President, Vice President greet people on Janmashtami

New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday greeted people on the occasion of Janmashtami.
In a message, the President said, ‘Greetings on Janmashtami! Lord Krishna’s message of Karmayoga is a call to focus on our responsibilities rather than caring for rewards. This spirit has been evident in the working of all our Corona warriors. May Lord Krishna bless everyone with good health and prosperity.’
Greeting people on the occasion, the Vice President said, ‘My warm greetings and good wishes to people of our country on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami, the celebration of the birth of Lord Krishna. The tales of the young Krishna’s mischiefs and his heroic acts have captivated our collective imagination since time immemorial.
The eternal message of performing our duties sincerely without attachment to results, elaborated by Lord Krishna in the ‘Bhagwad Gita’ has been a source of inspiration for the entire humanity. Janmashtami, which is usually celebrated across the country with great fervour and gaiety, would have to be celebrated in a modest manner this year due to Covid-19. ‘
‘On this auspicious day, let us all resolve to perform our duties faithfully and to seek the path of righteousness. May this festival bring peace, harmony and prosperity to everyone,’the vice president said.
