Krishna Janmashtmi or Gokulashtami celebrations are incomplete without Dahi Handi. People across the country are forming human pyramids to break the earthen pot filled with curd, turmeric and other things hung on a height with a rope. With the festive mood, here are some safety measures for Govindas participating in Krishna Janmashtami celebrations.
Twitteratis are sharing their Dahi Handi moments- with some being Govinda while others being a spectator. The enthusiasm and craze not only limit to common people, but even King Khan and AbRam cannot keep themselves away from celebrating this festival.
Among others, a video of Dahi Handi celebrations in the Mumbai local train is also going viral.
