Kites kites everywhere...

We have resumed listening to Karadi Rhymes since Aditi seems to "listen" to music now.
The kites rhyme triggered in Anushka the wish to fly a kite.

We were not sure if and where we could find them in Chennai. There was a ban that came into force recently following some freak accidents where two wheeler drivers got hurt due to some random kite string catching them unawares.

So we googled to make our own kite ( though we did not fly it) and found some wonderful stuff

Here is one that teaches the basics with a cute kid

Here are the words that mean kite in various languages

While we all know Kite runner, has anyone read the book Hasmina's Kite or A Kite Journey Through India.


Creepy as frogs are (i find them revolting in fact), I finished this 500 piece jigsaw puzzle in a not so quick 9 hours. Blame it on the jumpy subject. It was yet another gift from the foreign cousins.

The novelty is the 3D Visual Echo series that this puzzle belongs to and they are rendered by by an artist- Royce. Go here for more details....
