STORY NO. 1
There was once a Raja called
Basant who ruled over the ancient
land of Indus. One year there was
drought, so he cancelled all the
taxes on his people and his people,
thereafter, celebrated ‘Basant
Panchmi’ every year at the arrival
of Spring.
STORY 2
• Basant itself is a north-Punjab celebration of
Spring. The Basant festival was the a five day
festival celebrated by local farmers during the
Magh month [Jan-Feb] when the fields are
awash in mustard-seed flowers and consisted of
people dressing in mustard-color clothes and
having a good time. This festival can be traced at
least since the mid thirteenth century.
During Mughal period
• By the Mughal period, Basant was a popular
festival at the major Sufi shrines.
• A typical celebration during the Mughal period
would entail the devotees of the Sufi traveling
to the shrine on Basant clad in yellow to offer
garlands of yellow flowers and sing qawwalis
all night long.
• Khusrau, the famous sufi-poet of the thirteenth
century, even composed verses on Basant:
MOST AUTHENTIC ONE
• Chinese use kites in nearly 200 BC for the
purpose of signaling and for sending
messages over a medium distance
• Slowly it spread to other countries and they
take it as recreational activity.
