Literal Breakdown

Notes

The male kite is a very specific type of kite, which is usually over 2 metres (6 feet) high, and has a shape like a 5-point rocket: a point at the top, a pointed fin at each side, and two points at the bottom.  It is used for fighting between kites, traditionally against what is known as the female kite.

Every kite-flying competition is a battle of the sexes between the male Chula and the female Pakpao. The former is dominant and aggressive, the latter is flighty and clever. He sets out to capture her; she, though smaller, has many tricks and can ensnare her man with cunning. The outcome of the competition, as in real life, is no foregone conclusion.
