Surat prepares for Janmashtami celebrations
Surat, Aug 23 (ANI): Preparations are in full swing for Janmashtami, the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna, in Surat, Gujarat, which will be observed on August 25. People from all walks of life are enthusiastically involved in preparations for the festival. A decorated pandal or stage has been installed at the ISKCON Temple in Surat ahead of the festival. The temple has been observing and celebrating Janmashtami in a traditional way for the past 32 years with “pandals” based on different themes. A key feature of Janmashtami celebrations is the game of “Dahi Handi”. In Surat, about 100 Govindas of the Sukhanand Vyayam Shala located in the city’s Bhagal area have been practising forming human pyramids to break the “Dahi Handi” positioned at the top.
