The Kite Runners

February is the month popular for kite flying in Pakistan. Mostly people fly Fighter Kites where the line is coated with ground glass and hence able to cut other kite’s line in mid air. Once a kite is cut, it floats and falls to the ground after a while. The kite runners, hunters, follow these stray kites and claim the loot.

Spotted a small group of kids just out side my house:

They were surprised and happy to see someone just out there photographing.

He was not alone. All three brothers and another two brothers (will post tomorrow) were hunting kites.
