Colours of India-1

Flying kites is a passion in India. This season more kites fly on the skies of this country than in any other month.

On Makar Sankranti, patangs soar in the heights across the country. The kite flying competitions are also held in most cities.

In Western India, huge kites are made and flown. Excitement, fun and flavour accompanies the kite flying events.

In Punjab, Lohri is celebrated as the harvest festival. The kites are flown across Punjab on this occasion.
