Handmade chocolates to clothes, home decor to Chinese toys, Handicraft to artificial jewelry, Blind school mela has something to offer to everybody.
Lot of Feng Shui based potted plants are a regular sight at this fair. This time they had a lot of these plants in hanging variety.
Along with usual decorative stuff, the fair had a lot of Diwali specific stuff. Hanging lights to candles, candle stands and Subh Diwali danglers in all shapes and designs gave the fair a typical festival flavour.
It can be a good place to buy or book corporate gifts, only if they start a little before Diwali. Still one can do some last minute gifts shopping for clients, relatives and friends… A little offbeat gifts can be bought if you have an eye for artsy stuff.
Food stalls had Rajasthani, North Indian, Italian and street food available. Seating arrangement is not sufficient for the number of visitors. We couldn’t manage to get two chairs for us.
Parking scene is terrible. The designated parking is at Pragati Maidan which is far from the venue. We parked at India Islamic Cultural Centre and walked down to venue. We entered around 7.30. Closing time is 8 PM which is too early for people like us who like to go there after work. There’s hardly any time left to enjoy it properly.
