Kite Festival - Jaipur India

Kite Festival is a popular festival of Jaipur, Rajasthan. Kite flying is enjoyed by people of all age-groups. However, 14 January, the day of Makar Sankranti, makes the official day for flying kites in Jaipur. People make most out of the festival by flying kites for the whole day. The sky becomes next to invisible as innumerable kites cover it. People form groups and fly kites, to enjoy the event to its full. With each cut loose of a kite, people fill the environment shouting, "Woh Kata". People shout from their terrace as adversary's kite is cut down. Everyone is an adversary in this game and each kite is a competitor for the other. Engrossed in Kite flying, people enjoy loud music and food on the terrace itself. In Jaipur, the sky looks like a huge collage with all kites of all shapes and designs in it. In every five years, the Desert Kite Festival is organized by the Government of Rajasthan, where expert Kite makers show off their kites. Sometimes, these kites are as huge as 1.5 Kms and are designed in different shapes. Such kites often carry social messages; depict social issues or even caricatures of politicians. The Kite Festival has become popular recently among the tourists, who can too participate in the different kite flying competitions.
