    :)Hi everyone at IL, I was told about you by some wonderful friends and colleagues in Ahmedabad. Since Uttarayan was recently celebrated here, I wanted to know if any of you have been to the Kite Museum in Ahmedabad?
    The brightly coloured and designed patangs here speak of the different regions in Gujarat where the patangs are handmade. The museum tells the story of the history of kites down the ages. Did you know that China introduced kites to the world in 200BC?The New York Tribune used kites to hail in the president in the 1896 US elections and IIT Kanpur came up with a project to create electricity and grind grains using kites.
