'Shubh-Janmashtami'

It is Janmashtami today, Lord Krishna's birthday.

This is 'Krishno-thakur' that used to be in my 'thamma'/grand-ma's puja room,
now He is with us, here in Geneva. I think He was brought home from Vrindavan,
along with brother 'Bishnu-thakur' (Lord Vishnu).


This is one of the very first CDs that Arnab gifted me when
we had just known each other for a little while.
It is has a collection of bhajans (devotional songs)
his voice weaves magic!
Listen to this song (one of my favs from this album):

'Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare'
