Uttarayan - the famous kite-flying festival, which is hugely popular in Ahmedabad, is here again. The government of Gujarat organises special kite-flying events which first began during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure as chief minister to attract kite enthusiasts from all over the world. Therefore, Uttarayan has become a time where restaurants offer special food festivals so that families and friends can enjoy this two-days of the festival with lots of kite-flying along with it.
