Weekend Assingment #208

The return of spring is really big in Punjab. That's the capital of the spring festival known as Jashan-e-Baharan. The main event of this festival is kite flying, don't know how that got started. Of course the rest of Pakistan also celebrates but not like the guys in Lahore. Take a look:

Lahore dresses up

Selling kites is a big boost for the local economy


And fun for the kids

Now its time to head up to the rooftops and go fly a kite!



People get really competitive and try to knock each others kite out of the sky. If you manage to do that your suppose to say "Bo-Kata!". Of course for me spring is a time to be glad that it isn't cold anymore.
