As the Hindu festival of Navarathiri gets underway, children at the Dartford Tamil Knowledge Centre marked the event with a traditional Saraswathy poosai (prayer service) and offerings of pongal, vadai, fruit, flowers, etc.

Held in dedication to Saraswathy, considered by devotees to be the goddess of learning and education, devotees traditionally place books, instruments or any object of learning at the poosai, to receive her blessings.
