Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT |  The skies over Luzira, a suburb in Kampala, Uganda came alive with a burst of colours displaying diverse kite designs as the Indian Community in Uganda recently celebrated the International Kite Flying Festival 2024 at GEMS International School along Butabika road, some 13km out of Kampala city.

This annual event also marks the start of the spring season. The tradition of kite flying in India was initially reserved for kings and royals, but gradually it spread through society which is why Uganda held it.

Over time, it evolved from a royal pastime to a regional event, gaining popularity across Gujarat, a state along the western coast of India. The first international kite festival was celebrated in 1989.

In a display of community support, Kansai Plascon played a major role in making this year’s festival even more memorable. Known for its commitment to community development, Plascon has been actively involved in supporting various communities in Uganda according to Santosh Gumte, the managing director of Kansai Plascon.

Gumte said, “Kansai Plascon takes immense pride in contributing to the Indian culture and the Indian community as a whole in Uganda. Our partnership with this event is part of our commitment to strengthening the community spirit within the local Indian community. Supporting this huge celebration to mark the start of the spring season aligns with our values of promoting unity and diversity.”

During the 2024 International Kite Flying Festival celebrations at GEMS International School, Kampala, Kansai Plascon joined hands with the Ugandan Indian community.

The company also presented prizes that made the festivities even more exciting. Attendees had the chance to win remarkable goodies, including paint worth Ugx1m, television screens, and an air ticket to India.
