The Bhang word.

A msg from my buddy Relaxing in the north of India and writing abt the Bhang. It made me curious.
Bhang (Hindi is a preparation from the leaves and flowers (buds) of the female cannabis plant, smoked or consumed as a beverage in the Indian subcontinent.

Its the hindu festival krishna jayanthitoday. And during this festival its legal to drink or use that cannabis.I think most ppl who celebrate are a bit in the wind.
Hindus celebrate Janmashtami by fasting and staying up until midnight, the time when Krishna is believed to have been born. Images of Krishna’s infancy are placed in swings and cradles in temples and homes.

At midnight, devotees gather around for devotional songs, dance and exchange gifts
I dont know Exactly the whole story of course. But one thing took my attention.
The Govinda Its a kind of sport. Govinda players gather together under Dahi Handi to making a human pyramid to catch and then break an earthen pot (a matki or handi) hung high in the air with the help of a rope. The players are known as Govindas or BalGopals. The sport is based on the legends about Krishna stealing makhan (butter) or dahi (curd) from handis

Its so interesting to read abt Indian festivals.I dont know a country in this whole world with so much festivals.
Thats why Indian ppl. always sing and dance. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS
Enjoy the festivals My Indian Friends.
