Krishna- The God Who Lived as Man

Hema Malini releases Krishna- The God Who Lived as Man on Janmashtami Day.

For many years now Hema Malini has been performing a Krishna ballet on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami at Isckon Temple, Juhu.Last year she performed Yashoda Krishna and this year was Radha Krishna choreographed by Bhushan Lakhandri and music composed by Ravindra Jain.

On this auspicious occasion she released Bhawana Somaaya's English translation of Krishna- The God who Lived as Man from Kaajal Oza Vaidya's book in Gujarati.


Two years ago, Somaaya did an authorised biography on the actress which was released by Lal Krishna Advani in Delhi.

Krishna-The God Who Lived as Man is published by Pustak Mahal and this is the third edition in less than two years.


The river was in high tide and the footprints of the Yadavas were more or less washed away. Big waves came rushing to the shore and wiped away some more footprints…

Suddenly Rukmini discovered a familiar footprint and sat beside it…. Her eyes brimmed over with tears…. These were the footprints her hair locks drooped over when she knelt at her Lord`s feet every morning…. These were the footprints she worshipped with chandan…. The footprints of her Lord… of Sri Krishna…! They were deeply immersed in the sand. The impression engraved in the sand was filled with water.

Rukmini`s streaming tears were making an offering in the water-filled footprints.

Daruk arrived and stood beside her….

He looked startled. He could not believe how the footprints filled to the brim with water could contain Rukmini` tears without spilling over. What was further surprising was that not a single tear had dropped out of the carved footprint….

It was not just Krishna… even his footprints were accepting of everyone….
