Krishna Janamasthami - Eternal bond of a child and mother
India is a land of festivals. We profoundly bank on our festivals to build our relationships and carry forward our traditions. India being a secular nation we have scores of festivals that cross the boundaries of race and religion. One festival that just passed by is Krishna Janamasthami. Krishna Janamasthami is celebrated on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in Shraavana or Bhadrapad (depending on whether the calendar chooses the new moon or full moon day as the last day of the month), which overlaps with August or September of the Gregorian calendar.
and his birth and his early childhood are all about the bond he shared with Yashoda
his foster mother. This got me thinking how deep the love between a mother and
her child can be. A mother can do all that one can fathom for her child. Devaki
the birth mother of Krishna did the ultimate sacrifice of letting go of
her child for his own wellbeing. But a mothers heart is always with their kids,
no matter if they are near or far. Devaki’s sacrifice if far beyond any
expression of love. On the other end if we look at Yashoda, she is a
true epitome of love. Her love for her Kanha is known for all moments
mushy and mischief.
Let me conclude,
with a beautiful line, “Labor is the only blind date, where you know you will
meet the love of your life!”
