Sangrur invites you to celebrate the “SANGRUR BASANT FESTIVAL 2020” from 28th to 31st January 2020 with us in Sangrur, Punjab. This is the time of the year that nature is in bloom and it marks the arrival of spring when new leaves and flowers appear and Punjab is dotted with mustard yellow fields welcoming all to enjoy this spectacle of nature.
This is also the time of the year when the Raga of Basant is sung and the message of the divine is to uplift your soul and merge with nature so that we can be enlightened and uplifted in our inner quest.
Basant Panchami is a Hindu festival celebrating Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, music, culture and art. It is celebrated every year on the fifth day (Panchami) of the Magh month according to the Hindu Calendar.
Maharaja Ranjit Singh introduced Basant as a festival of Kites and everyone wore yellow clothes to emulate the mustard fields in bloom.
