    As the winter recedes and spring approaches, we get ready for the celebration of Vasant Panchami. On this day primarily students, artists and professors offer worship to Devi Swaraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge and Music.

    Today, 13 February, 2005, is Swaraswati Puja. The biggest festival for the students in India, mainly in the states of West Bengal and Assam. The Puja is celebrated nearly in all the schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions. Students of all the relegions take part in it. It's also an example of Unity in diversity.

    bongs must have a seperate schedule, and also unaware of how and when rest of india celebrates its festivals.. saraswati puja is part of nava ratri..

    i know this well becuase during saraswati puja, we have to keep all books near saraswati and its one day we dont have to do homework and study :p: as all the books get worshipped . then hell breaks loose on vijayadasham the next morning.. as we gotta double up and finish all the holiday homework accumalated.

    here check out http://www.amritapuri.org/cultural/bharat/navaratri.htm

    nineth day of navaratri .. the navami:
    Saraswati Puja and Ayudha Puja

    The ninth day is also the day of the Ayudha Puja. The Ayudha Puja is a worship of whatever implements one may use in one's livelihood. On the preceding evening, it is traditional to place these implements on an altar to the Divine. If one can make a conscious effort to see the divine in the tools and objects one uses each day, it will help one to see one's work as an offering to God. It will also help one to maintain constant remembrance of the divine. (In India it is customary for one to prostrate before the tools one will use before starting one's work each day; this is an expression of gratitude to God for helping one to fulfil one's duties.)

    Children traditionally place their study books and writing implements on the altar. On this day, no work or study is done, that one might spend the day in contemplation of the Divine.

    I think everybody celebrates Saraswati puja the same way. Moreover, the students get a chance not to study on this day. lolz...............
