Saraswati Madam.

Saraswati is a river : the river of knowledge.
On the banks of this river were set up the various universities (Gurukul)  and research centres (Ashram) of the Vedic period. The research and knowledge produced were solidified into books of ever-lasting significance, called Vedas, Vedantas, Upanishads, Vedangas, Upvedas, Shruti, Smriti, etc. Pre-historic timeline was also captured and stored in the form of Puranas. Engineering was written in Shilpa-Veda and Sthapatya-kala.
Thus the banks of this river became the seat of all knowledge and wisdom that this civilization generated, consolidated, and disseminated for ages to come.
This river began to symbolize....Knowledge. The symbolization metamorphosed into personification. The river, which cradled all knowledge and wisdom, began to be looked up as a source of all enlightenment. In this wonderfully incredible land called Bharatvarsh, they found a synonym for knowledge in Saraswati.
What is Sarawati? It is an energy inside you. (Yes! God lives inside you).
  • Saraswati is the desire to know something (systematically).
  • Saraswati is the curiosity to seek answers to questions (methodically). 
  • Saraswati is the urge to acquire information.
  • Saraswati is the refusal to live in ignorance.
  • Saraswati is the spirit of enquiry.
  • Saraswati is an ambition.
  • Saraswati is power.
  • Saraswati is sheer bliss.
