The Kite Competition Continued……………

Sai Baba 1

The three friends who took part in the kite flying competition met once again as planned. They were  wearing their sunglasses and had brought fresh kites with them ( I had written the post about it yesterday – Three Competing Kites.). They came at about nine O’ clock in the morning, after finishing their breakfast. They went to the three different ends of the playground and started flying their kites. For half an hour all that they did was spend their energy trying to get the kites high up in the air and the wind was against them.

They were nearly exasperated when, there was a sudden change in the direction of the  wind flow and immediately, the kites started going higher and then again. It was a tough fight with the wind to control their kites. In the meanwhile, four other boys came into the playground bringing their kites with them. Soon there were seven kites flying in the sky and more people came and started cheering them.


After five minutes or so, one of the original contestants of the competition brought down the kite of one of the boys who had joined later. This act bought a new level of rivalry in the two groups of boys and with more cheering from the crowds, they became more aggressive in their attitudes and were beginning to quarrel, when three elder men from the locality started flying kites. Soon many more people started crowding in the playground and like bees attracted to honey, vendors with their wares and goods came their and started hawking their products.

The kite competition went on for more than forty five minutes, when at last there were only two participants remaining. One of them an elder and the second one a small boy.

In the bravely fought kite competition, the boy won the match fair and square as the elder was spending most of his time scratching his bald head and the boy meticulously and cleverly brought down that bald man’s kite.

The kite competition turned out to be very enjoyable for the whole locality as everyone whether a champ or a zero had come to watch the match and the boy who won was cheered by everyone and his mother presented him with a big chocolate bar for winning the match. All the neighbourhood aunties had brought delicious dishes for him throughout the day, for he was the hero of the day.
