Mumbai - Makar Sankranti is the season of kites.
Meanwhile, in Maharashtra, till-guda (sweet) are exchanged as tokens of goodwill. People greet each other with this statement, 'Til-gud ghyaa, aani goad goad bola'. Accept this til-gud and utter sweet words. This is not the end, we have something in store - the kites. It looks great when the sky is covered with beautiful kites, what a beautiful sight isn' it? What about the plight of birds who get entangled because of glass coated strings which we use to fly the kite.
Sparrow's Shelter has requested people not to fly kites, as birds own sky more than these kites. "Let's spread awareness among friends and families not to fly kites this Makar Sankranti and celebrate it in traditional manner"appealed volunteers of the organisation.
In case you spot any injured bird or entagled in the manja, you can contact sparrow shelter on 9867633355.
