One of the best aspects of the world of kiting is that it encompasses the world. Experiencing kites means you travel, or as we say, “go with the wind.”

Over the years, we have had the pleasure of learning about kites of various countries and also meeting those special individuals who guide us through these kite encounters. Such is the case of Vijay Nathaniel, whose personal interest in the fighter kites of his country brought him to help with many of the wonderful Desert Kite Festivals orchestrated by his friend Ajay Prakash.

Vijay was one of our “India kite ambassadors,” meeting and assisting first time kite visitors to India and introducing us to the wonderful sights and sounds of the fighter kite. This was always done with the biggest of hearts, a volunteer who gave us endless attention.
