For Afghan Boys and Men, Kite Flying Is a Way of Life


Subject:
Outdoor Recreation , Kites

Description:
This 2007 article describes how, "[b]anned during the Taliban regime, kite flying is once again the main recreational escape for Afghan boys and some men." The sole objective of the kite flying is the kite fight, in which a kite flier tries to slice the other flier's string with his own and send the other kite to the ground.
