National Kite Festival
A sea of multicoloured, dazzling and spectacularly shaped kites submerge the skies of India on 14th January. The National Kite Festival is given a new meaning in the erstwhile capital of Gujarat. Ahemdabadi’s gather on rooftops to celebrate their favourite festival – Uttrayan, as they pick up their manjas, bandage their fingers and make the kites soar high in the sky. The electric atmosphere intensifies as the battle begins and expert kite-fliers vie against each other to cut off the others strings.
