I have heard since childhood that 56 types of dishes are prepared to worship Lord Krishna on Janmashtami. Is this a random number or is there any myth associated with it?

Hey Monish, are you missing out anything? According to you, the total is 49. I guess it`s called `Chappan Bhog` that contains 56 dishes.
