Everyone is well acquainted with the most famous & well-known festival of India which occurs in the month of Shravana - Sri Krishna Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. People from various communities around the world celebrate this special festival with great pomp & jubilation.

This festival is more commonly celebrated with an abundant preparation of sweetmeats mostly made of milk & other milk products such as paneer, yoghurt, cream, butter milk, etc. All these delicious sweetmeats are prepared with great devotion & their opulent offerings are made to Lord Krishna. The reason why a lot of milk sweets are offered to Krishna on his birthday is because, he is most famous as "Makhan Chor" - the Cute Little Butter Thief as a child. He performed his most sweet pastimes as a cowherd boy, tending & rearing cows, hence he is also called as "Gopal". The general populace usually celebrates this festival by forming human pyramids & breaking pots filled with yoghurt & butter.
