Bal Krishna On Gokulashtami



Mumbai, 2012


A boy dressed up as Bal Krishna looks on as visitors crowd available balconies in old buildings on Ranade Road, Dadar, for a glimpse of Govindas girding up to battle rival groups for a crack at the Dahi Handi on Krishna Janmashtami today.

Innocent Krishna. How he changed when he grew up!

Anil, Beautiful picture, nice to see live glimpse of Krishna janmashtami from India, specially Mumbai. Boy is perfectly dressed as Krishna, there is one more little Krishna in the Balcony.

From Blue light in the left most corner, I think this little Krishna is standing on top of the Police car.

Thanks for sharing.

Dr.Antony: He sure did change as he grew up.

Usha: Thank you. Mumbai is where the Dahi Handi action is. A group of Govindas broke a record of sorts by creating a 9-tier human pyramid yesterday.

You're right. There's one more little Krishna sitting on the balcony ledge.
