The birth of lord Krishna is a huge celebration all over India. Devotion to this Hindu God is very apparent from the day-long fasts by millions of people on this day. Also popular is the traffic-halting "dahi-handi", where men clamber onto each other's backs to create a human pyramid high enough to smash an earthenware pot suspended high up in the middle of the town square. Imagine, just for an instant, that the person perched right on top slips, and slides slowly down his compatriots' shoulders. Remind you of something? The free-falling Indian Rupee? Let's hope that one year from now, we are looking at a stronger Rupee, down from its dizzying heights of 68.80/-. Happy Janmashtami!
Hi! I'm one of the founding members of Sanskriti Lifestyle, and have absolutely loved our journey from small, tucked-away little gift store to our new avatar of sprawling bungalows dotting our beautiful gardens. Our philosophy is to put a smile on our customers' face, as they stroll through the colonial bungalows and embark on a discovery of our (very!) diverse home decor and furniture. We want to help our customers create their unique living space, either through our beautiful products, or through our style tips and ideas. Follow this blog. Team Sanskriti hopes you will enjoy it!
