Janmashtami: If Lord Krishna Was Around Today

“Whenever dharma declines and the purpose of life is forgotten, I manifest myself on earth. I am born in every age to protect the good, to destroy evil, and to reestablish dharma.”

-Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita

Sometimes I wonder, if Krishna, who was a friend, a devotee of love, a leader, a harbinger and a wise man, was alive today; what would have happened?

Certainly, he would have updated to the contemporary world right?

He would have posted his pictures on Instagram, updated his Facebook profile regularly and would have discussed all social and political issues via Twitter. And to reach to all his devotees, he would have mailed all his actions to them via Gmail where they would be present in his CC list.

Instead of going around Yashoda for makkhan (butter), he would have wanted mayonnaise and would have shared all his delicious meals on his Instagram stories.

Even amidst all this adaptation of technology, his values and moral would have remained on the same beliefs of righteousness and duty. We would have seen him standing by all women in need as he rescued Draupadi from the manhandling by the Kauravas. Another thing that would have never changed would be his friendship with Sudama; he would still share the same bond of friendship with him, because his heart was unadulterated enough to do this.

Lord Krishna has always loved all his devotees and has been loved unequivocally by them; he has always supported purity and truth. Even back then, without all our social media platforms, he had his own style of communication and leadership. The best part about him was that he believed in democracy. Democracy in that time? Yes, for every small or big decision he wanted everyone to stamp, either ‘approved’ or ‘disapproved’ and the disapproved decision would be discarded.

Krishna, in today’s world, would be addressing each problem with a perfect strategic resolution. He was an ocean of knowledge and his knowledge would have helped this world to win ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ for sure. He would have been an ideal student knowing everything without the incessant aid of Google.

True political, social and economic power will come to the world only if Lord Krishna, having a heart of gold, being an adviser, a great friend, a respecting person and a courageous man would come and recreate this world with a new aim of life.

Lord Krishna stays alive in our hearts forever, blessing us with love, kindness, and faith. If only we find the Krishna within us, we will be able to bring a new sunrise in our world, and resurrect all the good things we have lost around us.

“As they approach me, so I receive them.”

“All paths, Arjuna, lead to me.

I am the beginning, middle, and end of creation.”
