A video greeting for Janmashtami. Every year on the eighth day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight), India celebrates the birthday of Lord Krishna, the Hindu deity and the eight incarnation of Lord Vishnu - the Supreme Being.
It is one of the biggest religious festivals that devotees celebrate with deep spirituality. The name of this festival changes according to the region where it is celebrated. Some of its names include Krishnashtami, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti and Sree Jayanthi.
Gummana Karayadire is a composition in Kannada language by Purandara Dasa – the 16th century Carnatic music composer. It is all about the conversation between Krishna and his mother Yasodha. Rajashree Warrier, an acclaimed Bharatanatyam performer gives this composition an aesthetic appeal.
