Hey guys am here not talking about holi or Diwali, it’s about colourful kites and balloons flying up in the nude sky. In this festival dressing up is not at all a priority, shopping and all are least bothered about..What matters d most is the type of ‘Manja'(string attached to fly kite)is used and ‘Firki'(swivel) is specifically imported from Surat to show that extra attitude of kite flying. And the quality of this paper stucked (kite also called Patang) suported on two wooden sticks is considered to be very important ,it’s balance in d air, it’s weight in d air all these scientific experiments are tobe performed as a ritual over here.
On this day sesame laddus are made with great love by our beloved mom’s.. trust me it tastes more sweet coz of the love that she mixes with it. Some so called DJ’s of the premises bring their music system along to create that atmosphere of entertainment in d event.
The entire building’s crowd uninvitedly gathers on the tarrace with their own respective kites n firkis and a ambiance of fun-filled war begins. Just one blow of the wind takes your kite up high in the sky but wait boss your neighbours are here just to cut it off with their kites..As I said they get this best quality manja imported mainly from surat. Sometimes it cuts the fingers too.
Yet this is our favourite festival as its not just about flying kites its about flying our hearts out.
