Kite flying is a popular hobby and an exciting sport in India. The peak season for flying kites in India is during festivals of Makara Sankranthi and Basant Panchami.
From the early times when kite flying began in India, the art of kite making has been transferred from one generation to the next. The kite making process is quite simple, and over the years many kite variations have been created. To earn a living by being a kite maker, making a large number of kites and different kind of kites in a day requires a lot of expertise. Though, hobbyists can make basic types of kites.
The kite’s craftsmanship is of utmost importance. This simple little paper and bamboo object though mass-produced, is made by hand- a product of the keen eyes and talented fingers of an expert.
