Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. –Matt Hardy

Here is a photostream featuring Meena Kadri’s album Uttarayan Kite Festival, India

Album Description: Uttarayan Kite Festival,  its the day when the sun begins travelling towards the northern hemisphere (uttara = north, yana = to go) indicating winter’s retreat. It is said that the gods, who hibernate throughout winter, awake at this time. Although it has Hindu roots, the festival colourfully cuts across social divisions of religion, caste and wealth.

All over Gujarat people fly patang (kites) on coloured string (manja) that has been coated in a paste of rice and ground glass which enables flyers to play-fight by cutting and catching each others kites.
