Moon Banerrjee – My son and I fly kites on Makar Sankranti
Moon Banerrjee: I was partly raised in Maharashtra, so I learnt about Makar Sankranti from here. It is not celebrated in my hometown in West Bengal or Bihar. My fondest memories of Makar Sankranti are eating til laddoos, fresh straight from my Maharashtrian friend’s kitchen. I used to fly kites when I was a kid with my brother and his friends. We used to fly kites with the normal manjha because there was a fear of finger getting cut from the other manjha. Since the last one or two years, my son and I fly kites as he is very fond of that. I relive my childhood days with him.
