Janmashtami is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Krishna, one of the most powerful and famous reincarnations of Lord Vishnu. According to the Hindu calendar, this festival is celebrated on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon. This day indicated the beginning of hope in the older times; hope, that the malicious rule of Kansa would soon end.
To seek the blessings of Lord Krishna, Janmashtami was celebrated at NHIS on 6th August, 2023 with mirth and joy. While this religious importance is not lost, this day signifies a lot more to modern India, it signifies excitement, euphoria and a joyous spirit of enthrallment. To celebrate the extraordinary bond between children and the Almighty, NHIS took the opportunity to both educate and entertain. Students were all mesmerised with the Kirtans along with the Team NIVE from ISKCON. This was followed by dance and skit.
The students dressed up as lord Krishna and Radha, complete with flutes, peacock feathers and matkas. The premise was decorated beautifully and the spirit of festivity was enhanced with Jhanki and Ratha and a skit depicting the Birth of Lord Krishna. The celebration that followed was truly entertaining and educating.
