Take a look through these stunning entries for the National Geographic Photography Contest 2012

Money Sharma: "Govinda players gather together under Dahi Handi to make a human pyramid to try to catch and then break an earthen pot high in the air with the help of a rope, in order to win the set prizes. Janmashtami and Dahi Haandi was celebrated in Mumbai. Govindas (young men) form a human pyramid to reach the dahi handi and try to break it in a bid to win prizes."

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I hang on to my tech goodies for good reason.
