\nCelebrating the birth of Krishna in the small village of Brittona in Goa with a dahi handi!\nThe earthenware pot filled with dahi and home made butter is suspended between two tall poles on a rope. And groups of young men make a human pyramid to get to the goodies. This recreates the mischief of little Krishna stealing butter from all the kitchens in his neighborhood.\nThis community festival is celebrated in unbelievable mega proportions in Mumbai.\nBut in this little village in Goa the handi and the prize is small as is the group attempting to get to it.\nA few photos of setting it up \u2026\n\nWishing everyone a happy Gokulashtami or Janmashtami and hoping for a bit of Krishna\u2019s sense of mischief and a little of his enormous treasury of wisdom.\nFor it is he who enunciated the Bhagvat Gita!\n\u00a0\njm\nSept 2018\np.s. Saw the following photos on Facebook \u2026 the same event celebrated in mega Mumbai in a mega style that is unique to Mumbai!\n\nSuch amazing spirit in Mumbai at these times!\nBut the quaint little affair in my neighbouring village is equally endearing and just as mega Mumbai has its own charm, the exact opposite \u2013 the micro Village has its own!\nMuch love to every form of India!!\nThe post Krishna Janmashtami appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
