During one of the daily temple visits, I happened to visit the famous Radha Raman temple. It was the day after Sri Krishna Janmasthami and there were plenty of people about in the streets. As I stepped into the temple, there was plenty going on there too !
The temple looked beautiful in the late morning. The sunlight came through the roof onto the marble floor. Below the roof was a decoration of mango leaves, banana leaves and flowers. People thronged the floor, not to gaze at the diety there but to watch the local kids nearly fight it out to collect the money that came floating to them from the balcony above.
In the balcony around the temple but within the main compound, families (perhaps belonging to the temple caretakers) would throw money from above. As the children waited below, jostling one another, they would be sprayed water from a garden hose above. Wet, tired and a sore neck, the kids were having the time of their life earning some cash.
I know at the ISKCON Krishna-Balaram mandir, in the evening after Janmasthami, the courtyard would host a sport where devotees break a pot of yoghurt (or maybe butter) hanging from the ceiling above, using a long pole and blindfolded. I know there is some connection of this game to Krishna lilas.
But does anyone know what sport is this at Radha Raman temple?
