Dahi Handi is a popular event that takes place during the Hindu festival of Janmashtami, which celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna. This year, it will be observed on Wednesday, September 06, 2023. The event involves the formation of a human pyramid by a group of young men, who then attempt to break a pot filled with curd that is hung at a significant height. The pot is symbolic of the butter that Lord Krishna used to steal as a child, and the event is a reenactment of his mischievous behavior. Dahi Handi is a highly anticipated event in Maharashtra and is often accompanied by music, dancing, and elaborate decorations.
