So you go fly kites today.

Kaushalya: I talked the pujari of Govindaji's temple into giving Prabhupada a house on the temple grounds. We cleaned this house, and Prabhupada came. He was very pleased. One day while the pandal program was going on, I said, "Prabhupada, it's kite-flying season. The sky is covered with kites." He said, "Are you going to fly kites today?" I said, "No, I wasn't thinking of it." He said, "I used to fly kites with my sister Pishima when I was young. Her kite always flew higher than mine and that made me angry. One day I decided to cheat and I flew my kite from the roof. My kite flew higher than my sister's, until she started chanting, "Govinda, Govinda, help me." Then her kite flew higher than mine. Even in our childhood we were always remembering Krishna." Finally he said, "So you go fly kites today."
