I stumbled upon some really wonderful photos from flickr user “Meanest Indian” today. This person has some fantastic photos of people making kites and manjah in India. Here are some examples…
Multi-Firki – Kites & kites string at Manek Chowk. You maybe counting down to Xmas but here in Ahmedabad the next big event is Uttrian – the Kite Festival on January 14th. Can’t wait… always lots of fun!
Palm Patina – The hand of a man who is coating kite-string with coloured paste embedded with glass. On the roadside near Dilli Diwarja. Have been stopping by these guys the last few days – really dedicated workers and highly productive.
