India celebrated Janmastami, or the birthday of Lord Krishna, the avatar of Vishnu, who was instrumental in the creation of Hindu dhramas. He played an instrumental role not just in the way the Mahabharata was shaped, but also gave us the path to righteousness and how a difficult decision can be tackled. The Bhagavat-Gita that deals with how a Hindu should lead his life comes from the teachings and life of Lord Krishna. So well rooted is Krishna and the Bhagavad-Gita that the holy book is used to take the oath in a court of law in the nation. Krishna would live stealing freshly whipped cream and curds, so his mother would tie them high out of his reach. Yet the mischievous Kaanha would entice his peers to make a human pyramid and steal goodies. Till date, we celebrate his birth the same way. Govinda Alaa Re!
