“Hearty greetings to all countrymen on the holy festival of Basant Panchami, a symbol of new zeal and new energy. Mother Goddess Saraswati wishes to provide knowledge, prosperity and good health in everyone’s life,” Shah tweeted (in roughly translated Hindi).

Basant Panchami, the competition which marks the arrival of the spring season in India, can be celebrated on February 16, this year. Held on the fifth day (Panchami) of the Magha maas (month), Basant Panchami can be celebrated as Saraswati Puja in some components of the nation.

The significance of the event is large in Hindu tradition, because the day is taken into account extraordinarily auspicious to start out new work, get married or carry out home warming ceremony.
