Festivals are an expressive way to celebrate glorious heritage, culture, and tradition. They are meant to rejoice special moments and emotions in our lives with our loved ones.
Basant Panchami marks the beginning of the spring season. The festival of spring is celebrated with full vivacity and joy amongst the Hindus. In the Hindi language, the word ‘Basant’ means spring, and ‘Panchami’ means the fifth day. In short, Basant Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of the Spring Season. Basant Panchami falls on the fifth day of the Indian month, Magh (January-February). This festival is also known as Saraswati Puja.
