Bagh Baras 2023 will be observed on Thursday, November 9. The festival shares its roots with Vagh Baras, where "Bagh" means "tiger" and "Baras" means "twelfth day." This day is dedicated to the veneration of cows and recognising their significance in agrarian life. In the context of Bagh Baras, the reference to "tiger" is specific to the legend associated with the festival.

According to the folklore, on this day, it is believed that cows, which are crucial for agricultural activities, were threatened by the presence of tigers. People began worshipping tigers to protect the cows from tiger attacks, and this tradition evolved into the Bagh Baras observance. As a part of the celebration, people create colourful rangoli (artistic designs made with coloured powders or flower petals) at their doorsteps to welcome the goddess of wealth, Goddess Lakshmi, and to ward off any potential danger to their livestock and prosperity. Here is a collection of messages saying Happy Bagh Baras 2023.
