THE Basant festival heralds the end of winter and arrival of spring. It is celebrated in the entire sub-continent, with flying kites - perhaps because spring generally brings a clear sky and just the right amount of wind. Lahore becomes the hub of activities with sky full of kites of different styles, sizes and colors. The Government of Punjab has fixed 9 th of February, 2003 for the festival.
