The kite flyers

Yesterday it was Makar Sankranti in India.

It is a festival celebrated almost throughout India. It is a harvest festival.

“Makar Sankranti is the day when the glorious Sun-God begins its ascendancy and entry into the Northern Hemisphere and thus it signifies an event wherein the Sun-God seems to remind their children that 'Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya', may you go higher & higher, to more & more Light and never to Darkness.” (source: here)

It is also known as the kite flying festival.

Hence yesterday, all over Mumbai, kids and adults were flying kites everywhere.

Including on the roofs of slum houses!!
