The festival of Janmashtami, which marks the birth of Lord Krishna, is being celebrated in different parts of the country today. At Mathura and Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, Janmashtami will be celebrated with all the rituals but the devotees will not be allowed entry to the temples due to CoronaVirus. However, arrangements have been made to live stream the puja for devotees.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have greeted people on the occasion.

In a message, President said, Lord Shri Krishna inspires us to establish a society that is just, sensitive and compassionate. Mr Kovind said, Lord Krishna’s message of Karmayoga is a call to focus on our responsibilities rather than caring for rewards. This spirit has been evident in the working of all our corona warriors who act at the forefront of our fight against Corona, he said.

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has greeted people on the occasion of Janmashtami.  In a tweet Mr Naidu said, the tales of the young Krishna’s mischiefs and his heroic acts have captivated our collective imagination since time immemorial.
