Human pyramids formed to celebrate Hindu deity

In India, people celebrating the birth of the Hindu deity Lord Krishna challenged a court order that limits the height of human pyramids.

During the celebration, dozens of people form pyramids in an attempt to break a curd-filled pot hanging from a rope.

But in mid-August, India’s Supreme Court upheld a decision to ban anyone under the age of 18 from forming pyramids and restricted the height of the human pyramids.

In the past, hundreds of people have been injured during competitions to see which group could climb the highest – including children who’d climb to the top without safety gear.

In an act of defiance, human pyramids were formed that exceeded the court’s limit and some people waved black flags in protest.
