Janmashtami is a two-day celebration in many parts of India. The days are celebrated colorfully and the merrymaking reaches its peak at midnight of the first day, when Lord Krishna was born. Ladies perform bhajans in there home and tell the great stories and epic of lord Krishna to the family members. To mark the birth of the deity, the idol of the infant Krishna is bathed and is cradled in the midnight time. Conch shell (shank) is blown and the devotees celebrate the birth of the Lord Krishna by singing devotional songs and by dancing with great joy. Thereafter, mouthwatering sweets and dishes are served to the devotees. I include the sweets because I love to have panchamit, kheer and delicious sweets as the Prasad at midnight.

Lord Krishna had played important role in Mahabharata as he guided Arjun in Kurushetra and tell us about the good Karma and various dharmas. He gave us the important message in our life and that is “karam karte jaa ,fhal ki chinta mat kar”

“WORK HARD AND NEVER EXPECT FOR THE RESULT”
