Saraswati Puja that coincides with Basant Panchami (Vasant Panchami) will be observed on February 10. The goddess of wisdom and knowledge, Saraswati, is worshipped on this day. Goddess Saraswati is the energy of Brahma, and symbolizes creative energy and power in all its form. Saraswati Puja, popular in Bengal, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, is performed for a single day. Temples dedicated to Goddess Saraswati are decorated and special puja is performed to remember the Goddess. Devotees also dress up in yellow-coloured clothes and prepare yellow-coloured food like sweet saffron rice, kesari sheera, boondi ke ladoo, rajbhog and khichdi. Devotees also design Saraswati Puja alpana in their homes, a rangoli-like sacred painting using a paste of rice and flour.
