We flew kites

14th Jan was Makar Sankranti/Uttarayan. It is traditionally the day when the winter ends, the days get longer and warmer. Now I don't know exactly why, but people fly kites on this day.

Thus at my workplace, the people decided to take some time off and fly kites. We wish for a better year, more money and a steadier economy.

I am no good at photography, but I liked these two pictures.

Dull sky

It is a cold and melancholy day, the sky is cloudy and the mood is depressing. I am wearing open sandals today, and now my toes are freezing. I think I am getting a cold. I sit here wrapped in my bright fuchsia shawl, wishing I could go home, sip hot tea and read Chimamanda Adichie.
