Basant Festival

Basant marks the beginning of spring.It is usually celebrated with garden parties,rooftop soirees and kite flying.People of Lahore and out of town enthusiasts wear clothes usually of green and yellow colours to usher spring and bid farewell to the frosts and fogs of winter.Pakistanis flock to Lahore to watch the "kite fighting".But every year, deaths are reported during this joyous day.There are kiteflyers who fell off the roof, children hit by cars as they ran down the streets looking towards the sky watching the kites.Here's some photos to show you how our neighborhood looks like at this moment.It's 4am here in Lahore.

The celebrations started last night and will end tonight.I will post more photos tonight.Happy Sunday everyone!
