Celebration of Krishna Janmashtami & Dahi Handi Utsav — All You Need To Know
Eminent international schools in Pune like SNBP International School Pune uphold the traditional side of India by celebrating various festivals. Our honourable chairman sir Dr. Dashrath Bhosale believes all students should be an equal part in these celebrations to appreciate the culture they belong to.
The Hindu festival Krishna Janmashtami or Gokulashtami is celebrated worldwide. Dahi Handi is one special event related to this auspicious day. This sport takes place one day after Krishna Janmashtami. In this sport, the Dahi handi, earthen pot filled with milk or yogurt is hung at a height that is seemingly difficult to reach. People try to look for creative ways to steal that handi or pot resembling episodes of Krishna’s childhood when he used to steal butter that his mother made. The young men make a human pyramid and try to reach the pot and break it amidst cheering crowd. Top CBSE school in Pune aims to make children aware of these festivals as these are an integral part of the states like Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana etc.Dr. DK Bhosale aims to make students aware of our legends and mythologies so they grow up to respect and admire our tradition.
