Krishna Janmashtami is here. The world is rejoicing with ‘radhe radhe’ and ‘Jai shri Krishna’.
We Indians are very lucky because all our months are heralded by nicest of festivals which give us a break from the monotony of life and helps us in our social and spiritual development. They are a lot of fun and provide you time to connect with yourself, your family and your society.
Also, I believe, it boosts our economy. Rakhi, teej, karva chauth all include enormous amounts of shopping for gifts and self, etc. All the shopkeepers make merry while we women folk go berserk with the numerous choices!!
However, festivals are by no means easy on the ladies running the house. First visit overcrowded markets and bargain for the dresses and ornaments for the baby. Prepare sweets and delicacies to give bhog to the Gods. Clean your house so well so that God finds it suitable!. Throng temples and tussle in crowds, sweat hard to give a jhula to our beloved Bal Krishna, all the whike making sure that your own kith and kin does not get lost in the crowd!!.
After all this, you realise that existence of God and it’s realisation is the sole motive of all these struggles!!
Happy Janmashtami to all you folks!.
