The Surajkund Crafts Fair 2018 is on in full swing at Surajkund – Delhi / Haryana border. The Surajkund metro station at Badarpur has made the place way more accessible. No wonder, it is a much sought after event not only for craft lovers but for anyone willing to spend a day among colour.
Surajkund Crafts Fair is a great endeavour to showcase the beauty and diversity of Indian handloom and handicrafts. It draws visitors from Delhi NCR, other parts of India and even overseas. The 32nd edition is to be held at Surajkund, Haryana in just a couple of weeks. The upcoming Surajkund Mela 2018 has already evoked palpable excitement among the crafts fans and general mela goers.
The famous Delhi spirit is that people here are up for all sorts of celebrations – fasting, feasting, partying and so on. In ode to this spirit we thought of covering as many aspects of the holiday season as we could on Delhi-Fun-Dos. Shopping and gifting are an integral part of the holiday season and here is our experience of the store Super99.
The Grand Venice mall is an amazing shopping destination in Greater Noida. It surprised us in many ways. For starters they have fantastic dining facilities at Terrazzo – Food Court. Replete with a host of food options and cuisines, this could be a sole reason to visit the place. It also boasts of the largest Masti Zone in Delhi NCR. Then there is more that we discovered here.
DLF Cyberhub has organised a cultural exchange festival “The Global Gate” in association with One World Foundation. The featured country this year is Afghanistan. This five days long exhibition presents a fusion of Indian and Afghani art, culture, handloom and handicraft.
DLF Mall of India is converted into a Winter wonderland for Christmas this December. Along with Hamleys they have organised a host of fun activities for kids this festival season.
DLF Place Saket recently held a three evening long festival – The Nite Owl Festival 2.0. It was a flea market setting with shops and boutiques selling clothes, accessories and winter wear. But then, shopping was just one of the activities and the focus seemed to be a complete Fun-do experience.
Artisans Emporio is a store that brings forth handcrafted products and articles that cater from regular usage items to special gifts. But that is not enough as they do much more. They make festivals a little brighter and we do not mean they make lamps and lights.
Diwali is the festival of lights. It lights up everything from home to hearts. And a kindled heart wants to share. Share joy, happiness and good tidings. Perhaps this is the philosophy, the ethos behind giving gifts to near and dear ones. Family, relatives, friends, colleagues, neighbours. DLF Mall of India is all set to turn the shopping experience of visitors into a special affair with Happy Dealwali festival.
DLF Place Mall, Saket is holding an exhibition Weaves of India at their foyer. The fair has been organised to usher in the festival season. It also coincides with India’s 70th Independence Day celebrations.
