India is rightly called as the land of festivals and some celebrations go beyond borders. One of the greatest annual celebrations, the International Kite Festival 2020 has begun in the state of Gujarat. Starting January 7 upto a week, the festival culminates with Uttarayan, which is an important celebration marking the seasonal change from winter to summer. Every year over a hundred participants come together to be a part of flying kites. And these aren't regular kites, but massive ones in all shapes and sizes. From the Indian tricolour to even cartoon characters, the kites are vibrant and make for a stunning display. The festival has begun just yesterday and we have got some beautiful pictures from the event which is taking place in Ahmedabad.
