Dwarka gears up to celebrate Krishna Janmashtami

After celebrating Raksha Bandhan with great fun and joy, people are now gearing up for another festival, Janmashtmi. Just like the whole of India, Dwarka residents too are busy in preparing for the festival. While some societies will celebrate the festival in their society premises, social and religious organisations are prepping up to celebrate the festival at a large scale in places like Iskcon Temple sector 13, Golak Dham Temple Sector 10, Dwarkadeheesh Temple sector 12 etc.

Temples inside residential pockets, RWAs, ladies groups and kirtan mandali will celebrate Krishna Janmashtami with cultural activities which will be performed by children and ladies of the society. At some places the programme will be organised by RWA, while at other places groups of residents will organise. RWAs are organising programmes in their society’s temple and have put a notice on the notice board at the gates to attract children in participating for the cultural events.

There will be programmes like cultural dance, classical music, quiz competition, musical chair competition for ladies, dance drama, Krishn Leela, rock show etc. Community people from various societies will also participate in the programmes which will be held at Iskcon Temple, Golak Dham Temple etc.

In places like Iskcon Temple, sector 13, cultural events and religious activities will be performed. Informing about the programmes, congregation director of ISKCON Temple Dwarka, Archit Das said that this year Lord Krishna will be in the form of Bumble Bee while Radha as a flower. He said that the entire temple premises will be turned into a jungle with Krishna and Radha. He added “Last year we had put Krishna in a basket with Vasudev crossing the Yamuna river but this year we are depicting Krishna and Radha as Bumble Bee and flower. It will show Krishna coming to Radha and expressing his love. That would be the centre of attraction.”

The celebration will start from 21st August in the evening and will end on 24th August at night. A dance drama on the life of Krishna, kirtan yatra and many other such activities will be a part of the celebration. Children from schools, community and various societies in Dwarka will perform in the programmes. Classical dance, singing and painting competition for children etc will be held in which community people would also participate. Archit Das said that there will be programmes like KBKD( Kaun Banega Krishna Ka Devotee) to attract more people. The programme is based on the concept of popular TV serial Kaun Banega Crorepati and is held every year. People say that they enjoy participating in this progamme.

Children eagerly wait for Janmashtmi celebration every year. Sunita Yadav student of class 9 from sector 13 said, “This programme is based on the same pattern as ‘Kaun Banega Carorepati'. The hosts asks questions based on Lord Krishna’s life and the winner is given prizes. I am excited to participate this year and have also done my preparation for the same.”

At Golak Dham Radha Govind Mandir, Sector 10, pravachan, kirtan and cultural programmes will be there followed by abhishek, aarti etc. Krishna Leela is the major attraction of the day. There will be performance by children too.
