Here is your short paragraph on Vasant Panchami:
Vasant Panchami herald the advent of Spring. In the North, Basant Panchami is a spring festival when people wear yellow garments and fly kites.
This is a Hindu festival that is celebrated in honour of Saraswati. The celebration is more extensive in Bengal and Bihar where images are taken in musical processions after the Puja is over and immersed in the rivers.
On Basant Panchami, as stated yellow is particularly worn as a symbolic sign of veneration to Saraswati, Goddess of Learning, Wisdom and Fine Arts. Saraswati is reputed to have invented the musical instrument, Veena.
Basant Panchami is very popular in Bengal. On this day, as said before. Goddess Saraswati is worshipped. The day is observed as holiday in the state and all public offices remain closed. No reading and writing is permissible. Both sexes usually wear basanti or yellow cloth and celebrate the festival with music, recitations and rejoicing. The prayer is held in every localities, in temples, schools, colleges and universities. The clay figures of the deity are made.
Goddess of learning Devi Saraswati is worshipped on the fifth day of Magh (January-February) by scribes, scholars and students. Strangely one school holds the opinion that it is auspicious to write important documents on this sacred day. While another school holds the view that on this day, no writings should be done and all books, pens, pencils, ink-stands and other writings materials should be locked up before an image of Saraswati.
