Sarswati Pooja
It's importance

In Southern India Navaratri is divided to 3 Days, 1 to 3 days for Durga, 4 to 6 for Lakshmi & days 7 to 9 for  Saraswathi Devi. Saraswati is considered the Devi of knowledge, music & wisdom. Children seek blessings to excel in all fields
On Durga Ashtami day Books are Kept for Saraswathi Pooja. On MahaNavami poojas are performed. Children are not supposed to read or write when books are Kept for pooja. Dashami also called VijayaDashami or Vidyarambam denotes a time for all the positive beginnings.
Many temples provide Vidyarambam poojas the same is at home too.

Books are taken from Pooja and Aksharabhyasam ( starting of education )is done on this day. Whatever project started on Vijaya Dashami will be a great success.
Ayudha Puja is a part of the Navratri festival which is traditionally celebrated in India. It is also called Astra Puja. In simple terms, it means Worship of Instruments. Music instruments, any tools used for work, in office etc
