History of Vasanta Panchami celebration can be traced back to Dwapara Yuga. People worship Hindu Goddess of Learning and Arts, Maa Saraswati on this day. Students, scholars, and poets chant mantras and make an offering to the goddess so that she can bless them with wisdom. People wear yellow clothes and make yellow food items to please the goddess. In some parts of North India, people fly kites on Basant Panchami. Devotees bow down before Maa Saraswati so that she can guide them to excel in their field.
It is celebrated differently across various states of India. In Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal, small pandals are erected across the colonies and bhog is distributed. Girls wear saree and offer prayers to the goddess. Students clean their bookshelves and organize a small pooja to please Goddess Saraswati.
Basant Panchami is an auspicious day to start work. People observe fast on this day and break it in the evening with a yellow food item. Devotees also wear a yellow coloured dress and recite chalisa of Maa Saraswati. Offer milk, curd, ghee, and coconut to the goddess while doing pooja. Worshiping her along with Lord Ganesha will bring prosperity and wealth.
