Baisakhi is celebrated with a lot of pomp and show by the Sikh community around the world and especially the ones located in the north Indian agricultural belt. It also holds historical significance for them because on this very day in the year 1699 their tenth Guru, Gobind Singh established theKhalsa and eliminated all the differences between all castes and proclaimed all human beings as equal. And, one can certainly experience that on this day in all the Gurudwaras around the world, where free food is distributed for all. They also celebrate by engaging in a lot of traditional song, dance (bhangra) & feasting and since it’s a spring festival that too in an agricultural community, it sure is one hell of a colourful affair.
