Kite festival – one of the famous spring festivals in India. It is also known as Makkar Sankranti, Uttrayan, Pongal or Lohri in different states of India. We are from Gujarat so we called it Uttrayan or Makkar Sankranti and it is celebrated on 14th January every year. Makkar Sankranti marks the transition of the Sun into the zodiac sign of Makara (Capricorn) on its celestial path that’s why we called it Makkar Sankranti. From that day, the days are getting longer and warmer.
The festival of Uttrayan is uniquely celebrated in the state of Gujarat with the sky is full of colorful kites and Tukkals. We can see this festival celebrated in every city by every person from child to adults. All are celebrating this day by flying kites, with different sizes, shapes and colors. People are on the terrace from early morning and flying kites, eating Gujarati snacks like Chikki, Bor, Jinjara, Sherdi, etc. In lunch they are taking Undhiyu specially made from all the green vegetables. Usually it is seen that people compete with their friends, neighbors to cut their strings of kites and brings down the kites of each other. Nowadays, youngsters bring their music system on the terrace and plays the music loudly and when they cut the kites of another, they shouts like Kaipo Che, Lapet, hurrey, etc and make some noise with whistles or noise making toys. In the evening, people are flying Tukkals made of candle covered by the paper balloon. The sky high is filled with the tukkals in the dark night and glows up the darkness with lighting candles, it is really an eye catching scenario in the sky.
