Basant Panchami Pooja
Dressed up in yellow, signifying happiness and optimism the faculty, staff and students of Dr. Gaur Hari Singhania Institute of Management and Research celebrated Basant Panchami on 29th January 2020.
Basant Panchami is a famous festival that marks the end of the winter season and ushers in the springtime. The celebration of Basant Panchami is centered on the Hindu Goddess Sarasvati. It is also known as the Avtaran Diwas of Devi Sarasvati.
Sarasvati is the Goddess of wisdom. She embodies the different facets of learning such as the sciences, arts, crafts and skills. She is said to be calm and collected. It is believed that without Saraswati the world would be shrouded in ignorance, as she is the one who represents enlightenment. Celebration at the institute started with Poojan, Havan and followed by Prasad distribution. It was wonderful to see the teachers and students together worshiping for enhancing their knowledge and wisdom.
