Don’t worry, as we’ve got it covered. Here are just a few tips to help you get the most out of your Indian adventure.
Life is a celebration and in India there are very few months that do not bring festivals. To many people it would look like an overdose of festivities and celebration because I have seen many of my international friends say that India is the only place in the world that provides 365 days of festival time. While Diwali is considered to be the biggest and grand of all, Holi certainly plays an important role in bringing people together. Although, I do not celebrate Holi personally, because of the chemical-based colors that people use, I am still going to celebrate in a grand style, because I also celebrate my birthday on that day. So, March 16 is a Sunday, Holi-day and my birthday, now what else could I have asked for right at the beginning of the year.
Diwali is just around the corner and if you are in Delhi then you are at the right place at the right time. Delhi celebrates Diwali in a grand style and therefore it is the best place for shoppers where they can find tons of shopping items that they can use for the festive season. Although, I am from Mumbai, but I believe that Delhi offers a better shopping experience especially for budget consumer like me who looks out for better bargain deals and discounts and offers at every other shop that I pass through. 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. I was just reading The Economic Times and it says that according to ASSOCHAM (The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India) Delhi will see around 40% slash in their Diwali budget because of the inflation that has hit the nation. 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.
