Saraswati Prardhana

Hindu goddess Saraswati who is the wife of Lord Brahma (the Creator) is believed to be the goddess of learning. She is portrayed with a white sari (a typical Indian costume worn by the women) carrying a Veena (a stringed musical instrument played by the Carnatic classical musicians). The name of the Veena held by Saraswati is known as Madalasa and she uses hamsa or swan as her vehicle.

Every Hindu family worship Goddess Saraswati when they perform aksharabhyasam i.e. the first education of their child and seek Her blessings for good education for their children.

Basant Panchami also known as Siri Panchami is celebrated as the birth day of Goddess Saraswati and this day is auspicious for performing aksharabhyasam.

However we need to be grateful to the founding fathers who formulated and drafted an exemplary Constitution of India that has steered India towards progress and development. Due to the untiring efforts of the great leaders / freedom fighters of our nation under oppressive conditions, we / you all are fortunate of being born in independent India.
