Kite Flying at Dusk

Silhouettes of young boys are seen to be intrigued by the flight of their kites, most likely battling with another kite. Flying kites is a common practice during the 10-day long Dashain festival in Nepal as kites battle to cut-off each others strings first. However, the practice has decreased lately, mostly like as a result of preference given over video games and other electronic entertainment devices.
