Many of the Indian festivals have scientific reasons behind their celebration. There are a number of health and spiritual benefits which this festival offers. During winter it is common for the body to get afflicted with various infections such as cold and cough. Skin also gets dry. Sun acts as a medicine and eradicates infection. By flying kites children and adults are exposed to the sun which provides many health benefits. Exposure to sunlight provides you with a dose of Vitamin D. People do not directly face the sun while flying kites rather their backs are faced towards the sun. Flying kites also makes the arm muscles stronger. People keep their eyes on the flying kite which improves vision. Flying kites is a good exercise for legs and eyes.
