Happy Janmashtami

 

Janmashtami is popularly called as “Dahi Handi” in certain parts of the country. An earthen pot filled with buttermilk is tied at a challenging height. In an attempt to reach the earthen pot, the participants have to form a human pyramid; the top most person breaks the earthen pot with sheer pleasure splashing the buttermilk on the entire human tower. The participants are called "Govinda Pathak" and their groups are called “Manuals” or “Handis”. This event is conducted on a large scale, wherein the prize money awarded is worth from thousands to lakhs. The manuals move around the town to be able to participate in the maximum number of such challenging competitions.
