It also marks the beginning of the harvest season. The farmers feel veryhapopy on seeing waving ripe crops in their fields.

            Last year, I went to see the Baisakhi fair with a few friends. We got up early in the morning. We got ready to go to the fair. Our way lay through the fields. They were full of ripe crops. As far as the eye could see, there was nothing but yellow grain. In fifteen minutes we reached the place where the fair was to be held.

            Stalls had been set up there. The stall owners sold eatables of different varieties. They were having a roaring business, children were crowding in stall selling toys. On one side, merry go round were whiling.

            At another place jugglers were showing their feats. Some men bathed in the river. The Mahabir Dal volunteers had made separate arrangements for men and women. Some villagers were singing folk songs. At two places the Bhangra dance was being performed. Some young men were taking part in the kite flying competition. We went round the fair area twice. Then we had a bath in the canal flowing nearby. We then ate fruit and sweets. We also ate pakoras. We met some more friends in the fair.
