President Dr Ram Baran Yadav took part in the function and listened to the Vasanta hymns and the music on the capacity of head of the state, at Nasal Chok this morning. The tradition is called Vasanta Shtawan in Nepali.
Earlier, the kings used to attend the Vasanta revital.
Vice President Paramananda Jha, Chairman of the Interim Council of Ministers Khil Raj Regmi, Minister, chief of the security bodies and others also attended the event.
Vasanta panchami is also celebrated as Shree panchami by paying obeisance to Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, wisdom and creativity.
