Saraswati Puja: Worshipping Goddess of Knowledge

Saraswati Puja: Worshipping Goddess of Knowledge

Considerable lot of us probably began our journey to the never ceasing runaway of education from this very day, Saraswati Puja. Some may have joined schools since this day, some may have scribbled their first "A" or "Ka" on the paper while some might have spelled their name the first time. On this day, people indulge in worshiping Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and education. Educational institutions organise Saraswati pujas in their premises and students, teachers, guardians and the like pay homage to the goddess.
