From Wikipedia : Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी kṛṣṇa janmāṣṭamī), also known as KrishnashtamiSaatam Aatham,GokulashtamiAshtami RohiniSrikrishna JayantiSree Jayanti or sometimes simply as Janmashtami, is an annual celebration of the birth of the Hindu deity Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu.[4]

I took my 2 years old son to the temple and saw the rides which they have just put outside the temple encroached upon the roads as they always do which had actually resulted in Traffic Chaos.I love My India I said to myself.I was not surprised when I saw my son was more than happy to hop on to one of them without buying the tickets.I got the ticket for him and he started enjoying the rides alone as it was still evening and the crowds had just started to come in.

As Ruhan(My Son) was enjoying the rides , I was trying to catch up on my memory of my childhood when I used to enjoy these little rides.But something was different.I was not sure what.But I was standing and waiting for the ride to get over.As Always there are always some small kids just outside the temple who ask for money or just food.But today one kid came and asked If I could just make them enjoy the ride as well.It was a group of 5 kids.

Top post on, the community of Indian BloggersI paid for them and they enjoyed the ride alongside my son.It was just so heart touching to see how they shouted and made noises in joy,It made me smile too.I personally don't believe in charity , neither do I donate ,But I like helping and this was may the first time I paid for the underprivileged to get the kid's rides.It made me happy and I smiled from Inside.

I have decided now that Instead of doing charity and donating I will make at-least 5 kids happy on every occasion like this,I hope I am doing just the right thing.Happy Janamashtami to all.This is for the Indispire Topic When was the last time that you did something good for others and that brought a genuine smile at your face?#benevolence.And This is again a top post at Indiblogger


  1. well done! Helping always spreads warmth and smiles :-) Keep up the good work

  2. That is a great gesture, Kudos to you for coming up with that...nothing like a genuine smile from a child

  3. Reminds me of what my student recently wrote. As a child, she was pained by the sight of slum kids hovering around Diwali celebrations. While the affluent kids burst all kinds of crackers, these kids would just gaze in envy and collect half burnt sparklers, overjoyed at those leftovers. My student was moved and then on, she would collect money from the colony dwellers every Diwali, buy crackers and distribute it to the slum kids....

  4. Nice. If I may ask, though, why don't you believe in charity?

    1. I just dont feel like giving money to beggars and also to any trust.
      I just think that it will be waste.
      I try to help people by my own hands.

  5. A child's smile is worth a million.... :-)

  6. That is such a good deed you did! :)

  7. These small steps make life a wonderful journey............

  8. Very generous and thoughtful of you. I'll bet the kids will never forget what you did for them. :-)
    I hope you get many more such opportunities in life!

  9. This is so heart-warming!
    Kudos Rahul :) You made kids happy that too on Shri Krishna's b'day.
    May we all help & do such kind acts & make our world a happier & better place.
