This Janmashtami, &TV artists – Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi) and Rajesh (Kamna Pathak) from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan; Anjani Mata (Sneha Wagh) from Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram; Tiwari Ji (Rohitashv Gaur) from Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, Santoshi Maa (Gracy Singh) from Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, Gudiya (Sarika Bahroliya) and Guddu (Karam Rajpal) from Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari are all excited to welcome Lord Krishna home and celebrate the festival with great fervour with their family at home.
Daroga Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi), &TV's Happu Ki Ultan Paltan shares, "Every year during Janmashtami we prepare a small cradle for Lord Krishna and decorate it with flowers and ornaments. Sweet delicacies like Makhan Mishri, Kheer, Meethi Mathri and Gujiya are made as an offering to Nanhe Kanha as prasad after which the family relish these delicacies together. Earlier, my son, Dishu, used to dress up as Kanhna and used to enjoy all the attention and the treats prepared at home."
Recalling a fond childhood memory, Anjani Mata (Sneha Wagh), &TV's Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram shares, "Janmashtami holds an important place in my life as I have always loved Lord Krishna. I must be four or five years old and was in a mela on Janmashtami when I saw a boy as old as me, dressed as Lord Krishna, which made me love the Lord even more. As while growing up, I started reading a lot on him and his teachings that helped me a lot to overcome hurdles and left a positive impact. Wishing all the little Krishna's and their family a very Happy and Prosperous Janmashtami this year!"
Rajesh (Kamna Pathak), &TV's Happu Ko Ultan Paltan shares, "An individual beliefs make them kind of person they become. By instilling positive thoughts in our everyday life, aids in staying optimistic always. The teachings of Lord Krishna were ahead of its time and holds relevance even today. He had the perfect balance of mind and heart. While I will miss devouring kheer, made by mom during festivities, and also one of my most favourite, I wish this Janmashtami brings sweetness and kindness into everyone's life."
Manmohan Tiwari (Rohitashv Gaur), &TV's Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai shares, "Lord Krishna is the destroyer of evil, Janmashtami marks the presence of good and destruction of all that is evil. As a child, I used to always dress up as Nanha Kanha and used to look forward to this festival eagerly. Given the pandemic, we will be doing the puja and the food preparations at home. My only wish for everyone is that this Janmashtami, may Lord Krishna bring happiness and peace in everyone's life."
Santoshi Maa (Gracy Singh), &TV's Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein shares, "We will be doing a simple puja at home, nothing grand as such. I wish all Lord Krishna devotees a happy Janmashtami. It is a festival of fun and frolic, which also teaches us that we should always fight against the wrong. I wish everyone all the blessings of the almighty to bring joy, prosperity, and happiness in your life."
Gudiya (Sarika Bahroliya), &TV's Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari shares, "Back home in Gwalior, my mother used to take us to Lord Krishna temple to offer prayers until it eventually became a ritual. I often watched Dahi-Handi from my window and enjoyed the energetic Bollywood numbers which played on speakers. The day would not be complete without the delicious food platter prepared by mom. I will surely miss being with my family during this Janmashtami."
Guddu (Karam Rajpal), &TV's Gudiya Humari Sabhi Pe Bhari shares, "It will be quiet celebrations at home with family. The fervour of Dahi-Handi will be missed because of the pandemic. Hence, we have decided to do a small function at home. We will be celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna at midnight, followed by the puja and offering special preparation like Panjiri, Kheer, Maakhan Mishri etc. My only wish this year is that may Lord Krishna take away everyone's tensions and worries on this Janmashtami and give all the love, peace and happiness."
