Baisakhi

Essay No. 01

Baisakhi is a famous festival of India which is celebrated with great fervour every year on or around 13th April, especially in Punjab.

The rabi crop, which includes wheat and gram in particular, is sown at the start of the winter season. It ripens towards, the end of March and is harvested in April.

The harvesting of the rabi crop, wheat in particular, is started formally on the day of Baisakhi with great pomp and show.

On this day, the farmers rejoice and start dancing in joy. The thrill music of the drum with the celebrated Punjab folk dance, Bhangra, can be heard in every corner of Punjab and Haryana on this day.

The houses look spick and span and the people, especially the villagers put on neat and clean colourful clothes. Sweet pudding is prepared in houses in which grains of wheat from the new crop are mixed as a ritual.

The produce of wheat is sent to the grain markets and the coffers of the farmers start filling up with money. It is the season when the farmers, flushing with money, make purchases, hold domestic functions and arrange and solemnize marriages of their sons and daughters.

Baisakhi and Bhangra are virtually inseparable. The Bhangra is marked by the beating of drums, recitation of “bolis”, physical gyration and the exuberant reverberating sound of ‘Balk Balk”. This is, however, unfortunate that now the filmy overtones have penetrated even this most solemn folk song and made it a somewhat mechanical and gaudy affair.

There is another sad aspect to the day. It is remembrance of the martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh massacre in Amritsar which took place on this day in 1919. That makes the nation sad but proud and determined to safeguard freedom at any cost.
