Meanest Indian – Kite Flickr Photos

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!

Spinning Rainbows – Winding dyed string for kite flying near Gandhi bridge.

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.

You can see all of “meanest Indian’s” Uttarayan Kite Festival

    It’s not often to find a kitelover on the blog and here you are. I am also an enthusiast as you can see from some of my kite entries at the my blog. There are also Indian kites, as well as some Oriental ones. Great site you have and please keep up the good work.
