Kiddies Krishnashtami

Krishnashtami is a well known festival of Hindus. We all celebrate it with religious fervour. In our family also we celebrate it with great pomp. Actually, India is a land of festivals. Every day we observe a new festival, particularly this time between July to Oct/Nov most of the festivals fall. My sister in Chicago miss them a lot and that is the main reason why i don't want to settle down in abroad. we miss that religious zeal and enthusiasm there. Not that they are not festive or religious, but they have different festivals which are celebrated differently. Even while being in Hyderabad i miss some festivals that we used to celebrate in North in a more grand style.

Well, coming back to Krishnashtami... Yesterday we observed fast whole day and chanted some Krishna bhajans in evening (with Krishna and Radha) and finally went for Krishna Darshan in Temple.Yes!! you thought it right. How come with Krishna and Radha? That's my son and his friend. For a couple of years, one more job has been added to me, for that day
along with other things to do, is to makeover my son as Krishna and make sure that his friend gets dressed like Radha. He is so fond of Lord Krishna. He watches Krishna serial, Cartoon series with great interest and is fascinated by those big monsters (Rakshasaz) and how Krishna defeat them so easily. Here's a snap of him and his friend in the avatar.......
