Baisakhi festival derives its name from the month of Vaisakha (April-May) in which this day occurs. It invariably falls on the 13th of April every year,though once in 36 years it occurs on April 14th. It is a north Indian festival, but it is observed in Punjab with special enthusiasm and fervour. It was on this day that the last Guru Gobind Singh eliminated the differences of high and low and established that all human beings were equal.

In Kerala the festival is called Vishu, In Assam, the festival is called Bohag Bihu, and the community organizes massive feasts, music, and dancing. The pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Badrinath, in the Himalayas, also commences from this day.



Ramanavami or the birthday of Lord Rama is a major Hindu festival celebrated all over the country by devout Hindus both Vaishnavas and Shaivas. Rama, the seventh incarnation of Vishnu was born on the ninth day of the bright half of the Chaitra (March - April) in Ayodhya, in the Treta Yuga, the Second Age. The Ramanavami festival offers to us all an opportunity to imbibe at least some of the ideas and spirit enshrined in the ways of Rama. On this great day Lord Rama is prayed and worshipped, and it is the surest means to be able to follow in his ideals.

Ramanavami is also celebrated as the Vasanta Navratra and the celebration starts from the first lunar day of the bright fortnight of Chaitra and last upto Ramanavami. On Ashtami Durga is worshipped. If you wish to achieve anything worthwhile, seek the Mother's grace and it is a proper occasion. Ram and Devi, both symbolize the victory of good over the evil.
