In mythology, Basant Panchami is considered to be the birthday of the Hindu goddess of learning, Saraswati. She is the goddess of knowledge, wisdom, and the arts, and is often depicted holding a book, a rosary, and a musical instrument. This festival is an occasion for people to seek blessings from the goddess, particularly for students and scholars who pray for her blessings before undertaking any new academic or creative endeavor.

On this day, people visit temples dedicated to the goddess and offer prayers, flowers, and sweets. Some people also organize cultural events such as music and dance performances in her honor. The temples are decorated with flowers and yellow color, which is considered to be the color of the festival. People also offer yellow flowers to the goddess, and some people even wear yellow clothes on this day.

In addition to its religious significance, Basant Panchami also has a cultural significance as it marks the beginning of the spring season. It is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. This is why it is also a major festival in Punjab, where people celebrate it by flying kites. Kite flying is a major event on this day and people gather in open spaces to fly kites and enjoy the festival.
