Today is Saraswati Puja. Today we pray to the Goddess Saraswati – the reigning deity of Academics and the Arts. Today we invoke her blessings and pray to her for guidance and knowledge.
“Sarasvati Mahaa-Bhaage Vidye Kamala-Locane |
Vidyaa-Ruupe Vishaal-Aakssi Vidyaam Dehi Namostute ||”
(O Devi Saraswati, the most Auspicious Goddess of Knowledge with Lotus-like Eyes,
An Embodiment of Knowledge with Large Eyes, Kindly Bless me with Knowledge. I Salute you.)
To many of us, the ultimate aim in life is to pursue knowledge – even at the cost of giving up all else – for us, this is the special day.
May I pray to the Goddess on behalf of all of you – may Sarawsati Mata bless you, illuminate your minds and free your souls from the shackles of Mammon.
Note: the Sketch of Saraswati is by Sudeb Bhattacharyya a young artist. He has replaced the Devi’s traditional Beena (a stringed instrument) with a Fountain Pen to highlight my all-encompassing obsession with the pen, to urge all to invoke the same spirit as we pray to the Goddess, today and everyday!

Chawm you have invoked the Goddess of knowledge at the right moment. Many people seem to have not taken seriously to learn to understand and apply the knowledge. I wish we see more really educated people than the ones who are literate and numerate and think they are educated. May people move from the unreal to the real!
Happy Saraswati Puja Sir..
Very nice art keeping your passion in mind.
Nice art. Pen is related with goddess saraswati which the picture justified.
