Happy Krishna Janmashtami...

On the eve of Krishna Janmashtami it is customary to paint Krishna's footprints right from the entrance of the house to the prayer room, symbolising the arrival of Krishna.
My cute Krishna idol posing with a beautiful orchid flower:-) Usually a long list of sweets & savouries are prepared at home, but I guess mine would probably be a very small list;-)

Do check out my pics on Flickr for updates

Wishing all of you a very Happy Krishna Janmashtami!

Yes very lovely pictures indeed. The serenity and simplicity of your blog is what appeals to me the most about your blog. The fact that you do celebrate all these things with your kid makes you a very special mom. You have created a home cause anyone can just build a house.

All your pictures are celebration of colours and are so entizing. Its wondeful of you to share this with the rest of the world is even a greater gift.
നിറങ്ങളുടെ രാജകുമാരിയുടെ തേരോട്ടം, പരിചയക്കുറവുകൊണ്ടും... വാക്കുകളുടെ ദുര്‍ലഭം കൊണ്ടും ഇഷ്ടക്കെടുകള്‍ ഉണ്ടായാല്‍ പൊറുക്കുക, ഇതുവായിക്കാന്‍ സാധിക്കുന്നില്ല എങ്കില്‍ എനിക്കൊരു കത്തിടുക.. ഈമെയില്‍.
