Kite Festival in India

Every year on the 14th of January, India celebrates the arrival of spring and the passage of the sun into the Makara Rashi (the Capricorn zodiac sign). Makar Sankranti is regarded as a major harvest festival in many Indian states. It is significant because it commemorates Goddess Sankranti’s victory over evil and the brutal Rakshasa Sankarasur (demon), who tortured and killed humans.

For starters, nothing beats the sensation of flying bright kites with your loved ones or friends in the early morning sun from a rooftop. It is impossible to compare the thrill of flying kites and breaking the strings of other kites, and the atmosphere of celebration is euphoric. During this festival, it’s customary to give your loved ones a Til-Gul Laddoo (a confection made of sesame seeds and jaggery). Til-Gul ghya aani goad bol bola, which translates to “eat these Til-Gul sweets and speak pleasant words,” is a proverb used frequently in Marathi.
