It doesn’t seem possible, but Dr. Devinder Pal Singh Sehgal of Chandigarh, India, has managed to make kites so small they pass through the eye of a needle. The kites measure 2.1 by 2.1mm (.08274th of an inch), he says. Dr. Sehgal claims his kites set a record for tiny. Any competition? As Ali Fujino, administrator of the Drachen Foundation, says of this curiosity, “I love this stuff. India needs more cable TV. These people have too much time.”
