Baisakhi, also known as Vaisakhi, is a festival that marks the beginning of the Sikh New Year and has great historical and religious significance for Sikhs. It commemorates the formation of Khalsa Panth by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, in 1699. On this day, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji initiated the first five members of the Khalsa, a special group of initiated Sikhs who are committed to living their lives based on the principles of Sikhism. Apart from its religious significance, Baisakhi is also an agricultural festival that marks the harvest of the winter crops and the beginning of the new agricultural season. In many parts of India, people celebrate Baisakhi with music, dance, and feasting. It is a time of joy and happiness, and people dress up in colorful traditional clothes and participate in processions and fairs.
