Basant Panchami is a day of celebration of all things fresh and happy. On this day, on one hand, wisdom is celebrated and on the other hand, love is honoured. While it marks the beginning of the spring season, the winters come to end with it.
Goddess Saraswati is worshipped on Basant Panchami. Goddess Saraswati is the patron of all knowledge and wisdom. She is also the Goddess of arts, music, technology and science as well as speech. This is the reason that Basant Panchami is also known as Saraswati Panchami or Shri Panchami.

The children are introduced to the world of education in a ritual known as Akshar Abhyas, Vidya Praasana or Vidya Arambh. Colleges, schools and other educational institutions offer Puja to the Goddess and seek her blessings.
