Great information. Thank you for sharing so much and you have forgotten about lassi, which is synonymous to Punjabis. And how can you fail to remember Makke ki roti and sarson da sag, specialties of Punjabi people.

Yes, Baisakhi is completely a festival of harvest. It is also celebrated in other parts of India like Bihu in Assam, Naba Varsha in Bengal, Vishu in Kerela and in many states with different names. And you cannot forget the tradition – dances, dresses, songs and specific cuisine.

I liked your article. I am away from my hometown and really miss the pomp and show of Baisakhi festival. We used to wear new and colourful clothes and enjoyed dancing and eating. The food used to be so delicious and I cannot forget the sweets and thank you for sharing so much information about the history also.
