[Mcm2Ada] The Indian festival of Krishna Janmashtami

Faithful Hindus worldwide celebrate Krishna Janmashtami - the birthday of Lord Krishna, who always celebrated with enthusiasm and zeal. Adults and children dress up in the image of Lord Krishna and his beloved Radha with bright costumes and lots of jewelry. On the streets you can see the pyramids of human bodies, which were erected for the production of "dahi-Gandhi" - a pot with cream cheese. Large clay pot filled with milk, cheese, butter, honey and fruit and hung to the height of 6.12 meters. Participants compete for the prize, climbing over each other at the top.
