Australian High Commission organizes a pre Christmas fair, Oz Haat Charity Mela , at its premise in Chanakyapuri. The event does create a lot of buzz among expats and locals and parking at this time in that area is a veritable nightmare. However by way of Christmas tradition we brave such woes and try our best to attend the event . The fair was held on 4th December this year and notwithstanding other commitments we just managed to attend the fun filled affair.
The temperatures have dropped suddenly. The early morning fogs are also back. It is winter. The biggest event in winter is Christmas. A host of events are happening to welcome Christmas in Delhi. For example – the Oz Haat Charity Mela this weekend.
The 15th Oz Haat Charity Mela was held for a single day at the Australian High Commission, Chanakyapuri. It was a fun filled pre Christmas event that comprised sale of Christmas decor, local handicrafts and food items. The visitors included Indians and foreigners who looked in awe at the crafts made by NGOs. The parking scene was a little messy what with the New Delhi Palate Fest being held at the adjacent Nehru Park. But, in tune with the Yuletide spirit, we did not mind that with this event, our Christmas celebrations started a month in advance.
