At Vrindavan, Krishna was a very naughty child, and his love for makhan (white butter), curds and milk was well known. Vrindavan’s women would tie freshly-churned butter at a height out of Krishna’s reach. But Krishna and his friends would form human pyramid and steal their goodies anyway.
This dahi handi ritual has come to be an integral part of janmastami or gokulashtami celebrations in Gujarat and Maharashtra. So this year, this is just one of the memories from back home!
