Almost a year ago, my dear friend and cosinger Malavi and I had a good opportunity of singing this beautiful song on Goddess Saraswathi in a book launch function. We loved the song so much, and ever since we wanted so much to record this together. This is our first recording collaboration and hope we can sing more. Hope you enjoy our humble effort.
This song is composed in Saraswati ragam. Video has visuals of Vaani, Veena Paani, the Goddess of Music, Arts, Knowledge, Learning and Wisdom. (image courtesy: web sources).

Salutations to Devi Saraswati ...
Who is pure white like jasmine, with the coolness of moon, brightness of snow and shine like the garland of pearls; and who is covered with pure white garments,
Whose hands are adorned with veena (a stringed musical instrument) and the boon-giving staff; and who is seated on pure white lotus,
Who is always adored by Lord Brahma, Lord Atchyuta (Lord Vishnu), Lord Shankara and other devas,
O Goddess Saraswati, please protect me and remove my ignorance completely.
