One can’t have enough of the beauty of Lord Krishna. We, the seekers, have engulfed his beauty and persona into us, as we surrender ourselves completely to the God of compassion, tenderness and love.

This Bharatanatyam presentation is sure to take you back in time to Vrindavan, in company of the Beautiful Lord Krishna. Krishna is known by numerous names, such as Govinda, Mukunda, Madhusudhana, Vasudeva, and Makhan chor. Another such name is "Mormukatdhari". This name was given to him because Krishna wears a peacock feather in his crown. This feather not only imparts a distinct feature to his appearance, but also enhances the beauty of his form.

But why only a peacock feather, some of us wonder! Here’s why:
