DON'T FLY KITES: [SWIPE] With Independence Day comming up, we can't just stay mum in the name of tradition. Merriment for us should not be punishment for others
Kite flying is responsible for the death of thousands of birds in India. The tremendous amount of deadly glass coated, non-biodegradable 'maanjha' waste it creates kills more than it cuts strings of other kites. Failing to notice these fine strings birds get entangled and are unable to get out. And not just birds, people too suffer injuries and some have even died in the past.
Last year we saved 3 birds who were badly tangled in chinese maanjha, you can see one in the picture. Who knows how many more needed saving but weren't as lucky
This independence day celebrate independence kite free, remember the sacrifice of the martyrs, and not sacrifice birds in the process.
