It is a festival with a difference, and all proceeds will go towards the social cause of empowering and educating the girl child. So come and color the sky for a cause.Kite 2017 promises to be more and different, bigger and better than Kite 2016, Telangana's first international kite festival, a pioneering event held in January 2016 at the Aga Khan Academy.
