There is a certain thrill to flying kites. Colorful kites dotting the skies of Kathmandu used to be a sign that the Dashain festival is arriving. However, the tradition of flying kites with the onset of Dashain has gradually taken a backseat due to rapid urbanization and modern lifestyle. While kids are still enthusiastic about flying kites as a sport, adults mostly don’t participate. Attributed to either hectic schedule or mere lack of interest, today's generation rarely flies kites to mark one of the most prominent festivals.
