Come Janmashtami, various schools in the city resemble a mini Brindavan.

And Friday was no different, as premises of a few schools teemed with little Krishnas and gopikas, who made merry coinciding with the festive occasion.

The Bloomingdale Play and Kindergarten School grounds was one such venue. Pupils dressed as Lord Krishna with a flute in their tiny hands and gopikas with colourful ‘matki’ on their heads were a sight to watch. Rendition of “happy birthday” to Lord Krishna and ‘dandiya’ marked the occasion.

The most attractive event for the children was their attempt at breaking the ‘vutti’, which they did after some fun-filled effort.

‘Naivedyam’ prepared by parents and the staff members was offered to the idol of the Lord, which was later distributed among HIV-affected children.

Competition

Janmashtami was also celebrated at the Cloth Merchant Association English Medium High School. A special competition was organised to identify the “best look alike” of Lord Krishna and gopika. Prizes were distributed to the winners. Later, all of them together broke the ‘vutti’.

Dance programmes were also organised. A six-month-old baby crawling around in the attire of Lord Krishna was the cynosure of all eyes here.
