According to Hindu Mythology, Lord Krishna is the human incarnation of Lord Vishnu and was born to kill the evil king of Mathura, Kansa. He was born to Kansa’s sister ,Devaki. Krishna was born on the eighth (Ashtami) day of the dark fortnight in the Bhadrapada month (August–September) in Mathura and was Devaki and Vasudeva’s son.
A priest had declared that the 8th child of Devaki and Vasudeva will ultimately kill Kansa.
Hence Kansa had imprisoned both Devaki and Vasudeva and had killed all their first 6 children.
Entire India celebrate this festival with lots of love.
