Every year people celebrate "Makar Sankranti" with a lot of fun and
happiness, but at what cost?
Each kite that gets cut, is causing at least 1 bird to get injured. if
it dies, then at least it's at peace, but there are lakhs who are
crippled and dangling from trees for days on end, without any food /
water and anyone to care about!
There are so many kids running on busy roads, with sticks in hand, and
they also don't consider cars at all! They are running blindly, and get
hurt. There are other stories also about pillion riders having their
throats cut sitting on bikes, or even while walking on road, people get
entangled in this manja mess.
Anyways, people please don't fly kites on Makar Sankranti, and even if u
do, then please don't use the ones with a glass manja. If your kite gets
cut, u can get a new one, but where are birds going to get their wings
or lives from?
If ever, u see an injured bird in following cities, contact the no's
