New Delhi, Feb 16, 2021: Basant Panchami highlights the onset of the spring season which is the symbol of new thoughts, new learning, and freshness. An important part of the festival is Saraswati puja, hence an assembly was organised with an invocation to the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom on Tuesday, 16th February 2021, by the students of Nursery and K.G.

Children offered yellow marigold flowers and yellow prasad to Goddess Saraswati. The significance of the occasion was explained to the children. Some children recited Rhymes on Basant Panchami, some explained why and how we celebrate this festival. This was followed by a rendition of the action song and Saraswati Vandana. It was a treat to the eyes watching all the students dressed up traditionally in yellow-coloured clothes and perform in this special assembly so enthusiastically.
