Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi on the occasion of Janmashtami, offered prayers and swing the cradle of Balkrishna at Iskcon temple in Ahmedabad.
He said that message of Bhagavad Gita is inspirational even today for all from epoch-maker like Mahatma Gandhi to common man.
He said that new generation is into celebrating 'friendship day' under the influence of western culture, but Krishna and Sudama showed a piece of truest friendship to the world. Gujarat should initiate in celebrating the friendship of Krishna and Sudama to immortalize it, he suggested.
