Maharashtra the popular and often dangerous tradition of Dahi Handi was celebrated on Sunday, marking the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Teams of people will form human pyramids to reach high hanging handis or pot of curd. The Maharashtra government had recently made the activity an adventure sport, barring anyone below 12 from participating. Ironically, some of Mumbai’s biggest patrons of Dahi handi, mostly politicians, have chosen to stay away from this year’s event, to express disappointment about, well believe it or not, heightened safety regulations.
