Sights n Sounds of Vaisakhi...

Happy Vaisakhi Everyone!!

Vaisakhi is the Punjabi new year and the day khalsa (the pure sikh) was founded by the last Guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh jee. In a way, the religion of Sikhism was formalized into a separate religion on this day. On this auspicious day, I have completed my second degree. Here are some sights n sounds of the beautiful festival of Vaisakhi from around the world...

Prosperity to everyone on the first day of harvest

And yes... Happy Vaisakhi..!!

Also, as per hindu calender, from day after tomm.. Chaitra maas ends.. nd starts Vaishaakh maas.. also called Grishm ritu. And the third bright day of ths month is called Akshay Tritiya.. which is an auspicious day.. of which.. every muhurat is shubh... also as per maharashtrians..an auspisious day to buy gold.. It is believed that whatever is bought on this day, will remain forever.Hmm.. so time to invest in Gold.. :)
