“Kaapyo Chhey” – This is what you could hear on !4th January, in the festival of Makar Sankranti or festival of kites or “Utarayan”. The festival marks the end of winter and return of the sun to northern hemisphere and hence is named “Uttar ayan”. On this particular day everybody in Ahmedabad start the day through kite flying and continues in the night by driving lamps (Tukkal) attached to kites in the sky. The sky remains through out the day, dotted with colourful kites.
