Winter and kite flying

Winter’s almost here. Almost! And in Lahore winter is associated with flying kites, in fact a lot of kites. I happen to commute to Garhi Shaho almost everyday, where kite flying is still pursued as a hobby. I can never resist myself just staring at them for ages. I always get the feeling that I’m high on skies. Kite is such a lovely thing…

Took this picture on a clear July morning. Everybody here is so fond of kite flying that they end up spending most of their earnings on these beautiful demons. They say “shauq da koi mol nai. My cousin, who lives in Saddar, even now has around hundred kites in his arsenal, two of which are bigger than me! :S

    500 width was no issue, it was only 15k. Tricky na? :D

    Well I have loads of pics that i took at a roof in samanabad last basant. But dunno how to upload them. May be after once I get subscribed in?!

    The pic if cool, reminds me of the celebrations winter brings. They will surely start after Eid and will end when the summer hits :)

    Ahh.. ~Lahore~! :)
