8-22 Jan 2017 -International Kite Festival Tour month

The day begins from 6th Jan as I had to leave Kochi to catch scheduled kiter activities in different parts of India beginning West to Spotify South and ends to return back home. Kite Festival is an important activity as far as a kiter is concern. Its a regular activity that compound just not flying but an opportunity which would give meeting new friends and old friends. Years now gone many are olf friendships only. It's kind re-union. Hence fellowship and friendships. Talks are always same if meet old or new but difference will be the kites we brought to dually and exhibit. 1000s of people gathered around in the vast and vide ground enthrall audience. Many wanted to try out hand in hold kites and see how weigh it has as kites made but kiters are awsumly big and tedious to fly as to control over wind. Sparing turbulent wind. But then it is a matter of pride in the ground as the spectators are eyed on us what new this guy is coming to do. May friendship from the crowd also born. How do you become a kiter? What is right route if they wish to participate etc etc are the most delivered enquiries from such friends. It's called interesting matter as we keenly look forward to have new friends around. As a kiter I have always a contention, to be a kiter you need to make a kiter buy yourself, that pride you attain by showing this is some what you can always cherish. Buying a kite is a common scene these days. But i like making and flying it. Lot of pictures are in the perusal. You may like it. Here it goes.
