via published on November 29, 2009

If there is one Sangh inspired organisation which has crossed all barriers of caste, religion, politics etc. and has acquired total acceptance from the public and media of Kerala, it is undoubtedly Balagokulam, the organisation for children. Although the Balagokulam conducts Gita classes, story sessions on epics, puranas etc. the crowning glory of its presence is the thousands of Shobha yatras and Maha Shobha yatras it takes out on Krishna Jayanthi day in which about 15 lakh children dressed in attires of Krishna, Balaram, Kuchela, Gopas, Gopikas etc. carry out massive processions in every nook and corner of Kerala. Virtually, Kerala gets converted into Gokul, Dwaraka, Mathura etc. and we get transformed into a glorious era. Elephants in full regalia, women dressed in Kerala attire carrying multicoloured umbrellas, traditional music instruments like Panchavadyam, floats depicting scenes from the life of the Lord are the other high lights of the procession
