Celebration of Makar Sankrati -14-1-2016

Flip-Flap! Flip-Flap!
Rises my kite
Up and up in the sky
Blue and bright
Flip-Flap! Flip-Flap!
Goes my kite
Sometimes to my left,
And sometimes to my right
Flip-Flap! Flip-Flap!
Flies my kite,
High and high above,
Touching the skies!

Makar Sankranti is one of the most important festivals of the Hindu calendar and celebrates the sun's journey into the northern hemisphere, a period which is considered highly auspicious. Makara Sankranti is celebrated in almost all parts of India and Nepal in a myriad of cultural forms. It is a harvest festival.
Little Wittians celebrated Makar Sankranti by flying colourful kites along with their peers. They enjoyed making small paper kites. They got to taste the sweet, traditionally eaten in this festive season, “ revdi “

It was indeed a festive mood that prevailed in the school through the day!!
