Dahi Handi Special

Dahi Handi is an Indian festival, celebrated every August, that involves making a human pyramid and breaking an earthen pot filled with buttermilk tied at a convenient height. This event is based on the legend of the child-god Krishna stealing butter.

So i thought why not upload some pictures while the guys are in the making of a human pyramid.

I managed to capture 2 glorious moments at 2 different places.

Obviously there are many such pictures which will be on display in today’s newspapers.

1) Kanchpada, Malad:

Did you know: For every level upwards, there is a reward set.

E.g: For 6 levels, a team can be rewarded anything from 10k – 50k.

But reward is secondary in this event.

But it’s not only the rewards that bothers the team.

It also involves the never ending tension.

One lapse in coordination, and the guy on the top will be on free fall mode.

And, that can be scary.

Over the years, the safety has been increased and accidents have seen a reduction.

2) JB Nagar, Andheri:

Now that’s a huge pyramid 😛

I got in the nick of time to capture this moment.

So near yet so far.

One more, and they would have the chance to break the handi.

6 levels.

That’s some height.
