Deadly strings

Kite strings may seem harmless, but they can actually be quite lethal. Traditionally made from materials like cotton or nylon, some modern kite strings are coated with abrasive materials like glass or metal particles. This coating makes them razor-sharp and extremely dangerous. When these chemical-coated strings come into contact with human skin, they can cause severe lacerations, leading to life-threatening injuries or even death. It's truly devastating to think that a moment of joy can turn into a nightmare because of an unnoticed thread. In Pakistan, the manufacturing process of kite strings needs to be closely examined.

It is crucial to ensure that safety measures are in place to prevent the production of these lethal strings. Raising awareness about the dangers of kite strings and promoting responsible kite flying practices can also play a significant role in preventing such tragic incidents.
