Krishna Janmashtami is celebrated on the 8th day of the month of Shravana, according to the Hindu calendar. This year the festival will be celebrated on August 11, followed by Dahi Handi celebrations on August 12.
The festival is celebrated with great pomp and show to celebrate the ‘Lord of Love’. The festivities last for two days and on the first day, devotees observe a fast and stay up past midnight, which is the time He was born, and share stories about his great deeds and sing his praises. On the second day, young boys band together to form a pyramid to steal ‘makkan’, in an attempt to replicate the events that Lord Krishna was a part of in his childhood.
‘Raas Leela’, a retelling of Lord Krishna’s life story is also performed during the festival and the devotees partake in various dairy delicacies and sweets, all of which were favourites of Lord Krishna.
