The mantra above brings back memories in many of us from our childhood days of getting up early in the morning, going to the neighborhood pandal loaded with books but on an empty stomach to offer our respects to Ma Saraswati and seek her all-important blessings for the upcoming exams. After the blessings were received it would be time for the 'not to be missed' prosad featuring kool (ber), sports & general fun with friends.

To offer our respect to Goddess Saraswati, we will celebrate Saraswati Puja on 24th January, 2015.

It will take place at

Wijkcentrum 't Open Hof
Burgemeester Haspelslaan 129
1181 NC Amstelveen

Apart from pujo, pushpanjali, khawa-dawa, adda etc. we will organise an event for children and games for adults. See below for programme and contribution details.

We look forward to seeing you all on 24th January and your active participation in making the upcoming event a success.
