A Kite Stuck in a Tree (Kati Patang)
I have been lazing around the house and yet itching to click some pictures. I walked out of the house thinking nothing much could catch my fancy but then I immediately saw this kite stuck in the tree. Waited for the sun to come down a little and then took a few shots.
I envy those who can fly kites. Whenever I tried I would cut my fingers! I wonder where this one came from because not too many kids fly kites here. Must have come from the colony behind ours.
There is a Hindi movie (with quite a few hummable songs) called Kati Patang.
I wonder how to translate the phrase kati patang in English. Anyone? All I can come up with is ‘the broken kite’ and ‘stuck kite’! OK if I really think hard then ‘the kite adrift.’ Pathetic!
