Saraswati Puja is celebrated on Jan. 28, 2012. This festival
glorifies the Goddess Saraswati, patron of knowledge, music

festival of Basant Panchami, which signifies the
end of the winter season, and the beginning of spring.
Yellow is the predominant color of Basant Panchami as flowers bloom and the harvest ripens. Men and women also wear yellow clothing on this day, making it a very colorful day. A kite festival is held each year to welcome the spring. Young boys and girls participate enthusiastically, making the sky a colorful sight.
