The festival of harvest, Vasant Panchami or Saraswati Puja marks the beginning of the Spring season in India. The Spring season brings with itself the lost lustre of green in the trees and replaces the chills to warm and pleasant winds.
Vasant Panchami celebrations are incomplete without worshipping Goddess Saraswati, the deity of music, knowledge, technology, science and arts. The festival is considered as an auspicious occasion for students as they ask for the goddesses’ blessing to help them gain the best of knowledge and prosper in every field of their interest.
