A truly epic moment in the Mahabharat - a war between the Pandavs and Kauravs, the battle that takes place in our own minds on a daily basis. As Bhishma was about to kill Arjuna with his arrows, Lord Krishna threw down the chariot reins and jumped off the chariot onto the battlefield, lifted a chariot wheel and charged Bhishma. Arjuna tried to stop Lord Krishna, but the Lord said, “In order to protect my devotee, I must break my promise to use weapons.
#Krishna #Janmashtami celebrates the birth of Krishna, and is celebrated differently across India. While elaborate dramas and plays are the norm in Mathura and Vrindavan, people from Odisha and Bengal usually fast the previous day. In Tamil Nadu, beautiful kolams are created and a young boy is often dressed up as Krishna. However, the most enthusiastic celebrations are probably in #Maharashtra, with young men climbing atop human pyramids to break the hanging pot full of buttermilk!
