‘The Life of Lord Krishna’ by Suhradam House

Suhradam House had the privilege and pleasure of celebrating Janmashtami – Lord Krishna’s birthday and depicts some important aspects of the most illustrious and enlightened man of the era- the Lord Krishna. The whole week was celebrated on the value “The life of Lord Krishna”.

The first two days of Suhradam House assembly was dedicated to the childhood of Lord Krishna. The childhood of Lord Krishna was spent in Gokul, Vrundavan. The foster parents Nand-Yashoda nurtured him with great zeal, love and care. As a child he killed many evils and demons and saved the people of Gokul from the clutches of Kans.

A video was also shown on the incidences in Sandeepanee Ashram where his quality of obedience was well depicted as he was the most obedient disciple of his Guru.

Then, the next day was dedicated on the rare quality of true friendship. Sudama was from a poor family and Lord Krishna belonged to the royal family, but this difference in social status did not come in the way of his friendship. As they lost contact over the years, Krishna became the King of Dwarika while Sudama lived as a humble impoverished villager. Sometimes later, Sudama remembered their friendship and thought of seeking help from Lord Krishna. Though initially reluctant to go to his friend for help, Sudama finally goes with some beaten rice as a token of love and also that he had nothing else to offer him. Lord Krishna was greatly pleased to see his old friend. He treats him royally with much love. Overwhelmed by all this, Sudama forgets to ask him for help. But Lord Krishna realizes his friend’s need and grants him with everything he desires. A video was shown in the Jr. as well as the Sr. assembly on it.

The topic for the soft board chosen by Suhradam House was very informative. It was the seven natural wonders and seven industrial wonders. The students decorated the board very artistically. Each picture was hand-painted by the artists of the house.

Another important aspect was that of a saviour of the Universe. Throughout his life, Lord Krishna kept on awakening and evoking everyone against injustice. Lord Krishna had taken birth to abolish the filth of injustice from the Earth.

The week ended with a melodious and heart-warming dance drama performed by the enthusiastic group of Suhradam House. The dance included all the phases of the dynamic personality-from childhood to the charioteer of Arjun in the Mahabharata. The entire Suhradam house students’ had put in a lot of efforts to make the event successful.

Historically, Lord Krishna occupies an extremely important and significant position in the Great War Mahabharata.

All through the week, children learnt numerous qualities of Lord Krishna like friendship, opposing injustice, being obedient to the Gurus, guide and much more. The thoughts and speeches were shared by students of various grades in both the assembly.
