    I had a chance to do a photo session with folk artists from Punjab on the eve of Visakhi festival in a Punjabi village where I captured this moment.

    They are standing right in the middle of a wheat farm as they were about to perform 'Bhangra', the famous folk dance from the state of Punjab.

    'Visakhi' is the festival of the first harvest of the year right after the winter season. It is widely celebrated as traditional harvest festival in many northern states of India, such as Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal.

    As a tradition and as a joyous relief from the hard work they put in for harvesting, farmers perform 'Bhangra' to celebrate the harvesting season. Farmers also visit 'Gurdwara' or Sikh place of worship to thank the Almighty on the 'Visakhi' day.

    'Visakhi' will be celebrated on 14 April in the state of Punjab.

      Vishaki was celebrated here in Fresno, CA. yesterday. I was unable to make it this year as I was at the Cambodian New Year celebration also held yesterday. From the pictures I saw in the newspaper here, I see I missed some great photo ops.
