    So back in the days, in Pakistan, if you weren't able to fly a kite, it was kinda embarrassing especially on basant when you wanted to impress girls. People holding the dor or giving kanni (that would be me) were inferior to the ones flying - lol. I learnt it eventually but they stopped basant so haven't had a chance to ever fly again, besides its banned now.

    How about you? Share your kite stories.

    Used to fly regularly with cousins when I was young during my visits to Faisalabad. The 'paichay' and the aayi bo naarey aftwarwards..... sad that kids these days don't find such stuff to make memories

    if you cant fly a kite, please hand in your Pak nationality or NICOP and apologise to the nation. On the plus side you are now free to support Bangladesh.

    never done basant but I flew some kites with kids couple of years back when went to Pak (you can still buy kites although not widely available). Memories from childhood include making my own kites from plastic shopping bags and using broom sticks to fashion the structure, as well as making dor :p. On the0 rare occasions my mum actually allowed me to buy kites, it was literally like Eid. In my defense I was under 10.

    Did it once or twice on basant festivals. I do but not a fan of it.

    I never got the chance to fly one. All my cousins and bros would bully their way to fly one and never give me a try. So I lost interest in it and moved on to much more important things

    Flown many kites in my life, but always found it hard in the beginning (due to which destroyed way too many) and when it goes too high in the sky. This happened when I was like 12/13.
