If the answer is yes, Happy Vasant Panchami
A very special day today, as the Hindu believers celebrate Vasant Panchami, the festival celebrating the fields and ripening of the yellow flowers, the celebration of Saraswati, Goddess of knowledge, language, music and every art, and whose favourite colour is yellow, as matter of fact, a colour that dominates this day’s clothing and attire across all believers. This day is also a very auspicious and fortunate day for students, as special protegees of the Goddess, as well as a good day to start a new creative endeavour, and regardless of its dedications and protections, it is a very cheerful and happy festivity, celebrated by people dressed in yellow singing, dancing and reciting, as the first fruits and crops begin to ripen on the open fields.
Symbolically we are looking at the preparation for the soon coming of spring which is around the corner, a little bit more patience and we are there, as, according to the Hindu calendar it is only forty days left to the first day of spring and full bloom.
Oh, and by the way, a great way to celebrate this day is traditional kite flying, as in many parts of India, and not only, the blue sky gets covered by yellow spots which are the colorful and beautiful embroidered kites flown by children and not only, cheering and greeting Saraswati and the gift of the much awaited spring, which now is on the doorstep
