According to the Hindu Calendar, Janmashtami is celebrated as Shri Krishna’s birthday and Krishna’s followers observe fast for the entire day and stay up till midnight, the time when he is believed to have been born. As the clock strikes 12, loads of bhakts queue up in front of temples, to get a glimpse of their little Kanha. And later they break the fast, only after feeding the Lord, with fruits or charna amrit. On this pious festival, children all over the country relive the childhood of Krishna by getting dressed like him and being accompanied with cute little Radhas.
