Diwali is around the corner. The precursor to this festival is Diwali shopping. No wonder we see a host of fairs and exhibitions being organised routinely this time of the year. Two most popular fairs in Delhi NCR are Blind School Diwali Mela and Sundernagar Diwali Mela. We have been getting a host of queries as to which fair to attend. To make it a little easier for you, below is a comparison.
The dates for upcoming Blind School Diwali Mela 2017 are here. It’s a week long Diwali Fair and entry is free for all. Blind School Diwali Fair is one of the best options for festival shopping in Delhi. Known for stalls by various NGOs, the fair offers Diwali Gift options such as Chocolate and cookies, Diwali Decor items, hand made lamps, clothes, home accessories, artware etc.
Chinese lights are posing stiff competition to the consumable sector including Diwali lights. Many in Delhi decided to shun Chinese made lights this Diwali and reverted to clay diyas. However various organisations are manufacturing electric Diwali lights. Happy Diwali – Indian style.
Blind School Diwali Mela is drawing visitors from all over NCR and beyond. The students of this institution create a host of products that light up our lives. Additionally, this year there is a unique installation that is not for sale. But for absorption. We are humbled by the experience.
We wish you all a Happy, Safe and Prosperous Diwali.
