Mohammad Ahmed has been selling kites for the past 11 years, and he says he has never seen it so busy. Sales at his shop in Delhi have soared over the past six months, thanks to coronavirus. Mr Ahmed says that most days since India went into lockdown on 25 March he has restocked his shop with kites worth a total 150,000 rupees ($2,000; British pound 1,500), only for them to sell out by the evening. He is getting calls from 'from all over the country.' Ahsan Khan, a seller in Mumbai, said 'The period between April and August is usually the leanest [for kite sales]. But this year, I have sold about 500,000 kites [during that time].'
