Shakrain: The festival of kite, light and fire

Have you ever seen Dhaka's sky flooded with kites, lights and fireworks? 

This year the celebration of Poush Sankranti (the end of Bengali month Poush) popularly known as Shakrain or Ghuri Utshob brings life to the most congested part of the Old Dhaka. 

In recent times, apart from colourful kites flying in the sky, people are also entertained by fire-spinners and flame-eaters who also gather on rooftops to demonstrate their skills.
