Sucess factors to break DAHI HANDI...........

If you are staying in Maharashtra and especially in Mumbai, you must have gone to see the “Dahi Handi”. It is wonderful and mind blowing experience to see fabulous human towers and excellent team co-ordination among them. All are focus towards one Goal- To break the Dahi Handi.

We have so many dreams and wishes in our mind. How to achieve the dream is the question. When we give the timeline and adopt some methodology, understand the success factors, the dreams can be converted into goals. If you add the efforts to that you achieve your goals.

Dahi Handi is the goal for team. Consider it as a metophore for your goals. Different people have different Dahi Handi for them. Students must be thinking to score good marks; somebody may dream to get good job; promotions and good increment. Everybody wants to break their dream Dahi Handi.
Here is the method and success factors for achieving the Dahi Handi.

Enjoy the different perspective of the team and team skills.

How the homogeneous team break the Dahi Handi?

Following are aspects of their team skills:

If you want to achieve your goal, you need to take the risk. All team members take the risk by making human towers.

Take a risk, but do not be blind. Rehearse and keep balance.

You need to keep in mind the synergy and coordination. They can not afford the lack of synergy and coordination.

Manpower Planning and right person at right job:
Proper use of resources. If fat guy climbs to break the Dahi handi, what will happen? Will they be able to get that?

Supporting each other and accommodating others is the key for success.

See the confidence of all team members. They can not touch the sky without confidence.

Audience is cheering them. All are eager to know what will happen next. But all team members have their eye on their Goal.

Strong hands make the strong foundation.

There are hundred hands to support to these guys if something goes wrong.


Breaking the Dahi handi is the success. But all are together. Different team members come together for this. They form, they discuss the strategy, they practice, they use the strength of different people and finally they achieve the goal. Sense of achievement is big.

If team could not get that done, they go back, introspect and prepare for the next year.

I must congratulate you on this very important inference you drew from our festival of Dahi-Handi. You must have thought a lot while writing or expressing this article. Now because of your effort, I have started thinking of other festivals and it is really important to give the meaning behind our each festival. It will really become a great idea and any support you need for this, I will be happy to extend the support to you. There are about 25 festivals we celebrate and since there is not joint-family existed, the “knowledge” of celebrating such festivals is no more shared for us and our children. Your idea will help next generation to know importance and logic behind the festivals. Great. Thanks.

Thanks & Regards
