HIGH-FLYING KITES ADORN THE SKY

Ahmedabad, 17 January: A variety of colourful kites adorned the sky this year during the International Kite Festival here. A record number of countries participated 1 in this annual festival.

The famous International Kite Festival, organized by the Gujarat State Tourism Corporation, was held at the Sardar Patel Stadium. 14 countries, including India, participated. The kites were very colorful and in a variety of shapes. There were dragons, eagles, snakes, crocodiles, etc. Some had tiny lights in them, while some were studded with stones. Excited spectators watched in awe as the kites soared in the sky, free as birds.

This year, the first prize, a gold-plated cup in the shape of a kite, went to Korea. The Korean team succeeded in keeping their kite in the sky for the longest time. Last year's winner and the host country, India, did not stand a chance this year and were out of the competition at an early stage. "We will double our efforts for the next year and come out with flying colours," said Rakesh Pandya, captain of the home team. We wish them all the best for the next year. Harsh Mehta
