Chromatic Kite Fest Photos

These Photos Capture Colorful Sights At the Uttarayan Kite Festival

— October 27, 2014 — World
The Uttarayan Kite Festival is an internationally renowned kite festival that takes place in the Indian state of Gujarat. British photographer Tom Robinson captured these phenomenal photos of the event for Gujarat Tourism.

The annual festival marks the end of winter and the arrival of summer. It also commemorates the approach of harvest season, a crucial time of year for farmers.

The photos capture India's famous kite battles -- here, kite strings are coated with dyes, egg whites and crushed glass, allowing participants to swoop in and cut the strings of other kites. The Uttarayan Kite Festival also welcomes people from outside India who come to showcase their gorgeous kites, some of which are massive and require teams of people to get going.
