“Sri Krishna Jayanthi Festivities Illuminate Shanthi Bhavan with Joy”
We celebrated Sri Krishna Jayanthi at Shanthi Bhavan on September 6, 2023, with great enthusiasm. Sri Krishna Jayanthi, also known as Janmashtami, is a Hindu festival celebrated in Kerala and across India to commemorate the birth of Lord Krishna, who is considered the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. In Kerala, this festival holds great significance, and it is celebrated with traditional fervor and devotion. The highlight of the day was the children gathering and dressing up as Lord Krishna and his wife Radha, along with other cultural attire, to organize a vibrant rally. The atmosphere was filled with happiness, with residents young and old contributing to the festive spirit. Following the procession, a lively program of dance and songs was arranged, bringing smiles to everyone’s faces and making it a memorable and enjoyable experience for all.
