The International Kite Festival, Uttarayna, marks the beginning of six-month period in the Hindu calendar between Makar Sankranti (around January 14) and Karka Sankranti (around July 14) when the sun travels towards the north on the celestial sphere.
On this day, which is very popular with children, the skies of Indian cities are filled with kites from before the dawn until well after dark.Kites of all shapes and sizes are flown, and the main competition is to battle nearby kite-flyers to cut their strings and bring down their kites.
The name Uttarayana comes from joining two different Sanskrit words "Uttara" (North) and "ayana" (movement towards). The period from July 14 to January 14 is known is Dakshināyana. The starting of Uttarayana is celebrated as Makara Sankranti
