Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari KRISHNA JANMASTMI), also known as Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanti or sometimes merely as Janmashtami, is an annual commemoration of the birth of the Hindu deity Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu.
The festival is celebrated on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) of the month of Bhadrapada (August–September; However, in both traditions it is the same day. So, we have works like Vishnudharmottara Purana saying Krishna Ashtami is in the Bhadrapada month and Skanda Purana stating that it falls in the month of Shravana) in the Hindu calendar. Rasa lila, dramatic enactments of the life of Krishna, are a special feature in regions of Mathura and Vrindavan, and regions following Vaishnavism in Manipur. While the Rasa lila re-creates the flirtatious aspects of Krishna’s youthful days, the Dahi Handi celebrate God’s playful and mischievous side, where teams of young men form human towers to reach a high-hanging pot of butter and break it. This tradition, also known as uriadi, is a major event in Tamil Nadu on Gokulashtami.
Happy Krishn Janmastmi to All! Let God Krishna Bless u all with Lots of Love and Success in your Life!
Dropbox is an excellent cloud storage service, despite it losing out to Google Drive in our recent fight.
That’s in part because Dropbox allows developers to come up with their own apps and services for you to use.
That means Dropbox can be used as more than just a file storage system. You can use the service to back up and organize important files that may be scattered all over the web, stream music, or even host a website. Using Dropbox you can do the following:
1. “Favorite” – Mark Favorite Files for Offline Reading
The favorite file or If you “favorite” images or text documents on your mobile device using the Dropbox app, you can access those files later, even if you’re not connected to Wi-Fi or cellular service.
2. “My documents” folder
Windows users: What happens if you forget a file at work or school and you need it right away? Letting your “My Documents” folder live in Dropbox will make sure this never happens.
If you use a work computer, personal computer, tablet and/or smartphone, moving your Dropbox from the local “My Documents” folder on your computer to your Dropbox in the cloud can help you keep everything in sync.
Lifehacker describes how to easily do this: right-click on your Documents folder, select Properties, and then on the Location tab you can specify the new file path.
Another helpful way to easily access the service for windows users is to add Dropbox to your start menu. HowToGeek has put together an excellent guide here.
3. Email Files to Dropbox as Attachments
When you don’t have access to Dropbox, it comes in handy to have an alternate way to upload files.
If you create an account at SendToDropbox.com, you can send files to a custom email address as attachments. The files will automatically appear in your Attachments folder in Dropbox.
4. Back up your entire Android phone so you never lose anything
In addition to only backing up your photos, if you have an Android smartphone or tablet you can backup your entire device to the service by using app DropSpace.
DropSpace is the easiest way to back up your phone for free. You should use this app because you never know when your phone will take a swim or a corrupted file erases all your photos.
4. Get More Storage — For Free

Dropbox offers 500MB for every friend that you refer to the service, 250MB for completing a “Getting Started” checklist, 125MB for connecting social media and several other options to earn more space. Dropbox Pro users can get up to 32GB of extra space, thanks to referrals.
5. Share music and photos with friends
After you have added photos or music to your Dropbox you can easily share the files by using the Dropbox app from a mobile device by clicking the chain link icon.
You can reach the same effect on the web by selecting the file through the site and clicking the same chain link icon. A link will appear and you can email the file to anyone and they can access the shared file.

Dropbox(https://www.dropbox.com/help/65/en), The downloadable Dropbox desktop application runs on Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems and gives you access to your Dropbox directly through a folder on your hard drive.
In addition to using the Dropbox website, we recommend that you download and install the Dropbox desktop application to get the most out of Dropbox.
Why? Using the Dropbox application is really convenient and fast. In fact, using Dropbox on your computer is just like using any other folder on your hard drive, except the files you drag into your Dropbox folder automatically sync online and to any other computers or mobile devices linked to your account. The application runs in the background and automatically keeps your files in sync and backed up online. It’s like having the same folder on all of your computers and mobile devices at the same time.
The desktop application is really convenient because you never need to manually upload or download files in your Dropbox folder. The application automatically watches your Dropbox folder and keeps your files in sync for you. Any time you save a change to a file and are connected to the internet, that change will sync everywhere you have Dropbox installed.
The desktop application even works when you go offline. The next time you’re online, Dropbox will sync changes just where it left off.
How do I sync files between computers?
Syncing your files between all of your computers, smartphones, and tablets is what Dropbox is all about. All you have to do is install the Dropbox desktop application and sign in using the same login on all your devices.
If you’ve already installed Dropbox, simply adding files to your Dropbox folder will automatically sync the file to your Dropbox, which means you can open it from any other computer, smartphone, or tablet that also has Dropbox installed.
If you’d rather sync some files with other people on other Dropbox accounts, that’s easy too; just create a shared folder instead.
Install the Dropbox app
- Start by downloading Dropbox on each computer, smartphone, and tablet you want to sync with.

That’s it. Dropbox will watch your Dropbox folder and automatically make sure your files are the same no matter where you access them. No buttons are needed and no further settings are required. You don’t have to do anything.
