Vaisakh comes in the springtime and at the end of the rabi harvest. The “rabi” harvest refers to the harvest of crops grown during the winter that are ready in the spring.

In various parts of India, especially Punjab, Haryana, and West Bengal, Vaisakh is a time to give thanks for the harvest and to pray for a prosperous year to follow. Many also get up very early on Vaisakh to take a bath in a nearby holy river.
