Baisakhi is a festival that marks the harvest of rabi crops. Apart from Punjab, the people of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana also observe the festival with a lot of fervor.
During this festival, devotees show gratitude to gods for granting them a good harvest. It is the day on which Guru Gobind Singh (the tenth Sikh guru) established the Khalsa Panth.
Other regions in India will be celebrating the harvest festival as Pohela Boishakh in Kolkata, Puthandu in Tamil Nadu, Rongali Bihu in Assam and Vishu in Kerala.
