Janmashtmi is on the doors. A well known festival celebrated by the followers of Lord Krishna, one of the most important God who had all the qualities (16 ) not found and observed in other Gods.
It is observed in the evening as Krishna was born in the mid night. This day is also indicative of beginning of Kalyuga and end of Dwapar Yuga. It is said in holy book Bhagwad Gita by Lord Vishnu that whenever there is evil in the world he would reincarnate to end evil in the society.
I remember during our childhood we used to visit a large number of temples as well as a number of exhibitions at the gates of the houses made by childern (Jhanki) in our town Palwal with friends. By night we had visited all the important temples in the town and so much tired that after having special food at home, wait till we used to get special Prasad of Panjiri (from flour, sugar and fruits) and Charnamach (out of curd) from the nearby temple after the so called birth of Lord Krishna (beyond 2400 hrs). It used to be a memorable affair.
