Saraswati Puja today

The Hindu community is set to celebrate Saraswati Puja, worshiping the goddess of knowledge, music, art and culture, across the country today with maintaining health guidelines in the wake of coronavirus pandemic.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in separate messages, today greeted members of the Hindu community on the occasion of the Saraswati Puja, reports BSS.

On the day of Saraswati Puja, children are traditionally introduced to education and learning and this ritual is called “Hatekhori”. Toddlers are usually given a slate and chalk to scribble with on the auspicious day.
