every year festival of makarsankrati we make this festival as a kite festival and kites strings are dangerous now days because Flyers are using dangerous strings, and the harmless cotton strings has been forgotten," says Mehul Pathak, founder of a kite flying club in Gujarat.
Many kite strings are coated with metal or crushed glass mixed with glue, to help cut the strings of rival kites in hotly-contested flying contests.
And in the past five years, flyers have started using nylon strings laced with glass, which are stronger, and more dangerous, than regular kite strings. These strings do not snap easily, and have been blamed for the recent deaths.
Falling kite strings can be lethal.
They catch unsuspecting bikers across the throat, often killing them.
The two children who died in Delhi this week were looking out through the sunroof of their cars when the falling strings slit their throats.
Metal-coated strings have fallen on electricity lines and overhead power cables, and people have been electrocuted while trying to retrieve their kites. These strings have also caused short-circuits and power outages.
And kite strings aren't the only reason kite flying can be dangerous.
Many fliers have fallen to their death from unguarded terraces while flying and chasing kites. Chasing falling kites also leads to road accidents.
Million of bird got enjured every year all over india and lack of rehabilitation center they die.
