    • • January is the time for kite festivals to take place all over India.
    • • The International Kite Festival, however, is held at Ahmedabad in Gujarat.
    • • It takes place on January 13th or 14th, to coincide with the festival of Uttarayan or Makar Sankranti.
    • • Families celebrate this holiday together.
    • • Traditionally the kites are made from paper.• But this is not a gentle sport!
    • • The aim is to fly your kite, cut out the opposition and leave your kite flying.
    • • Special mixtures of glue and ground glass cover the lines. This helps to cut through an opponents line, sending their kite crashing to the ground.
    • • This makes the lines so sharp that, carelessly used, they can cut a finger.
    • • After dark, thousands of kites are fitted with cylindrical paper lamps. These fill the sky like brightly flickering stars.
    • Address Kite MuseumSanskar Kendra Opp. National Institute of Design, Paldi Ahmedabad – 380007 Gujarat India http://www.ahmedabadkiteflyers.org info@ahmedabadkiteflyers.org
