City-based biologist Abhishek Satam is as excited as can be for this Janmashtami and subsequent ‘Dahi Handi’ celebration in the city today. Satam like many others in the city wasn’t able to celebrate the festival like he would usually do because of the Covid-19 pandemic that wreaked havoc around the world. He says, “I love photography. Every year, my group of friends go around capturing the good moments of ‘Dahi Handi’ in Dadar, Mahim and Lalbaug. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do it in the last two years because of Covid. We are very excited and my wife, who will be accompanying us this time, is looking forward to it.”
