Janmashtmi Special !
Aug 8th 2012
Janmashtmi is an Indian festival to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna. The word Janmashtmi is a combination of two Hindi words, Janm, means Birth and Ashtmi, which represents 8th day. Janmashtmi falls on the 8th day of the Bhadra (more commonly known as Bhado) month according to Hindi moon calender. This year Janmashtmi is on Friday, August 10th. On this auspicious day while some people eat only phalahar (special food for the days of fast) others don't even take a drop of water before the birth of Murlimanohar (another name for Krishna), which takes place at midnight. For this day various kinds of Pag (the desserts made in sugar syrup) burfi etc. are made and offered to God. As a child this used to be one of my favorite festivals - We used to go to the temples to see the decorations and celebrate the birth of Krishna at 12:00 AM with the blowing of shankh (conch shells) and bhog (the food we offer to God).....
Happy Janmashtami !!!
