Janmashtami 2k19 So this year was super special, since my daughter has started understanding things, and is so full of curiosity like all toddlers her age!!
When she saw me decorating our small temple and preparing for laddu Gopal's jhoola, she asked me what it was all about!!!
To make things simpler for her, I narrated to her a small Krishna story, minus all the elements which her small mind would be confused at.
We started off with how Krishna was a playful and naughty kid, but very helpful and kind at the same time, hence was loved by all. His antics, love for flute, and butter.... Which gave him energy to fight with all evil demons and monsters..
She sat, listening wide eyed, and asked me, so will I get energy to fight off monsters too if I have butter?
Such innocence kids have!!!
She absolutely loved dressing up as Radha to school and told me how her friends broke the matki and everyone was given chocolates.😄
And the best thing to happen was, she telling me to dress her up as Krishna too, and I'm so looking forward to doing it soon!!
My little girl, can be demure as Radha, and brave like Krishna as well.
She taught me that qualities and traits aren't limited to gender.
She wants to be brave like Krishna, and to be loved by all. Celebrating our own self is so important, and everyday, we should strive to make ourselves a bit more better than we used to be yesterday!!!
