Basant Panchami is celebrated every year to welcome the spring season. The festival is also dedicated to Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, art, wisdom and good fortune. On this day, people wear yellow-colored clothes and worship the goddess of knowledge and wisdom. The colour symbolises knowledge and signifies peace, good health as well as prosperity.
