Today Mumbai celebrates Gokulashtmi the festival of Lord Krishnaâ€™s attempt to break â€œhandisâ€ full of butter-milk and cream. Over the period of time band of boys have taken over the celebrations and move around the city trying to break the â€œhandisâ€ filled with cas rewards set-up up at various socities. Itâ€™s quite an effort for the boys to form a human pyramid to have one little boy from their group to reach the top and collect the booty.
A colleague at work tells me that a similar feat also happens in some portion of Spain. I couldnâ€™t find anything very intereting to read about this online but what I am going to leave you with are some glimpses of the celebrations I witnessed around my office area. Some more available at my Flickr photo album.
