A shout went up form his opponent's side, a loud chorus of voices:
'Shame on the zebra, boys, sha-a-a-me.'
And a boy drolled out a tune from a nearby roof:
With one twist I've cut they kite, O my darling boy…
Bari began to pull and draw his string home, but some in caught it far away. He stretched it and released it, thinking that it had got entangled in some ting. Then, realizing that someone had caught it, he cursed under his breath and pulled the string hard it snapped from the middle and Bari got the remainder safely home.
Trying to get away from the mess of string around him. Bari said, more to himself than to his friend:

'I say, that was a rotten painch, would you care to fly one?'
Saying this he hurriedly went to a heap of kites lying in a corner. All of them seemed to be teen, he looked for gum, but there was none. A shout went up again from his opponent's side:

'Shame on Bari, boys, sha-a-a-me.'
Bari cursed aloud, and blowing at his nose loudly he began to repair the kite with mucus.
The whole description of the kite episode is the cultural description.
