    Hello ILites,

    Today is Basanth Panchami. It is Hindu religious, spring festival celebrated every year of the Indian month Magh the first day of spring season.
    It is very auspicious day by celebrating the goddess Saraswathi birthday, the goddess of knowledge, music and art. The colour yellow plays and important role in this festival. Goddess saraswathi is dressed in yellow garments and worshipped in kolkata.
