‘Twas the night before our epic trip to the Northeastern – 7 Sister States – of India. I was in Thane (Maharashtra) out on a stroll around midnight when I came across this group practicing making a human pyramid to celebrate Dahi Handi – a festival for celebrating Lord Krishna’s birthday.

In the video the group is seen successfully making 5 tiers, although 8 or 9 tiers is not uncommon these days!

Bharari goes to Caribana, officially known as Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Festival – North America’s largest Caribbean Parade and Toronto’s biggest street party!

The parade features the most elaborate and fascinating outfits, live Soca and Calypso music … and unlimited fun! Besides the parade, there is plenty of jerk chicken to feed the millions of visitors and enough booze and marijuana to make everyone high!

Here are a few videos from the parade, which took place on Saturday, August 3rd, 2013.

Note that some of the videos may not be suitable for children:
