A free climbing sports event called “Jod ke Tod” is taking the Hindu festival of Dahi Handi to the next level. In this festival, men form human pyramids to break an earthen pot (aka handi) which is suspended high-above the ground and is often filled with water or curd.

But “Jod ke Tod” broke gender norms by inviting over 3,000 women to participate in this festival. At this event held in Mumbai, the Parle Sports Club climbed to defeat nine other teams.

Watch these brave girls as they share their experiences of taking part in this exhilarating sport.
