Baisakhi essay

Baisakhi is the major festival of Sikhs. For the Sikhs it is not only a festival of harvest but also marks the birth of Sikh brotherhood and Sikh unity. It was on this day in 1699 that the last Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh organised the Sikhs into Khalsa or the pure ones.

Baisakhi is one such festival that is celebrated for different reasons by different people. For the farmers, it is the first day of the Baisakh season which is that time of the year when all their hard work pays off.

People in Punjab and various other parts of the country dress up in their folk attires to rejoice the celebration. In Punjab, people are seen indulging in Bhangra and Gidda (the folk dances of Punjab) to celebrate the day. Baisakhi fairs are held and processions are held in different parts of the country to celebrate the occasion.
