Saraswati Puja, otherwise called Vasant Panchami, is a big religious Hindu festival celebrated to honour the Goddess Saraswati – the goddess of learning who bequeaths the greatest wealth to humanity i.e. the wealth of knowledge. It is praised all through India but more particularly in the Eastern parts of India. This year, it will be celebrated on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

Focussing on the celebrations done in Bengal, it has always been an extremely exceptional day for the Bengali youths. Because it is their convention, as well as on the grounds that some call it the Bengali Valentine’s Day, while others simply appreciate purchasing new customary garments (sarees, salwar kameez or kurtis) and dressing admirably on that day. But why do we wear just yellow shaded clothes?

Yellow is the dominant colour of this festival as it signifies the ripening of fruits and crops. The mustard fields in North India sprouts amid this season giving a yellow coat to nature. Hence, people wear clothes in the shades of yellow, offer yellow flowers and sweets to Goddess and put a yellow, turmeric tilak on their forehead.

My dear ladies, we know you want to be the centre of attention throughout the celebrations and after celebration outings too, but you are not sure how to do that – wear a simple sari or salwar kameez with heavy antique-looking jewellery or vice versa? Worry not!

Here’s what you should do – Simply let your saree or salwar kameez do the talking i.e.

  • Wear something that is comfortable
  • Do not over accessorize
  • Keep your makeup subtle (it’s a day event)
