Janmashtami, an Indian festival

1871

Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna is celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm in India in the month of August. According to the Hindu calendar this religious festival is celebrated on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon.
The actual celebration of Janmashtami takes place at midnight as Lord Krishna is believed to be born on a dark, stormy and windy night to end the rule and violence of his uncle, Kansa. All over India this day is celebrated with devotional songs and dances, pujas, arti, blowing of the conch and rocking the cradle of baby Krishna. This Janmashtami let us all hail Lord Krishna and absorb his teachings in our life.
