In Maharashtra, Janmashtami is celebrated with the popular Dahi Handi. In the celebrations organised around the event, members of the community form human pyramids to reach a clay pot containing dahi which is suspended from a wire at a challenging height. It is common for cash and treats to be handed out to groups called Govindas who move around in groups in search of handis.
