UTTARAYAN KITE FESTIVAL, AHMEDABAD, INDIA
On the 14th and 15th January every year India celebrates the end of the Winter and the coming of Spring – giving thanks that the sun is back and harvest season is approaching. In many cities in the region of Gjarat, the Uttarayan is a huge celebration and public holiday during which thousands of kites fill the air – marking the connection between Heaven and Earth. Along side an air of competition to see which is the last kite flying, kites that are ‘cut’ free from their strings are then chased across the countryside – usually by children – the prize being that the first to reach it, can keep it !! If you’ve seen the film ‘The Kite Runner’ or read the book, you’ll already know what goes on.
However, with so many kites flying, it is sadly also a time when thousands of migrating birds get caught up in the kite strings – either whilst they are being flown, or entangled in the loose strings of those kites that have been grounded. This situation is made worse by the fact that many of these kites are ‘fighting’ kites whose strings, called manja, are not only made from very strong almost unbreakable ‘nylon’ – but are then coated in ground glass in order to cut down their opponents.
Whilst the majority of injuries are sustained by birds and animals, some humans have also run foul of these strings – causing untold tissue damage and death.
