Shy. Varanasi. Uttar Pradesh
A little girl dressed up in a beautiful sari for the Sarasvati day. She was a bit shy and nervous...During Vasant Panchami, a day for Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and learning, all the kids are dressed up and don't go to school.
Sarasvati represents the free flow of wisdom and consciousness. She is the mother of the Vedas, and chants to her, called the 'Saraswati Vandana' often begin and end Vedic lessons.
Another image of her going to the school with her mother:
