Basant Panchmi February 2021
Basant Panchmi is celebrated on the fifth day (Panchami Tithi) of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) of the Hindu month Magh. From this day, Vasant Ritu (the spring season) begins in India. Panchami is celebrated on the second day. The celebration can only shift to the next day in one condition i.e. if Panchami Tithi is not prevailing in the first half of the first day at any point in time. Otherwise, in all other cases, the celebration will take place on the first day. That is why, sometimes, Basant Panchamialso falls on the Chaturthi Tithi as per Panchang.On this day, Goddess Rati and Lord Kamdev are worshiped in 16 ways (Shodhashopchar Puja) during the first half of this day i.e. the time between sunrise till midday.
