A local gentleman flies a kite in celebration of Independence Day in India.
Come 15th August the skies are dotted with multi-coloured kites of various shapes and sizes. One of the most delightful and interesting activities associated with Independence Day is kite-flying - symbolizing the spirit of freedom. Kite flying competitions are held at many places in the northern and central parts of India.

Good contribution to the "Man At Work" theme ;)
Excellent portrait, fine composition, his arms create clever diagonal line. Well seen.

It is really significant that you shoot it on 15th August, 2013 and exhibited it same 15th August but it is 2014. 15th August is the Independence Day of India. Excellently captured the activities of man whose wrist band represents the color of Indian National Flag. Well done.
with warm regards and have a nice weekend.

This is a very good capture of concentration. The eyes of the man are looking up to the kite, we cannot see it but we can definitely notice it in this well taken picture. A beautiful diagonal composition.
