Basant Panchmi was celebrated with full vivacity and festivity at Bansal College of Pharmacy Bhopal. The College was decorated with yellow rangoli and kites. Yellow rice a dish specific to the occasion was also distributed.
The Basant Panchami festival falls on the fifth day (Panchami) of the Hindu month of Magha. The festival is considered to mark the onset of spring in India. Basant Panchami is said to be an extremely auspicious day, as the devotees worship Goddess Saraswati, daughter of Goddess Durga. It is believed that goddess Saraswati, who is the goddess of knowledge, music, arts, science and technology, was born on this day. Hence we celebrate Saraswati Puja on Basant Panchami. Dr. Satish Nayak Director, Bansal College of Pharmacy, Bhopal presided over the function. At college campus we had havan pujan, followed by aarti and prasad distribution.
