Janmashtami 2016


Janmashtami is also known as Krishnashtami, which is an annual celebration of the birth of the Hindu deity Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu. This festival is celebrated on the eight day of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) of the month of Shravana (August-September).

On this occasion I wore this Lehanga from Craftsvilla. This time the decorations took almost couple of days as I was trying to make a Jhula (a cradle) for Lord Krishna and ran errands for almost a day for the flowers and the decor. I offered prasadam (is a material substance of food that is a religious offering to God, which is normally consumed by the worshippers) like two types of Coconut Laddus (Laddu or laddoo are the ball-shaped sweets popular in Indian-Subcontinent. they are often served at festive or religious occasions.), one with the Condensed Milk and the other with Cardamom and Saffron. I have also made Gulab Jamun (sweet made from milk solids) spicy namak para (spicy diamond cuts made from all purpose flour), Muruku (savory and crunchy snack made with rice flour) and spicy puri (deep fried savory snack made from all purpose flour), Ghee (clarified butter), Makhan (milk cream), Milk, Yogurt, Poha (flattened rice) and fruits.
