New Delhi: It is that time of the year when the entire nation is soaked in the festive spirit of Basant or Vasant Panchami. Goddess Saraswati is invoked on the day and devotees throng temples to seek her blessings.

Rituals begin from early morning and devotees dressed in their traditional best start their day with prayers to the goddess. Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, arts, music, wisdom and performing arts.

Many followers throng Saraswati temples, play music and chant her name the whole day. It also happens to be the day when parents introduce letters to their children.
