Janmastami is the festival celebrated for two days in whole of india and the most important event celebrated during janmastami is the 'Dahi Handi'. As kids we have always heard the story of how naughty was lord krishna as a child and his love for butter (makhan) which he along with his friends used to steal from the handi. As the handis used to be kept at greater heights krishna with his friends would form a small pyramid and get the makhan down. This is the significance of celebrating dahi handi, this depicts the mischivious acts of lord krishna, reliving the pranks played by him.
