Krishna is the son of Devaki and Vasudeva Anakadundubhi, and his birthday is celebrated as Janmashtami by Hindus. Krishna was born into a tumultuous environment. It was a time when oppression was common, freedom was forbidden, evil was everywhere, and his uncle, King Kansa, was threatening his life. Soon after Krishna's birth in Mathura, his father Vasudeva Anakadundubhi took him across the Yamuna to Gokul to care for Vasudeva's brother and sister-in-law, Nanda, and Yashoda. Along with Krishna, Nag Shesha Balarama's incarnation appeared on Earth as Krishna's elder brother, the son of Rohini, Vasudeva's first wife.


People observe Janmashtami fast, recite religious hymns of Krishna Prem and wake up at night to remember this story. The forms of Krishna are dressed in new clothes after their midnight bath before being placed in the cradle. After that, the worshipers break their fast by distributing food and sweets. To depict Krishna's journey to their homes, women put small footprints outside their front doors and kitchens as they march towards their homes.
