Dahi Handi Massacre!

Dahi Handi Massacre, India!

Dahi Handi (dahi: buttermilk, handi: earthen pot) or Govinda Sport 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. A participant in this festival is called agovinda or govinda pathak. It is mostly popular in the state of Maharashtra and Mumbai. It is part of the main festival Gokulashtami, which is known as Krishna Janmashtami in the rest of the country, and celebrates the birth of Krishna.

Some times, this festival does hurt!! Check this video out!!
