23 Jan Saraswati Puja-Basant Panchami Celebration at KU
Saraswati Puja, also known as Shree Panchami or Basant Panchami, is being celebrated with much religious fervor at Karnavati University today. It is an auspicious day that marks the outset of spring wherein the students pay obeisance to the goddess of knowledge-Maa Saraswati, after the Aarti, dressed in traditional ethnic-wear. The gorgeous idol of Maa Saraswati was unveiled by the priest and the puja started with great reverence. The serene sound of sonorous chanting of mantras filled the verdant KU campus with festivity. Students and Faculty members who all have been fasting from the morning had Prasad together in the noon after the Puja was over. Finally, it was lunch time when everybody dug into the good food.
