Ashok Shah is a renowned International Kiteist. He has won many National as well as International awards. He recently also registered an
world record for conducting Kite making workshop for more than 1000 students at a time(Solapur).As a child he was interested in making and flying traditional Indian fighter kites. He would even dream about kites in his sleep.
In the year 1993 his son and daughter demanded some unique shapes in kites like the Spiderman, birds, and aero planes. These kites were not available in any of the markets in Mumbai, Ahmedabad or Surat. His wife suggested that that he should try making these shapes as he was a very good artist and was good at making kites from his childhood. Since then he has never looked back and his passion continues even till date.. And rest is history.
In this journey which brought him name and fame as India's top modern kite designer and flyer, he would like to thank all his well wishers and supporters from his family, from his home town-Dahanu as well all his national and international kiteist friends
Shah has achieved success because of his passion, dream, dedication
and and of course support of his family and well wishers.
Well he does not want to stop here and has further ambitions and would be glad to add more names to his well wishers and sponsors list.
He has a dream of representing India
at various international kite festivals organized all over the world. Financial constrain is the major deterrent - designing and making kites of international standard is expensive and hence personal resources are not sufficient to cover expenses for foreign tours.
