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 10th February, 2019. Details are below.
