Dahi Handi or Govinda Sport is an Indian festival, celebrated every August, that involves making a human pyramid and breaking an earthen pot filled with milk, curd, butter, fruits and water, tied at a convenient height. Pyramid formation needs coordination and focus; the lowest layers consist of the most number of people, preferably sturdy, while the middle layer players need to pay attention to those below as well as the others standing on their shoulders. The outer layer individuals need to focus on maintaining balance. As lighter people are needed higher up, the topmost layer usually has a single child.
