Dahi Handi, which is part of Krishna Janmashtami, is celebrated on a grand scale.
Though it is celebrated across Maharashtra in a grand scale, in Mumbai it is celebrated with great fervor.
This year on 19 August, the festival was celebrated with great pomp in Mumbai after the COVID-19 pandemic-induced gap of two years.
As part of the festival, youngsters (called ‘govindas’), dressed in colourful attire, form human pyramids to reach an earthen pot containing buttermilk and currency notes suspended mid-air, and break it. It symbolises victory through unity.
