While I was waiting for fight in lounge, a young boy came to me hurriedly and asked if I know Krishna. I answered him in affirmative. His quest of learning impressed me much and that is why, I am reproducing what I described him about Lord Krishna till we parted.

It is over five thousand years ago that Lord Krishna who is known as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu who is is identified as a historical individual who participated in the events of the Mahābhārata.who is often described as an infant or boy playing a flute as in the Bhagavata Purana or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita was born in Mathura, India to Vasudeva and Devaki in the jail cell of the tyrant Kansa. The place of His birth is known as Sri Krishna’ Birth Place. As per astrological & mythological belief, Lord Krishna was born on the day of Janamashtmi either on July 18, 3233 BCE or July 21,3233 BCE. He belonged to the royal family of Mathura, and was the eighth son born to the princess Devaki, and her husband Vasudeva. Mathura was the capital to which Krishna's parents Vasudeva and Devaki belonged. The king Kansa, Devaki's brother had ascended the throne by imprisoning his father, King Ugrasena. Afraid of a prophecy that predicted his death at the hands of Devaki's eighth son, Kansa had locked the couple into a prison cell. After Kansa killed the first six children, and Devaki's apparent miscarriage of the seventh which was actually a secret transfer of the infant to Rohini as Balram, Krishna was born.He appeared with his brother Balram in response to the demigods' prayers for protection from the widespread influence of demonic administration on earth. Lord Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as described by the Vedas. The Vedas are the eternal truths of life originating in India that have been passed down from time immemorial originally through oral reception, and more recently through written scripture in the Sanskrit language. Though there are many different religions in the world each having their own name for God, God is still one. There isn’t one God for Hindus and another for Christians and Jews.Even in the Vedic literatures, God has many names and many different incarnations and expansions. Lord Krishna is the original of all other expansions. In those ancient days, the demigods and demons had been at war in the heavens. When the demons were defeated by the demigods, they decided to instead attack this planet earth. Thus, they invaded the earth by discretely taking birth as princes in powerful royal and as the earth became overrun by militaristic activities of these kingly demons, the demigods including the Earth goddess earnestly sought Lord Vihnu's protection. Seeing the deteriorating social and political conditions and hearing the prayers of the demigods, the all-compassionate Supreme Lord Sri Krishna decided to descend for the benefit of all. The Supreme Lord descends from time to time in this material world to reestablish the teachings of the Vedas. In His Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krishna promises: "Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion--at that time I descend Myself. To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear milleniumm after millenium." Historically, Lord Krishna appeared on the midnight of the 8th day of the dark half of the month of Sravana. This corresponds to July 19th 3228 BC. He exhibited His pastimes for a little over 125 years and dissappeared on February 18th 3102 BC on the new moon night of Phalguna. The great scholar like Srila Vishvanatha Chakravarti had clearly outlined Lord Krishna's activities in this way: the first three years and four months were spent in Gokula, then equal lengths of time in Vmdavana and Nandagram, eighteen years and four months in Mathura, and finally ninety-six years and eight months in Dvaraka totalling one hundred twenty five years of manifest pastimes. He grew up as the son of His foster parents Nanda and Yasoda in the midst of the idyllic beauty of Gokula, Vrindavana, and Nandagram. Not only did he killed numerous demons, but also performed His famous Rasa dance. Krishna enjoyed the dance of love (Ras Lila) with the Gopis many of whom are expansions of His own internal energies. The supreme gopi known as Radharani is the object of Krishna's highest devotion. This beautiful dance would occur in the autumn season at night under a full moon when Lord Krishna would captivate the young gopis with the extraordinary music of his flute . These esoteric pastimes constitute the most confidential expression of divinity ever revealed. To commemorate the birth anniversary of the Lord, Rasa Lila or the dramatic performances of the life of Krishna are performed by devotees. Colorful Rasleelas (plays) are a major attraction which depict various phases and acts of Lord Krishna's life. The whole of Braj is the leela place of Krishna but more memorable places are Barsana, Vrindaban and Govardhan. Barsana is the place where the sovereign of Gopis’ hearts, and the soul of Krishna, Radha, always lived there. Vrindaban is famous because maharas leela happened over there, and Govardhan is the place where Krishna did most of His playful leelas.They were classified as Braj Lilia, Nikunj Lila and Dwarika Lila. They revealed such loving Lilas that fascinated even Lord Siva, Goddess Parvati & Goddess Lakshmi Rasa Lila took place on a beautiful night, when the ‘Gopis’ (milkmaids) of Vrindavan stealthily left their houses to go to the jungle on hearing the sweet sound of Lord Krishna’s flute. Lord Krishna then danced with gopis throughout the night. Rasa Lila is based on the legendary love story of Radha Krishna. The loving interplay between God and the human soul is interpreted through Lord Krishna and his love play with the Gopis. The blissful love of Radha for Krishna can be seen as the soul’s wish to be one with the Almighty. Though Radha never married Krishna, her love for him was so complete and pure that even today we worship Krishna along with Radha. This love story has been called ‘Rasa’ by the great Rishi Vyasa. During Lord Krishna’s time, there was a great war that took place between the Pandava and Kaurava dynasties on the battlefield of Kurukshetra in India. Arjuna was one of the leading warriors for the Pandavas. Since Arjuna was Lord Krishna’s good friend and cousin, the Lord served as his charioteer during the war. Prior to the war’s commencement, Arjuna felt hesitant to fight, and so Lord Krishna stopped and gave him a discourse on the meaning of life. Their discussion has been chronicled in the famous book, Bhagavad-Gita.Later on Krishna had moved to Dwarka where he along with his brother Balram remained for ninety six tears and ruled and thus he became popular as Dwarkadhish. He had wonderful pastimes there, including expanding into 16,108 forms and creating 16,108 palaces for His 16,108 queens. In Vrindavana, Lord Krishna lived as a simple cowherd boy, but in Dvaraka He lived as a wealthy prince. Krishna had eight principal wives and total of sixteen thousand one hundred eight wives, most were captured from Narakasura, who had forcibly kept them in his harem, but all of them are considered to be incarnations of Goddess Lakshmi. At a festival, a fight broke out between the Yadavs who exterminated each other. His elder brother Balarama then gave up his body using Yoga. Krishna retired into the forest and sat under a tree in meditation. While the Mahabharata narrates the story that a hunter named Jara mistook his partly visible left foot for a deer and shot an arrow wounding him mortally; while Krishna's soul ascended to heaven, his mortal body was cremated by Arjuna As per epics, Lord Krishna's disappearance marks the end of Dvapara Yuga and the start of Kali Yuga, which is dated to February 17/18, 3228 BCE.
