Description

Vasant Panchami Celebration (Feb 16th 2021, Tuesday):

Vasant Panchami is a famous festival that marks the end of the winter season and ushers in the springtime. The celebration of the Vasant Panchami is centered on the Hindu goddess Sarasvati. Sarasvati is the goddess of wisdom. She embodies the different facets of learning such as the sciences, arts, crafts and skills. She is said to be calm and collected. She is often pictured seated on a lotus or a peacock, wearing a white dress.

People dress in yellow and they offer yellow flowers to others and to the gods and goddesses. During the Vasant Panchami festival, India’s crop fields are filled with the color yellow, as the yellow mustard flowers bloom at this time of the year. Pens, notebooks, and pencils are placed near the goddess Devi's feet to be blessed before they are used by students.
