The shopping fever usually grips Delhi much before the festival date and shoppers stroll through narrow lanes and streets to find the best deals that they can get their hands on.

The survey also claims that most middle class families have decided to cut down their festive spending because of eroding purchasing power. So, let me take you on a ride to some of the best places in Delhi where you can enjoy Diwali shopping without worrying about your budget.

Well, I am not here to talk on social and political issues but instead I would like to highlight some great monsoon weekend getaways that are near New Delhi that can help my readers to get out of this urban cacophony and all the stress that they build up during the week.
