Govinda also known as Dahi Handi is a sport played
to celebrate the birth of the Hindu god Krishna. Govinda players make a human pyramid to reach and then break an earthen pot (a handi) hung high in the air.

Description
The sport has four parameters: height of the Handi, width of the place under the Handi, number of people to perform the Govinda, and the number of layers to perform the Handi break. Centring exactly under the Handi was a matter of skill. Very often, centring was not proper and finally the boy reaching the height would be a little away from the Handi and that is failure of Govinda.
A Govinda is structured in human layers gradually receding in diameter and forming a neatly shaped pyramid.

Dedication
There is a variation to Govinda with Handi! which is Govinda with Salaam (salute). The Handi does not have to be broken, only saluted. Introduced for new comers to the sport, as it does not need the same presision of position under the centre of the handi which is nessasary to break the handi.
