Kite is taken as a symbol of having high aspirations and elevated vision.
Considering this, on the 14th of January, 2019, a contest of kite flying was held on the sprawling field of SBPS, Ranchi on the eve of Makar Sankranti. The competition took place in two groups, junior (Grade VI-VIII) and senior (Grade IX-XII). There were two participants from each house in both the groups. The students flew their colourful kites in the beautiful surroundings with an attempt to keep their kites airborne for as long as possible.
In the junior group Samveda house emerged victorious. The 2nd and the 3rd positions were bagged by Rigveda and Atharvaveda house respectively. In the senior group, again Samveda house emerged victorious. The 2nd and 3rd positions were bagged by Atharvaveda and Rigveda respectively.
