  1. There is no hesitation to declare Belgaum as an enthusiastic city. Belgaum has become more lively and is becoming more lively day by day. A permanent location for International Kite flying festival and a place for Exhibition on the lines of Pragati Maidan of Delhi is very much required.

  2. Great! I feel it will give even greater boost to this event if some VIP inaugurates it. Someone like- the CM, a union minister or a noted nature/arts enthusiast.

  3. We need to advertise it, alot.. none will know its happening, It would be nice if the organisers spend some money and let people all over know thru newspapers repeatedly with pics… it will be an big event!
