The Hindu tradition of kite flying on this day is popular in India, Nepal and South Asia where it has a historical and religious significance and honors the Sun God, who is regarded as the symbol of divinity and wisdom. The colorful offering to the sun in the form of beautiful kites is a way of reaching out to and celebrating the Sun God.
