Janmashtami on Monday
The Hindu community of the country will observe Janmashtami, marking the birth of Lord Krishna, on Monday.

Different social, cultural and religious organisations have chalked out elaborate programmes to observe Janmashtami.

President Abdul Hamid will host a reception at Bangabhaban marking the day, reports UNB.

Meanwhile, the President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in separate messages greeted the members of Hindu community on the occasion of Janmashtami.

The day is a public holiday.

Hindu community members will bring out processions in the capital, divisional cities and district towns displaying the eventful life of Krishna and hold other programmes on the occasion.

According to Hindu religion, Lord Vishnu incarnated in the universe as Lord Krishna in the prison of Raja Kangsa on this day, the eighth of “Shukla Pakkha” (bright fortnight) in the month of Bengali calendar Bhadra in Dwapara Yuga in order to protect “Dharma” from the hands of devils.

Sri Krishna was born to Devaki and her husband Vasudeva in Mathura to which Krishna’s parents belonged.
