Subject:𡧳 (赛) 风筝 - Kite Fight is the title of this painting

I am now 99.99% sure that the top pencil inscription on the back of this painting is the title of the painting:
𡧳风筝 - Kite Fight (or Kite Fight Competition)
Normally,𡧳 should be written as 赛, but it can also be written as 𡧳 (see first picture for examples of using 𡧳)
It is usually used together with 比 to form the compound word 比𡧳 (比赛) bi sai which means competition (race).
In this case I believe Kite Fight would be the better translation because Kite Fight is just like dog fights between fighter aircrafts. This is an art in Asia, including Hong Kong, where people will fly kites and try to cut down the strings of the kite of others. The final kite remain will be the winner. I had watched quite a few of these kite fights in Hong Kong myself but unfortunately our team was always on the losing side.
You can see some kite fights in these links:
Hope this helps.
"Fighter kites are kites used for the sport of kite fighting. Traditionally most are small, unstable single-line flat kites where line tension alone is used for control, and an abrasive line is used to cut down the string/line of other kites.
Kite fighting is done in many countries, but is particularly associated with Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, and Brazil."
