Today in India is the Hindu festival in honor of the birth of Lord Krishna. It is called Srikrishna Jayanti (meaning long live Sri Krishna) or Krishna Janmashtami. It is a daylong celebration in which an idol of Krishna is decorated. Followers make sweets that are then placed at the base of the idol along with favorite fruits. The day ends with prayers.
