Navaratri is the festival during which the nine forms of the Hindu Deity 'Durga' are worshipped on each day. The word Navaratri means nine nights in Sanskrit ('Nava' meaning nine and 'Ratri' meaning night). The tenth day of the festival is known as Vijaya Dashami or Dussehra (Dasera). The festival is an important one and is celebrated all throughout India and Nepal.

In the Southern Parts of India; in Tamil Nadu, on the ninth day of Navaratri , i.e., on the day of Mahanavami, Saraswathi Puja and Ayudha Puja are performed. All books, musical instruments and work tools are kept before the Goddess Saraswathi (the Goddess of knowledge) and special religious rituals (Poojas) are performed by the temple priests. The books and other work instruments are taken back after Puja on Vijaya Dashami (the tenth day); on which students resume their studies afresh. The day is considered auspicious to initiate learning and is known as popularly known as 'Vidyarambham'.

Also in Kerala and some parts of Karnataka, Saraswathi Puja is performed on three days; mainly on Ashtami, Navami and Vijaya Dashami. During these days all the books are placed in one's own house or temples for Puja and are taken out on Vijaya Dashami after worshiping Goddess Saraswathi. In the state of Kerala too, the day is considered auspicious initiating studies and is known as Vidyarambham.
