KOFTA BALLS! GOVINDAS ON THE MOVE
KOFTA BALLS! GOVINDAS ON THE MOVE.
Tom Adams: New Govardhana resident Krsna Gana is well-known for his enthusiasm for prasadam distribution. Ten years ago, he began catering for Govindas and since then has been traveling all over Australia successfully serving prasadam, especially kofta balls. Indeed, in his own words, “everywhere we go, everyone loves kofta balls”.
A testament to their teamwork and dedication, Govinda’s catering team regularly serves crowds of up to 90,000 people at festivals such as Adelaide’s W.O.M.A.D and Canberra’s National Folk Festival. A small alternative festival held in McKay even fought for Govindas to continue catering there.
“They really love us there,” Krsna Gana says, “and they fought for us to be there.”
Impressively, Govindas has been catering at some of these festivals for more than 14 years.
The next upcoming catering event for Govindas will be a folk festival and an environmental day in Townsville. The crew will be leaving New Govardhana on the 23 May and, as usual, expect large crowds.
“Some of the longest queues we’ve had are in Townsville because entry is free to the Environmental Day,” Krsna Gana explains, adding that he was invited last year to speak on stage about Krishna consciousness.
Let’s all get around Krsna Gana and the crew and give them lots of love and support!
