Flying high & Flying Kite

Flying kites is a healthy and mental relaxing activity. As a human everyone perhaps has an inherent aspiration to fly the sky. Flying kite may be an expression of human flying urge into the sky. This aspiration is also symbolizing freedom. So flying kite activity may be the most popular hobby all across the world.

Originally it is evolving from China around 470B.C. Chinese used kites to send messages to find enemies. It is also used on fishing, sailing ships, and many occasions. In the Hindu culture flying kite has a special occasion. On the day of Makar Shankanti people generally fly kite to aspire their wishes. The festival spirit is showcased by flying the kites as high as possible. The jubilant mode and early morning kite fly helped people to rejuvenate.

In the past kite made up of light bamboo, leaves, cloths similar light items. Now kite is made up of cloth, paper, and plastic material with multicolor and shapes. Usually, open space, light breeze, and sunny weather are suitable for kite flying. Utmost care necessary when kids and small children involved to fly kite.

People are now trying to enjoy kite flying as a hobby. During the winter on a sunny day when I look around from my terrace I have seen many multicolor kites hovering in the sky. Behind the kite enthusiastic flyer. I have noticed that people from 10-12 aged group to 30 aged are involved in kite flying.  Maybe kite symbolizes the quest for freedom. It energized the human spirit like a bird has.

During the month-long lockdown period all the people are spent in their home. During the afternoon I have noticed that people are enjoying their colorful kites. The first few weeks it is just a couple of kites but when lockdown tenure increased gradually hundreds of flying kites started to hovering over the sky. So a few persons used this opportunity and started to sell kite. So everyone busy flying kite flying as well as arranged competition who can fly high or tear one another.

It was produced original Chetan Bhagat Story the Three Mistakes of my Life. This was a box office hit film and earned about INR 920 million.

The Kite Runner is a 2007 American film based on the kite. It tells the story of an Afghanistan boy. It also another Hollywood blockbuster and earned $73.2 million. The film score by Alberto Iglesias was nominated for Best Original at the Golden Globes and the Academy Award.

The film Kite runner plot was derived from the Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini. It was his first novel and published in the year 2003 by Riverhead Books. It tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul.
