History (Krishna’s Story)

Lord Krishna was born to King Vasudev and Queen Devaki, imprisoned by Kansh. The reason behind this was the oracle that the 8th child of Devaki would be the reason for the destruction of tyrant Kansh. 

A famous saying in Hindi goes- Honi ko kaun taal sakta hai. Whatever has to happen will happen by any means. Lord Krishna grew strong and wise to kill Kansh, and that’s exactly what happened.

In the meantime, Krishna had crossed many assassination conspiracies and battled hundred of demons sent by Kansh.

In the later stage of his life, Krishna grew wise and intellectual enough to conduct the Battle of Mahabharat. Mahabharat was the battle for Kaurava’s injustice on Pandavas for Hastinapur. The purpose of Mahabharat was the Eternal Bhagwad Geeta. Bhagwad Geeta advises about the nature of life, ethics, and morality between good and evil, the perishability of matter, the permanence of the soul and the good, duties and responsibilities, and the nature of true peace.

It is a long story short, with many prodigious tales of Lord Krishna at every stage of his life.


The Dwapar Yuga tale validates the birth of Lord Krishna in Mathura, India. People celebrate his birthday with great joy, devotion, and multiple events across India, Nepal, and worldwide. Here are some of the observances;

  • Puja and Bhog: The day starts and ends with offering prayers and Bhog to Lord Krishna. Bhog includes favourite things of Lord Krishna like Makhan-Mishri, Panjeerie etc.
  • Fasting: The devotees pledge a day-long fast to accomplish it the next day after Rohini Nakshatra and Ashtami Tithi.
  • Dahi Handi: Inspired by Lord Krishna breaking Handi(Earthen Pots) to savour Makhan Malai, this event includes breaking a Handi held high. People tie the Dahi-filled handi high up in the air and crack it with their hands, rising over each other.

  • Decoration for Krishna Janmashtami: The entire city of Mathura and Vrindavan is decorated like a new bride to honour the day.

  • Cultural dance and singing: Various programs are observable everywhere around cities and Villages to mark the birth of Lord Krishna.
  • Rath Yatra: Many cities worldwide organise Rath Yatra(Chariot Procession) and Jhankis. One of the best ones is observable in Biratnagar, Nepal.
