indian festival and Baisakhi is no exception; people exchange Baisakhi gifts with each other. If some of their loved ones are living abroad, they send Baisakhi gifts to India. Women cook sweets at home and with gifts, they offer sweets to their guests and loved ones.
According to history, Baisakhi marks the foundation of Khalsa � a sect that was initiated by tenth Guru Gobind Singhji in 1699. For Hindus, it�s a beginning of a New Year; a myth goes that on this day, Holy River Ganga descended on earth from heaven and therefore, Hindus celebrate this day by bathing in Ganga.
