Hundreds of 'Govindas' vied for hefty prizes at various places in the city and adjoining Thane as people celebrated 'Dahi Handi' with great fanfare amid chants of 'Govinda ala re ala'.

Dahi Handi is celebrated on the next day of Janmashtami, during Nanda Utsav. A pot with the mixture of curd, milk, dry fruits, ghee etc is hung by the means of a rope about 20-30 feet high. Contestants form a human pyramid to get their hands on the desired pot. It is definitely a challenging game to get hold of it as eager contestants make their way up to it, water is sprayed on them continuously by the onlookers to distract them. The silver coins that are tied to the pot are handed to the winner who gets hold of the pot.

In some places, a series of pots are placed one on top of the other, held together by means of a rope. The contents of the pots are different in each like curd, butter milk, butter etc and held together and suspended by the means of a rope. Human pyramids are either formed to reach the pot or the contestants are given a stick to hit the pots when they are brought down by the means of a pully. It is a difficult task indeed as it is pulled up immediately when the contestants try to hit it.
