Basant Panchami is a festival that highlights the onset of spring season. It was celebrated with great enthusiasm by the students of Renaissance School.
An important part of the festival is Saraswati Puja; hence the assembly commenced with an invocation to the Goddess of knowledge & Wisdom. This was followed by “Saraswati Vandana”. Beautifully sung; it lent a feeling of peace and harmony around.
An informative speech was given on the significance of the occasion by Manvi Gupta, VIIE. She spoke about why the worship of Goddess of Learning coincides with the advent of spring and why we, traditionally wear yellow on that day.
