Today, 14th January, is celebrated across India as the Kite Flying festival. Known as Makar Sankranti or Uttrayan, this festival is a celebration which sees scores of people get together for kite flying competitions along with friends, family and neighbors.
It’s a fun-filled fiesta with kite flying competitions enjoyed over sweets (called chikki) and loud (mostly Bollywood) music.
It is the one (or rather 2-3) day where all people come out on their terraces to fly kites of various colors. The sky is a sight to behold! The festival is also a chance for a get-together and celebrations which sees girls and boys enjoy without inhibitions.
