Basant Panchami is celebrated in India to mark the beginning of the spring season. In the Hindi language, “Basant” means spring and “Panchami” means the fifth day. This day is also celebrated as the birthday of the Hindu Deity, Goddess Saraswati. She is the goddess of Knowledge and wisdom. On this auspicious day, Adda247 wishes you a life filled with all the warmth and vibrance of the coming spring season. We also wish that may Goddess Saraswati bestow you with knowledge and wisdom.
In many parts of India, Saraswati Puja is celebrated with much vigour and devotion on Basant Panchami. It is believed that Goddess Saraswati was born or emanated on the fifth day of shukla paksha (waxing moon) of the month of Magh (according to the Hindu Calendar). Thus, people across India celebrate this by offering prayers to Goddess Saraswati. As Goddess Saraswati is the Goddess of wisdom and knowledge, thus she is much revered by the students. Students of different ages celebrate this day with dedication, devotion and whole-heartedly.
Among many things, the yellow colour is highly associated with this day. People offer yellow flowers to Goddess Saraswati and she is dressed in yellow attire. Yellow coloured food is prepared as “Bhog” and distributed among the devotees. People dress up in yellow attire as well to celebrate the day. In many parts of India, a ritual known as Vidya Arambham or Hathe Khori is observed. In this ritual, young kids are made to write on a piece of paper or slate for the first time. This ritual marks the beginning of their journey towards the attainment of knowledge and enlightenment.
Thus, it is a special day for the students or teaching aspirants across the country. It is the day to offer their prays to the Deity of Knowledge, wisdom, and enlightenment to seek her blessing in form of intelligence, cognizance and awareness. We hope teaching aspirant will achieve their goal of attaining knowledge, understanding and success. We know how many aspiring candidates strive hard to succeed in their respective examinations. Thus, we wish this day will bring a fresh flair of motivation and revived spirits to strive hard to achieve their goals.
