Photographer's Note

Maa Saraswati or Devi Sarasvati is the goddess of knowledge, music and the arts. She is the consort of Lord Brahma. Goddess Saraswati is considered to be the “mother of the Vedas”
The name Saraswati came from “saras” (meaning “flow”) and “wati” (meaning “a woman”). So, Maa Saraswati is symbol of knowledge; its flow (or growth) is like a river and knowledge is supremely alluring, like a beautiful woman.
In the Rigveda, Saraswati is a river as well as its personification as a goddess. In the post-Vedic age, she began to lose her status as a river goddess and became increasingly associated with literature, arts, music, etc. In Hinduism, Saraswati represents intelligence, consciousness, cosmic knowledge, creativity, education, enlightenment, music, the arts, and power. Hindus worship her not only for “secular knowledge”, but for “divine knowledge” essential to achieve moksha.
