|Aditya Is Bal Gopal|
Aditya is a lucky boy. He got a good opportunity to act as Lord Krishna at a holy congregation.
A week long Bhagvad Saptaah is being held at Mani Nagar’s Radha Krishna Temple. During the Saptaah, various event of Lord Krishna’s life are celebrated. On Sunday, the birth of Lord Krishna was to be celebrated and Aditya was given the opportunity to play the baby Krishna. Aditya was required to act as the new born Lord Krishna. He had to sleep in the basket and Vasudev would carry him.
We reached the place at 7 pm and Aditya was made to dress like baby Krishna. Unfortunately, the event was running late and after some time Aditya was uncomfortable in those costumes and heat. We tried to keep him in good spirits. I was tense and nervous – my son’s first public performance ! I recalled my first stage appearance in school.
However, Aditya was very comfortable when his turn came. In fact, after some time, he actually slept as Vasudev carried him. He woke up as people started to worship him and touch at his feet. After all, he was Lord Krishna and all people worshipped him !
We bow down to the Lord Krishna with all humility. We are grateful to Him that Aditya could act as Bal Gopal. At the same time, we are grateful to the organizers for this opportunity to Aditya.
