DID YOU KNOW
Vaisakhi or Baisakhi is a Sikh holiday celebrating the day the religion took on its current form in 1699. The holiday normally includes parades and special services in Sikh communities around the world. This year, many practitioners are relegated to home worship and livestreaming, however scholars have emphasized how these reduced celebrations in a time of global crisis are also a way to embrace the Sikh commitment to the welfare of all people.
