    I liked your blog. You could’ve added a few places that celebrate Makar Sankranti with Kite flying. Jaipur marks makar Sankranti as one of the most eventful days of the mark. It is a special holiday. Kite flying here is almost like religion, only difference is all religions believe in it. You may encourage tourists to visit during this time as they will witness something magnificent during this time. and best part is ‘there is nothing official about kite flying in Jaipur’ !!
