In the childhood Krishna steals the butter from the handi, which is tied up beyond his reach, he climbs over his friends shoulder to steal the butter (makhaan) and the handi slips and it breaks, he steal to eat and not to win the prize money!!!
Today we are breaking Dahi Handi for the sake of money; why to commercialize and politicize the festival of Janmastami? Lord Krishna the god who took Avatar to cleanse the world of sin gave us the Bhagwad Gita and promised us to return on this earth, whenever the evil overweigh good.
The whole world is celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna on the Ashtami; which is observed on the eight day of the dark half or Krishna paksha of the month Shraavan in Rohini Nakshatra, it falls between Mid-August to Mid-September, his birth on the earth has completed 5232 years; he was born on 21st July 3228 BC; he lived 125 years on this earth.
The Mahabharata war was fought on November 22nd 3067 BC – Lord Krishna left Dwarka 36 years after the battle of Mahabharata and he was not seen after that, according to the Hindu scriptures that he was 89 years old when the battle was fought, again the Mahabharata mentions that Kalyug began on the day Krishna left and this year is 5106th year of Kalyug.
It was on February 18th 3102 BC; that the Lord Krishna breathed his last on the banks of the river Hiran in Prabhas Patan, after living 125 years, seven months and six days, he died at 14:27:30 hours.
We must celebrate his birthday like we celebrate our birthday, inviting our friends and family and not the political parties and sponsors!!!
Let the Dahi Handi be a private affair and not the public!!! At least we must try and avoid donating money for any religious institutes, to bring back the faith & purity into our religions.
