Hindus across the world are celebrating the birth of Sri Lord Krishna today.  Yesterday Indian President Pranab Mukherjee marked the eve of festivities by saying in part:
"Let us, on this sacred day, recall the teachings of Lord Krishna which have for centuries been an inspiration to us to follow the path of virtue and righteousness in thought, word and deed," ... "May Lord Krishna's noble message of 'Nishkama karma' or duty without thought of reward, motivate all of us to work in unity and with selfless dedication for peace, prosperity and progress in our country."

I wish my Hindu sisters and brothers a joyous Janmashtami Krishna.  We are one world, one people, and we belong everywhere.
