SARASWATI PUJA CELEBRATION On the auspicious day of ‘Saraswati Puja’, the students and faculty of IQ City Medical College Hospital, Durgapur came together to seek the blessings of the goddess of knowledge, music, art and culture. The event was celebrated with a lot of devotion and dedication by worshiping Goddess Saraswati, who is the fountain head of all learning and art forms. Students worshipped Maa Saraswati to seek wisdom, artistic and technical skills, academic excellence and a good heart. The ritual was graced with the presence of all the students, staff and faculty.
Prof. (Dr.) Gautam Ghose, Principal enlightened on the concept and significance of Saraswati puja on the occasion of Basant Panchami. It is believed that worshipping Goddess Saraswati on this occasion symbolizes constant flow of the unseen river of wisdom and represents the full blossoming of all the hues of Nature to keep the light of inspiration kindled forever. Maa Saraswati has four hands that signify the ego, mind, intellect and alertness of the human beings. We find her holding lotus in one hand which signifies true knowledge. She also holds the Vedas in one hand and carries a veena (musical instrument). Maa Saraswati sits on white swan which symbolises the purest form of knowledge.
Both the faculty and students joined hands together, with great zeal to make the event a memorable one, also evoking the blessing of the goddess of knowledge to have a successful academic and carrier growth by performing ‘Saraswati Vandana’. The event was ended by serving prasad to everyone present.
