Up Above!

Happy Makar Sankranti! According to the Hindu Vedic Astrology, Sun enters the house of Capricorn (Makar) in the course of its celestial path. This marks the beginning of the Winter Solstice, though scientifically, 21st - 22nd December is the real start of Uttarayan(Winter Solastice). Kite flying is an important part of the celebration of Makar Sankranti in many parts of the country.
