Sarasvati is a goddess of primary importance. She is recognised by Hindus as the goddess of learning, the arts, and scholarship.Saraswati is also called Vak Devi, the goddess of speech.

Meaning of Sarasvati:Saraswati means “flowing” and “watery” It is related with an ancient river that was significant in the Vedic period but eventually dried up because of a desertification that was occurring in the region.
Lord Brahma is known for creating the universe. Since knowledge is required for creation, Maa Saraswati signifies the creative power of Brahma. An right creation requires sound knowledge. The creation of Lord Brahma became fruitful with the knowledge provided by Goddess Saraswati.
During the early Vedic period Sarasvati was associated with Agni.In the multiple
traditions reflected in the earliest Vedic hymns, Sarasvati next became the
partner of Indra and then the As´vins, the twin physicians of the devas (gods).
