Travel photo of the day
The kite festival
The festival is called 'Uttaryan' or 'patang' festival. 'Makar Sankranti' is a Hindu Festival, which is celebrated all over India. Uttaryan marks the day when winter begins to turn into summer and sun is back and that harvest season is approaching. Gujarat organize kite festival and competition. Uttarayan and Makar Sankranti celebration is such a huge that it has a public holiday in India. The photo has been taken in Jamnagar, Gujarat, India. The colorful kite is bigger than the little girl, which attracted my attention.
