Janmashtami is a festival which is celebrated with a lot of fervor and excitement every year, marking the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Krishna is said to be the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who was born to Devaki and Vasudeva, so that he could protect the people of Mathura from the wrath of King Kansa, who was Devaki’s brother. Krishna also played a significant role later on in helping the Pandavas in the battle of Kurukshetra.

Dahi handi is one form of celebrating Krishna’s birthday, which takes place majorly in Gujarat and Maharashtra. Boys get together to form human pyramids and try to break an earthen pot which is fixed at a height of about 35 ft from the ground. It is quite an exciting event with its share of nail biting moments. Wherever a dahi handi takes place, lots of people gather around to cheer the participants and also enjoy the show at the same time.
