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.

Here, in Jaipur, people love flying kites. Whole day, loads of music, lots to eat and fireworks at night!

Came to work super early, and thought of reading your blog! I love the first picture - the dark silhouette and the colorful kite - the contrast is striking. Beautiful work Adi! I love your blog :)

The first photo is strangely brilliant. Don't ask me to explain what I meant.
