Residents of Supertech Capetown, a residential society in Sector 74, performed Saraswati Puja in the society. Cultural programmes, including dance and devotional songs by society's children, were also held on the occasion.

Shailendra Baranwal, a resident, said, "Saraswati Puja is one of my favourite festivals. I like this festival particularly because I am a teacher by profession and so devotion to the goddess comes automatically."

"I am participating in a dance competition with my team later in the day and I am excited about my performance," said Shreya Mathur, a 12-year-old resident.
