We all know the strong bondage and  friendship between Krishna and Sudhama, and how,  by giving just a handful of  Poha ( Flat rice), Sudhama was able to get all the riches of the world. 
                                      When Bhakthi enters Food                   
                                             It becomes Prasaadh.
Today is Gokulashtami, Janmashtami, Krishna Jayanthi.....be it any name....today is the great day when Lord Krishna was born...and in his own words, from Bhagavad Gita

Parithranaaya sadhunam, Vinaashaya chathushkruthaam
 Dharma samsthapanarthaya, Sambavami Yuge Yuge.."

" To root out  evil, to annihilate miscreants and to uplift good and the virtues, I am born again and again in every Yuga".
 I humbly dedicate this post to Lord Shri Krishna.
