A kite festival for differently-abled children and adults was organized on 8 January 2017 at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, by the Omkar Foundation Trust, an NGO, in which 1,800 young and old people participated. Though the specially designed kites were too large and heavy for them to handle, they helped those flying the kites and enjoyed the games, dancing and music. Present at this largest kite festival for the differently abled, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., were the chief minister, the Speaker, MLAs and other VIPs of the state.
