Project 365: Day 78, Uttarayan 2014
Uttarayan is a magical time in Ahmedabad. During the day the sky is filled with kites and at the night the sky lights up as if the stars have descended on the earth and are dancing to the music.
However magical it may be, there are hundreds of kites in the sky and hundreds of birds that are not. Celebrating the festival responsibly means using kite string not laced with glass or avoiding certain Chinese varieties that have flooded the market these days.
