Dahi handi restrictions

The supreme court has restricted the height of dahi handi on janmashtami to 20 feet .

Is it assault on hindu traditions or is it correct ?

Yeah, it's bullshit. None of their business.

Don't they have some REAL work to do .. like

crying (actual crying with tears and everything) in public about the burden on judiciary,
about the shortage in appointment of judges,
about the 130 or so vacations they get in an year?

Re: Dahi handi restrictions

They are just upholding a Bombay High court order.
As long as they are not banning this altogether, it would not be an assault on Hindu religion. But spoilsport though. 20' is too short. i remember taking part in one that was hung from 2nd floor (3rd floor if it was US) that should make it 25-30'


This is a typical desi way of going about things. Like when guys beat wives, ban drinking. When there are accidents during Handi, ban high handis.

Someone could collect data on how many accidents actually happen, safety measures that could be taken and make a fresh petition to SC.

Anyways, who is going to go and measure the height of each Handi and report to the court? Even NDTV plus one christian friend on facebook who keeps complaining that her dogs have a tough time during Diwali.

Re: Dahi handi restrictions

The problem is the restrictions are only with Hindus,time limit during Navratri,duniya bhar ka permission for Ganesh utsav starting from muncipal to police and to add to it this Handi restrictions. Loudspeakers are not allowed after 10Pm but can be used at 4Am to start the countdown of the start of fasting.

Shops and establishments are closed after 11 for almost all festivals but the whole of Ramazan areas like Mohd Ali road phydhonie etc are open till early morning.And no one files PIL about these!
