  1. Oooooooooh wow! very nice clicks TGND ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to fly kites with cousins in B’lore ๐Ÿ˜› and I managed to get one stuck up high on a coconut tree – a brand new handsome green kite. Your post is on my wishlist ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The pic of the manja reminded me of the time by two elder brothers had ground glass and made the paste to strengthen the string, when I had been a little girl. The scolding they got from mother for doing that!

    I particularly loved the tree festooned with kites, as if they grew on the tree ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Sankaranti!

  3. Pongalo pongal! They fly kites here as well, no? Tried once with the kids but they couldn’t get them to go up and lost interest. I have never flown a kite from scratch myself, so wasn’t of much use!

      I haven’t seen kites been flown in Bangalore anywhere. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ In Ahmedabad, the entire city shuts down for two days to fly kites. The atmosphere there during Uttarayan is something one can only experience. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I regret the fact that I have never flown a kite from scratch myself, too. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Happy Pongal, TGND ๐Ÿ™‚
