Vasant Panchmi marks goodbye to winters and welcomes the vibrant Spring season. Lovely festival of Vasant Panchmi symbolises liveliness….brilliance of nature….when flowers are in full bloom spreading joy and happiness. This is the day to worship Goddess of wisdom, intellect and learning… Goddess Saraswati. On the auspicious day of Vasant Panchmi, I pray to Goddess Saraswati that the desire of learning continues to simmer in all of us throughout our lives. May we keep enriching ourself by learning something or the other, irrespective of our age. Let us offer Meethe chawal (sweet rice) to Maa Saraswati and seek her Blessings.
