National Kite Flying Day
My niece and I
My Neice, the neighbors on their terrace trying to fly kites, and the beautiful sunset in Navsari, Gujurat
Jan. 15th is National Kite Flying Day. Banks and schools are closed. Kids wake up early in the morning and fly kites on the terrace of the house. It is a day full of fun. The goal is to “cut” another’s kite, when so you yell “lapaaateee” on the top of your lungs to let others know you have done so. Sometimes the kids just have fun trying to collect the kites that fall, especially if they are pretty ones!!!
I even learned to fly a kite for the first time in my life. It was loads of fun. Of course, their were not many girls trying, but we didn’t care… she wanted to learn and I was willing to help her…. it was the blind leading the blind.. haha. We would take turns climbing on top of the roof to give the kite a “jump” so we could fly it. Ummm.. our flying time was about 7 secs max. But its okie… at least no one cut our kite :).
