Saraswati Puja celebrated at Deep Campus
Saraswati puja is the festival of goddess of knowledge. These celebrations at campus ensure that students find a home away from home. The Pooja was graced with the presence of our Dean, Dr. BM Nagpal, Dr. OP Talwar (Director of Academics), Dr. S. Gokhale (Director of Basic sciences), HOD, teaching and not teaching staff, and the students. The faculty and the students joined hands with great zeal to make the event a memorable one also evoking the blessing of the goddess of knowledge for a successful academic and career growth.
The idol of the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom was placed on a Basanti coloured cloth and books were piled up in front of the goddess. Chanting of shlokas, mantras from the Holy texts, aarti and singing hymns in praise of the goddess formed a vital part of this puja. The Panditji enlightened us on the concept of worshipping the Goddess of knowledge. Blessings of the Goddess were requested for students to succeed in examinations and to attain wisdom and knowledge and were received in the form of prassad.
