Saraswati Puja 2012
Every year Saraswati Puja is celebrated throughout the country on Vasant Panchami to worship the Goddess Saraswati, the patron of music, culture and learning.
Many educational institutions observe this tradition by setting up a clay idol of the Goddess Saraswati for the worship. Colorful pandals (temporary structures to house an event) are also put up where devotees throng to offer their prayers and to pay their obeisance.
