Geetanjali Mishra Aka Rajesh from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan Tells How She Used To Celebrate Janmashtami In Her Hometown

Janmashtami is joyously commemorated to honour the birth of Lord Krishna. This festival is embraced by people worldwide, each observing it uniquely. Geetanjali Mishra Aka Rajesh from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan provide glimpses into the festivities unfolding in her hometown.

Geetanjali Mishra, Rajesh from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, shares, “The Janmashtami Festival is widely celebrated, but its grandeur reaches even greater heights in Uttar Pradesh. I have personally participated in these festivities in the past. Numerous individuals flock to the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple in Mathura to partake in the celebrations.

'My grandmother used to make special prasads'


Geetanjali says, “The city comes alive with performances of Krishna's Rasleelas by amateur artists. Some of these enactments are so captivating that devotees are charmed by their devotion to Lord Krishna. In my hometown of Varanasi, significant celebrations were also held. My grandmother would make special prasads like Malai Peda, Charnamrit, and Dhaniya Panjiri, offered as a tribute to Lord Krishna.

The beautiful actress says further, “Subsequently, we would visit temples to distribute these homemade offerings and engage in the bhajans sung there. I even requested a Radha costume from my mother during childhood, a delight I relished wearing. May Lord Krishna bestow love and concord upon us all. Wishing you a joyful Janmashtami.”
