Krishna Janmashtami is one of the most awaited and enthusiastically celebrated festivals in our country, when the Hindus celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna, who is very affectionately adored and revered. The celebration involves decoration of the Jhoolan for the Lord at homes and Dahi Handi celebration in Mumbai and Pune cities. How do you celebrate Krishna Janmashtami and what are the rituals observed at home?

In my home, the pooja begins early in the morning with devotees giving an `Abhishek` to Bal Gopal`s idol with gangajal, ghee, water, honey and curd. The idol is then adorned with new clothes, jewellery, etc. Next, the idol is offered `Bhog`. Fruits, kheer, pedha, milk and milk products are made. Thereafter, special Krishna Pooja is performed. The cradle containing the divine infant`s idol is rocked, conch is blown. Krishna aarti is sung. People read out 108 names of the lord. After the entire pooja is completed devotees break their fast by having panchamrit.

On the occasion of Janmashtami, the famous Dahi-Handi festival is being celebrated with great enthusiasm across Maharashtra. `Govindas`, that is the young men above 18 years of age form a human pyramid and stand on top of one another attempting to break clay pots filled with butter or curd tied to ropes even as their efforts were thwarted by water splashed on them by those gathered around.

Since this is a very risky stunt, what are the safety measures taken for the participants?
