Yesterday, it was Janamashtmi– Lord Krishna’s birthday. Celebrated all over India, it might be the most popular birthday in the world after Christmas.

Religious minded Hindus, observe a fast this day, breaking it at the joyuous moment of Gopal’s (as Krishna is fondly called) time of birth. Exactly at the stroke of midnight.

Shri Krishna is the God of Bliss, anandam and together with His consort, Shri Radha the epitome of ‘ras’ that is essence of beauty & love. Mantra for a perfect life my dear.

The poem above describes the squeaky, cute sound made by a child’s slippers as he enters my home. And how happy I’m because of that.

Man, i’ll have to have some translation skills.

Krishna, my forever friend.
