Baisakhi or Vaisakhi, which falls on April 13 every year marks the beginning of the Hindu Solar New Year. On this day, farmers thanks the almighty for the harvest and prays for future prosperity. The festival marks the Sikh New Year and commemorates the formation of the Khalsa pant or the warrior group of Sikhs by Guru Gobind Singh and the abolition of the practice of Gurus in Sikhism.

Baisakhi also has a special significance as it marks the execution of Guru Tegh Bahadur at the hands of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb after he declined to convert to Islam. Guru Gobind Singh who was his son was made the Guru after this horrendous incident and raised an army of Sikhs who challenged the Mughals and stood for religious freedom in 25th century Punjab. Guru Gobind Singh chose five Khalsa or panj pyare and subsequently said that they will be responsible for upholding the religious freedom of the people and Guru Granth Sahib will be considered for eternal guidance instead of any Guru from thereon. It was in 1699 that Guru Gobind Singh brought this reformation and change in Sikhism.
