It was a day devoted to worship Goddess Saraswati, the goddesss of knowledge, language and arts. Our Vice-Chancellor, Atish Chattopadhyay, Deans, and faculty members were present for the pooja. The library was filled with an aura of divinity and positivity, with a portrait of Maa Saraswati placed in the middle. Mogra and other yellow flowers were used for decorations and pooja, as yellow colour was significant to the day. Most of the students wore yellow that day. Students brought books and pens for the pooja, praying for a bright future. The pooja came to an end with the distribution of prasad (sweets) to everyone. It was followed by Sir Atish Chattopadhyay taking everyone on a brief mythological journey about Maa Saraswati and enlightened us on how liberal education was always at the core in ancient teachings.
