Here is your short paragraph on Baisakhi day:
This is the first day of the ‘Vikrama’ calendar of the Hindus and is about fifty years older than the Christian era.
It is observed in several parts of India as New Years Day, especially in north India. For Hindus, Baisakhi is a religious festival when people bathe in rivers and go to temples to worship.
The river Ganga is believed to have descended on earth on this day. This Hindu solar New Year is observed virtually all over northern India and in Tamil Nadu. In Punjab, for the Sikh community, this day has special significance.
On Baisakhi day, the farmers of Punjab start harvesting with great jubilation. The vigorous Bhangra dance is a common sight in the villages. The Indian New Year’s Day is not only the harvesting festival, but also the day remembered for the founding of the Khalsa order by Guru Gobind Singh, in 1689.
In the capital, Baisakhi festival is celebrated at the historical shrine by banks of Jamuna. It is at this place Guru Nanak met Majnu, a Muslim Fakir, who lived a lonely life of prayers and penitence. Guru Hargobind and Ram Rai also stayed at the Majnu-ka-Tilla Gurudwara.
