||Fernando, Colombo, at India Kitefest:
One of their kites is in the shape of a phoenix. We
made this kite keeping the tsunami in mind. Like a phoenix rises from
the ashes, we, too, hope our country will recover soon,
says Devsiri Fernando of the Pan Lanka Kite Flyers Association who
helped with relief operations in Colombo from December 26 to 31. After
the tsunami, the Lankans did think of cancelling this trip. But
we didnt do so as this is the first time our country was participating
in an international kite festival. We also realised that we need to
rise above the tsunami mindset. We, thus, considered this an exercise
to free our minds from the tragedy, says Fernando.
||Danny Lau (winddancer):
