Surat (Gujarat), Jan 13 (ANI): Ahead of Uttarayan festival, the students of IDT Fashion Institute in Surat have decided to celebrate the occasion with unique ideas. In a survey, students found that birds are afraid of red colour, smell of garlic and mint. Therefore, the students decided to use these in making of kites and kite-strings. Every year, hundreds of birds get injured with string cuts. Gujarat celebrates the Uttarayan festival, popularly known as the festival of kites on January 14. The festival is dedicated to Sun God.
