“We spend our life waiting for the ideal path to appear in front of us. But, what we forget is that paths are made by walking, not by waiting,” remarks Manodnya. She talks about the kite-flying tradition during the Makar Sankranti. She points out that the thread (manjaa) used for flying kites is razor sharp and poses dangers to birds and two-wheeler riders. She thought of an alternative kite which can be attached to a harmless cotton thread and also act as a carriage of seeds.
