Uttarayan is celebrated in a big way in Gujarat. For two days, the horizon is made up of people crammed on their terraces and the sky specked with countless colourful kites. Shouting, celebration and the spirit of competition add to the frenzy. Even the nightfall does not deter these people from flying kites. In fact, it is a delight to watch the night sky. Along with the stars will shine little lamps attached to the kite strings, struggling against the winds. It is simply...beautiful!
