In Mumbai, Dahi Handi celebrations get more and more competitive every year. A participant in this festival is called Govinda (another name of Krishna) or Govinda Pathak. The pyramid formation is often accompanied by crowds of people, music and dancing. Hundreds of teams participate in this event every year and famous celebrities are invited to promote the event. Some mandals even incorporate social messages like female foeticide or about keeping the environment clean.
