Janmashtami 2016: In a pleasant reminder of what good community living and religious harmony is all about, a Muslim family in Kanpur has become an icon of communal amity due to its habit of celebrating Janmashtami, the birth of Lord Krishna, for 30 years now. Janmashtami has been celebrated by Dr S. Ahmed and his family consisting of his wife and 3 children for the last 30 years at their home, including today. And they do not do it cursorily. They celebrate Janmashtami with full pomp and splendour and in fact perform all rituals that are required according to scriptures. The Lord Krishna pedestal is very vibrant and colourful and all those who come, leave impressed.
