Kite flying therapy for mentally sick
by: Dr.Devinder pal singh Sehgal

There is no other sport in this world which is better than Kite flying. It is very useful not only for kids, young persons, Senior citizens but also for mentally sick persons. Most of mentally sick persons are kept in indoors for most the time.

Kite flying therapy can be used for curing such persons. Of course it is slow process but can definitely work. Nature is the best healing factor along with the Wind, The Sun, The Earth, Sea, Mountains, Trees etc., can act as medicine for curing sick persons.

Sick persons would definitely feel better and cheerful by flying kite under the Sky. We all must Use Kite flying Therapy for Happy, Cheerful and long long stress free life.

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

"I decided to run kite making as an elective again on this camp in the past week - so I bought all your e-books, a bunch of materials, and then took a group of 10 high school students through making the kites over 4 days. We built a diamond, a Barn Door, a Delta, and two skew delta kites. Again - every single kite flew."

"I've just bought your super e-book and spent most of last night pouring through all the great stuff in it!

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
