It is a day in which youths make special efforts to be involved in prayers, since this is the Hindu Goddess that bestows knowledge and wisdom to mankind.Mother Swarswattie can be identified from the other Gods in Hinduism by her white apparel and the “Veena” she holds in her hand. She is also the consort of Lord Brahma, who is the Creator of the Universe.Various mandirs also had services to commemorate this auspicious day.last_img
