Happy Janmashtami 2020: India will celebrate Janmashtami on Wednesday to mark the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Usually, the festival is celebrated on a really large scale in some parts of the country – with events like children dressing up like Radha and Krishna in schools, Dahi handi competitions and more. However, this year things are a bit different. Most public places remain closed due to coronavirus outbreak and people are also taking necessary precautions to stay safe.
In these strange times, there is no better way to express yourself than digital platforms. You can still share your wishes with friends and family without physically meeting them. And, what can be better than WhatsApp Stickers. The feature is highly popular among WhatsApp users and allows you express yourself in a unique way.

Meanwhile, the Punjab government said Monday it will start distributing smartphones to students for free on August 12. To avoid large gatherings, the launch of the distribution scheme will be organised at 26 different locations in Chandigarh and Punjab. Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said the government has chosen the auspicious occasion of ‘Janmashtami’ to launch the scheme.
“Not more than 15 students studying in that town/district will be invited at each location for handing over the smartphones,” said a government statement. The state government had already announced to give smartphones to all boys and girls studying in Class 12 of the government schools across the state.
