AIR PIC
The festival of Makar Sankranti is being celebrated with traditional reverence and gaiety in the state. Devotees are taking a dip in the holy river and lake from early in the morning. AIR correspondent reports, there is a noise of ‘Woh Kata - Woh Kata' in pink city Jaipur today from early in the morning amidst loud music. Every person is busy in kiting whether he is common or a special. Seems the entire city has come on the roofs of their homes.

On this auspicious day, people are offering kites, sesame seed and jaggery dishes to each other. The kite festival organized every year for domestic and foreign tourists has been canceled due to COVID this time.
 
A large number of devotees are reaching Pushkar Sarovar in Ajmer for taking  holy bath. Several customs and rituals are also being performed. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has appealed to people for safe kite flying.
