BASANT PANCHAMI @ SBS

Vasant Panchami day is dedicated to Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, music, arts, science and technology. This festival highlights the coming of spring. SBS faculty members celebrated it with students. Dr. Ghazala Qadri, management trustee informed students that Vasant stands for spring, and Panchami means the fifth day. Thus, the festival is celebrated on the fifth day of the spring season. Although now the festival is dominated by the worship of the goddess Saraswati, a grand feast is prepared in the honour of Kamadeva. Also, love is still considered an integral part of the day, as it is auspicious to host a large number of weddings during the festival.
