Janmasthami 2019 Celebrations Galore at Banasthali

Janmasthami 2019 Celebrations Galore at Banasthali

The rich ethnic diversity of India truly comes alive when the Banasthali campus celebrates various festivals spread over the year. During these celebrations, the students and faculty of Banasthali add a spectrum of colours and gaiety to campus life and indeed rise above caste and creed and develop mutual respect for all religions. With over 16000 students coming from different parts of India, the 850 acre Banasthali campus itself is a mini India echoing the lines of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore in National anthem “Panjaba-Sindhu-Gujarata-Maratha Dravida-Utkala-Banga.”

Janmashtami also called Gokulashtami which marks the birth of Krishna an avtar of Lord Vishnu usually falls in the month of Aug – Sep every year and is calculated by the traditional Hindu lunar calendar as the eighth day of the dark fortnight Krishna Paksh in the month of Bhadra. Krishna not only inspired many followers during his lifetime but also beyond it. Even before the internet arrived in full force, by the 1980s there were around 3000 translations of the Bhagavad Gita in almost 50 languages.

On 23 Aug 2019 Janmasthami day, Banasthalites definitely gave dahi- handi a miss, only to replace that tradition with the aesthetically appealing and visually mesmerizing decorated tableaus popularly referred as ‘Jhankis’. Students dressed up in beautiful attires and gave a glimpse of Krishna's eventful life which began with his birth in a jail to the phase where he took upon the most prestigious role of his life of being a mentor, a guide to a confused Arjun. The Tableau depicting Lord Krishna lifting Goverdhan Hill to protect his near and dear from torrential rains caused by the anger of Indra considered the King of Devas was a great attraction.

The tableaus of Radha and Krishna and Vrindavan had everyone mesmerized. Kans Vadh killing of Mathura King Kans by Lord Krishna was very well displayed. The tableaus depicting Lord Krishna in Gurukul with his acharya Sandipani Muni, the Draupadi Vastraharan and Sudama visit to meet Lord Krishna had all visitors spending extra minutes to admire the presentations The tableau depicting Vishwaroopa by Lord Krishna was awe inspiring indeed. It goes without saying that the tableau depicting Gita Updesh was a star attraction and the message for students was the very last shloka which was by Sanjay to Dhritarashtra which in essence means that the winning combo is Krishna and Arjun implying Knowledge and Skills.

It is also customary for Radio Banasthali which is the first community radio station of Rajasthan to broadcast special programs on the occasion of Janamashtmi. Many students observed fast on the occasion and the special menu in the hostels include mouth water harvesting sweets to mark the occasion. Students and faculty who took part in the Janmashtami celebrations at Banasthali left with beaming faces and pride that they were indeed part of an institution which is a shining jewel in the crown among the institutions not only in India today but across the globe.
