India’s top court said Thursday that children as young as 12 can climb atop towering human pyramids in a popular Hindu celebration that has seen deaths and injuries in past years. Devotees celebrate the birthday of the child-god Krishna each August by forming a pyramid with the last climber, usually a child, clambering to the top to break the “dahi handi,” an earthen pot filled with curd. But opponents of the age restriction brought the case to the Supreme Court.
