Shri Krishna Janmashtami aaj: Shri Krishna Janmashtami today

Kanpur Dehat: In Dwapar Yuga, even though Lord Shri Krishna was freed from the imprisonment of Mama Kansa from birth, but in Kali Yuga, for 20 years the Lord is imprisoned in the storehouse of Shivli Kotwali of Kanpur countryside. Right on Janmashtami they get freedom from imprisonment for a day. The police personnel take out the idols and after worshiping them, lock them up again in the mall.

On March 12, 2002, three large Ashtadhatu idols of Shri Krishna, Radha, Balram and two small idols of Laddu Gopal and Radha were stolen from the former Radha-Krishna temple in the city of Shivli. Temple priest Alok Dutt had filed a report to Shivli Kotwali. The police arrested the thieves a week later and recovered the idols. Since then, the idols of God, who are trapped in legal entanglements, have been locked up in the Kotwali malkhana, while the thieves were released on bail after a few days.

Every year in Janmashtami, police personnel take out the idols from the warehouse and worship them wearing new clothes. Alok Dutt says he requested the release of the idols in Kotwali and the court several times but due to legal entanglements the idols could not be installed in the temple. He is trying to get the idols released somehow. Kotwal Vinod Kumar Mishra said that due to a legal tactic the idols could not be released and installed in the temple. This time too, on the anniversary of the birth of Lord Shri Krishna, the idols will be taken out of the mall and worshipped.
