Dahi Handi

Dahi Handi is a festive event and a team sport during the Hindu festival of Gokulashtami, which is also known as Krishna Janmashtami in celebration of the birth of Krishna.
It is celebrated the day after Krishna Janmashtami and it involves communities hanging an earthen pot filled with dahi (yoghurt) at a convenient height for teams of young boys/girls to make a human pyramid and attempt to reach or break the pot. As they do so, spectators sing and cheer them on. It is an event with media attendance, prize money and commercial sponsorships.
A participant in this festival is called a Govinda and it is very popular in the state of Maharashtra, especially in the city of Mumbai.
It was celebrated yesterday in Mumbai with great fervour as you can see in the pictures below.
