Locals gorge on curd in Patna as part of 'Dahi Khao' competition

In a unique competition organised in Patna, Bihar, locals came forward to participate in a 'Dahi Khao' competition. The event was organised by Patna Dairy Project. Participants were timed for 13 minutes under which they had to finish as many packets of curd as they could manage. Men and women enthusiastically gorged on packets full of curd (dahi). Onlookers showed equal level of enthusiasm and encouraged the participants by hooting and clapping. Organisers informed that apart from the fun segment of the competition, creating awareness about traditional treats and delicacies was also the agenda.
