Baisakhi – नववर्षोत्सव 2078
Fortunately after a very long Vaisakhi | Baisakhi falling on the very same day it was started i.e Vaisakh Sankranti (Vishakha Nakshatra), Chaitra Shukla Pratipda, Vikamvi Samvat
Word Vaisakhi or Baisakhi is Apbhramsa (corruption) of word Vaishākhī (वैशाखी), derived from the name of Sanatan Vedic month of Vaishakha.
There is no distinction between sounds ‘sha’ (श) & ‘sa’ (स) and between ‘va’ (व) & ‘ba’ (ब) in Prakrit & Apbhramsa.
Hence the name, Vaisakhi or Baisakhi. In tonal languages like Bengali, it is pronounced as ‘Boishakhi’.
Vaisakhi which is observed on Sankranti of Vaisakh (Vaishakh) month literally means ‘related to Vaisakh month’, which in turn is derived from the name of a Nakshatra known as Vishakha.
In Punjabi, the spelling varies with region. In Punjab region, Vaisakhi is common, but in the Doabi and Malwai dialects, speakers often substitute a B for a V. The spelling used depends on the dialect of the writer.
It’s a myth to say that it was always on April 13.
According to Julian calendar, Baisakhi fell on March 29 in 1469.
After revision of Julian | Gregorian calender during British Era, it was celebrated in 11th of April for very long.
The first time that Baisakhi was celebrated on April 13 was in 1902
