In Photos: Dahi Handi Celebrations On Janmashtami

The Dahi Handi events are part of the Janmashtami festivities, the Hindu festival that marks the birth of Lord Krishna, an incarnation of God Vishnu. In Dahi Handi events, participants form a human pyramid to reach an earthen pot at a height to recreate how Krishna would have reached out to dahi (curd) which he loved as a child. The events are particularly popular in Maharashtra where they are central to Janmashtami festivities.
