my favorite festival Makar-Sakranti (14th Jan) when whole of Gujarat go onto their terraces, fly kites and shout ‘Katta’ – ‘Lapettt’ etc etc with some loud music and delicious Undhiyu-Puri ..

Work has kept me busy this time .. But I may go to Ahmedabd on 15th to enjoy the second day as people of Gujarat do not find one day enough to celebrate kite flyin .. On 15th also, the festival is celebrated with the same zeal and joy ..

Let us see how it turns out .. But right now I’m in office and I can visualize all my friends flying kites and enjoying the terrific atmosphere ..

Do I envy them ? .. Oh yes, I sure do !!

  1. Sigh!!! Even am missing Ahmedabad today!!! Though I don't know how to fly kite but the whole environment is such that u miss the fun & frolic of the place!!! I remember that some 4 years back we had flied kite on the terrace of our office ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Makar Sankrati is celebrated in North also .Did you see the number of people in Haridwar?
    Yes,it is perhaps different at Ahmedabad

  3. I had the notion that Makar Sakranti was invariably a North Indian festival but yet we did nothing about it..hmm..Kite flying gives an impression that it is zealously celebrated in Gujarat..
    Happy Makar Sakranti ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I can completely relate to the feeling. I was so fortunate this year, got to celebrate this in the US too! It was such a fun experience and almost took me back to Ahd. ๐Ÿ™‚
