Dahi Handi Festival Celebrations

MUMBAI, INDIA - AUGUST 15: Govinda collapse as they try to form a human pyramid to break the "Dahi handi," an earthen pot filled with curd hanging above them, as part of celebrations to mark the Janmashtami festival at Dadar on August 15, 2017 in Mumbai, India. The child-god Krishna and his friends used to form human pyramids to break pots hung from the ceilings of neighbourhood houses, in order to steal curd and butter. Dahi Handi is one of the festive events and a team sport during the Hindu festival Gokulashtami, which is known as Krishna Janmashtami in the rest of the country, and celebrates the birth of Krishna.(Photo by Kunal Patil/Hindustan Times )
