    Festivity has gripped the nation on Krishna Janmashtami, which is observed on the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. While worshiping Lord Krishna is a big ritual, Dahi Handi festival is also a key attraction in Maharashtra and across India. Tribute To Krishna Aug 30, 2013 | SRK witnesses breaking of dahi matki first time in 22 years in Mumbai Aug 28 | Hema Malini's advice to other women: We're not as evolved as Draupadi for Krishna to protect us Lord Krishna, an Avatar of Lird Vishnu, was born exactly at the stroke of midnight. Lord Krishna took birth to kill Kansa, the wicked king of Mathura. Though Krishna Janmashtami is being observed on August 18, the Janmashtami tithi (timing) begins on 5.55 pm on August 17 and ends on 6.06am on Monday. No grains should be consumed during Krishna Janmashtami fasting until the fast is broken on next day after Sunrise.

    Dahi handi should be banned. Today at least 20 children were injured by falling. One girl even broke her spine.
