India Port Aan De Amstel
It’s that time of the year when cultures and countries across the world celebrate the onset of spring celebrating new harvests, new years and religious celebrations.
We invite you to witness the grandeur of one such celebration from a region of India. Baisakhi/Vaisakhi celebrated with great fervour in Hindu-sikh communities in punjab marks important events in the history of this region. Vaisakhi is significant as the day of the founding of Sikh community, called khalsa. Farmers of the region also celebrate vaisakhi to thank god for a plentiful harvest and pray for a good harvest in the coming year.
Throughout the state of Punjab, people celebrate vaisakhi by visiting gurudwaras to offer prayers, vaisakhi melas are held in the villages with music, food and dance.
