Krishna Janamashtami is one festival which has its own charm and grandeur at the same time. The festival is devoted to Lord Krishna. The festival commemorates his birth. Shri Krishna is the 8th avatar of Lord Vishnu. The Natkhat Nand Gopal as he is called is the apple of everyone’s eye even in ‘’Kaliyuga’’. His Notorious activities and beautiful face charms his devotees. Janamashtami is a grand festival for Krishna Devotees who celebrate it like a child is born in their own family. People keep fast for 24 hours and only eat during the midnight, the time that is believed to be the birth time of Lord Krishna. The entire day is filled with pomp and shows. Krishna-Radha raasleela are organised with never seen before beauty. The temples witness thousands of devotees singing Krishna Bhajans and they make preparation to welcome the new born Lord Krishna. The festival is celebrated on the 8th day of the Krishna Paksha of the Bhadrapada month. The celebration in Mathura and Vrindavan is magnificent and charming.
Krishna was born to Vasudeva and Devki. His uncle Kansa was cruel and evil and vowed to kill the 8th son of devki who was a threat to his life. Immediately after Lord Krishna’s birth his father Vasudev took him to his foster parents Nand and Yashoda. From then on his birth is celebrated as Krishna Janamashtami. Krishna Janamashtami 2017 is again looked forward to by all Krishna Devotees.
People sing Bhajans and dance and eagerly wait for the clock to strike 12. As soon as it is midnight Lord Krishna’s idol is given a ceremonial bath and palced in a cradle. People then exchange sweets and rejoice. In Maharashtra Dahi Handi ceremony is organised and people enjoy it to the core. Dwarka the holy abode of Lord Krishna witnesses similar Dahi Handi ritual which is called Makhan Handi. Main attractions are the different ways of celebration in North India. Krishna temples are decorated with lights and balloons.
