Battle for Blessings
Here the devotees have gathered in thousands to seek the blessed food which was offered to Lord Krishna. It is a frenzy to catch a single grain of the divine food. They strongly believe that upon keeping that blessing in their house they would not have a dearth of food grains. Govardhan puja or Annakut or Annakoot (translated as “a mountain of food”) as it is also known, is a Hindu festival, celebrated to remember the day when Lord Krishna defeated Lord Indra.
