On this round planet if there's something that is as evenly undistinguished to every race or religion, caste or creed, nation or country then it's the enthusiasm and unbiased idea of celebrating their festivals. Well, undoubtedly the first place that pops up in our head is India. And in India, solely in the state of Gujarat about 2000 festivals are celebrated in the span of a year. It's like the party never ends in this state, doesn't matter which month it is, each month has its own zing.
But as the calendar notifies that each year begins with January, consequently the jumbo jive parades in with the Kite Festival. And yes, it literally embarks from the top –the boundless skies are knotted with the threads and paper adhered on thin bamboo sticks. Globally renowned as Uttarayan (known as Makar Sakranti in other parts of India) is the day when the sun starts to travel northwards marking the descent of winter. The days become longer, the skies clearer and the breeze cooler. A sensation of hope, bliss and jubilation clutches everyone who celebrates this occasion of Kite Festival. In Gujarat; Uttarayan is a celebration when every family is found outdoors on their rooftops. People of all ages fly kites from sunup to sundown. Crowded rooftops, eccentric friendly rivalry to outdo each other in kite flying skills and delicacies of the traditional Gujarati cuisines are the hallmarks of the day. Since 1989, the city of Ahmedabad has facilitated the International Kite Festival as a major aspect of the celebration in the state. Uttarayan is celebrated across Gujarat with significant focuses of kite-flying in Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, Nadiad, and all other cities. Kites of all shapes and sizes are flown, and the fundamental rivalry is to fight close-by kite-flyers to chop their strings and cut down their kites. For this, individuals discover their favored kite-creators who plan solid flexible kite bodies with springy bamboo casings and kite-paper extended to precisely the right strain.
The environment is brilliantly bubbly, as entire families assemble on the roof, exceptional nourishments like laddoos , undhyu or surati jamun are catered for eating throughout the day and friends and neighbors visit one another for indulging in kite-flying fun. From the morning to late during the evening, Uttarayan gives bunches of fun and delightful sights to recollect for in the few days that it goes on. You too can sulk in this endless fun by simply booking our exclusive Kite Festival package.
