A kite demonstration will be held by Team Mangalore in the World Cultural Jamboree and a huge kite has been prepared exclusively for the event.

Indian traditional kite made of umbrella cloth measuring  50 feet in height and  16 feet in width is being prepared.

The work of putting the finishing touches to the kite was done at Gokula Kalyana Mantapa on Monday by members of Team Mangalore and artists. Traditional and folk motifs have been drawn on the kite.
