A rather attractive girl in a photograph taken some years ago by a local Lahore based newspaper. Apparently, this lady along with her friends was partaking in the yearly Basant festival celebrations. Basant is a local West Punjabi festival that celebrates the advent of springtime by the mass flying of kites. Kite flying contests are staged throughout the Punjab, but the sport is particularly zealous in the city of Lahore.
Kite flying enthusiasts use glass sharpened strings to cut through the kite strings of their opponents. Unfortunately, many children get injured every year due to the sharp and volatile kite strings. Pakistani girls also participate in Basant, as it culminates into a flurry of all night dancing and illuminated nocturnal kite flying parties.
