Gujarat Tourism presents 26th International Kite Festival 2014 at Central Park, Connaught Place.
Participants from countries like France, Russia, Ukraine, Malaysia, Vietnam and Estonia along with over 10 Indian cities showed off their kite-flying skills through the day at the Central Park, leaving Delhiites awestruck. This is the third time the festival is opening in the capital and kites of all colour, design and structure were seen soaring in the sky over the Connaught Place circle.
The Kite festival is regarded as the change of season marking the movement of the sun into the northern hemisphere - a celebration to mark the end of winter. The blue and clear skies, cool breeze provides a feeling of joy and delight to all who celebrate this occasion. Kites are representative of a man's spirit and his imaginative powers.
The history of kites is beautifully depicted in the Kite Museum of Ahmedabad. History depicts that India developed a rich tradition of kite flying because of Kings and 'Nawabs' for whom the sport was both entertaining and a way of showing their power. Kings used to employ trained flyers to fly kites for them. Gradually, the art started becoming famous amongst the world and is enjoyed in forms such as this particular Kite Flying Festival.
