ISLAMABAD: To break away from the humdrum of routine, a spring festival was organised at the premises of the National University of Modern Languages on Friday. As music blared, students from different colleges congregated to flying kites. With the sky full of colourful kites, boys and girls stood in groups enjoying channa chat and gol gappas. A few girls could also be seen flying kites, with some help from their male counterparts. Some students burst in bhangra moves after a particularly good save on their kite pumped by the dhol beats, being played by a dholak band garbed in yellow. While some were engrossed in intense matches of kite flying, others browsed through an assortment of stalls, with dresses, jewellery and decoration pieces on it.
