Saraswati Puja is being celebrated today on Vasant Panchami. Worship (Puja) of Saraswati, the Indian Goddess of learning marks the day. The puja is particularly significant for the students and scholars.  

Vasant Panchami (also called, Basant Panchami) marks the preparation for the arrival of spring. Vasant Panchami also marks the start of preparation for Holika and Holi which take place forty days later. 

The Vasant Utsava (festival) on Panchami is celebrated forty days before spring, because any season’s transition period is 40 days, and after that, the season comes into full bloom.
