Trivandrum: The annual Sree Krishna Jayanthi pageantry  gives local children the chance to attire themselves like their favourite Lord.

Krishna is often described and portrayed as an infant or young boy playing a flute or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita. The stories of Krishna appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and theological traditions. They portray him in various perspectives: a God-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and the supreme being. He is also called as Govinda and Gopala. (Source: Wikipedia)

Akhil captured some candid moments of the pageantry that was flagged off from Palayam Ganapathy temple and ended at the Putharikandam Maidanam.
