So Delhi 7 Oct 2019


Delhiites know their game when it comes to all things celebrations! If you’re a true Dilli wala, you’d know that for us, Diwali ain’t a mere one-day celebration, rather it’s a month-long fiesta and we don’t leave an ounce of possibility to miss out on any festivities. For some fun, we’ve culled out a list of things that every Delhiite does during Diwali. Read on for we know you’ll relate to it big time.

Festivities certainly call for some new clothes and so we all head out to the places that we’ve been habitually frequenting year in and year out and splurge away. Some of these include Lajpat Nagar, Nehru Place and loads more, plus some dive into high-end exhibitions and come up with designer haul just for Diwali season!

2. Either Host Or Attend A Taash Party

Okay, since no Diwali celebration is ever complete without a grand taash party, we Delhiites love to either host or attend one (or 10). The absolute frenzy of family and friends gatherings for drunk nights or the adrenaline rush of winning and losing moolah is inexplicable, isn’t it? And also so much fun!

3. Attend The Blind School Diwali Mela

The onset of Diwali is generally marked by brightening up our houses with pretty diyas and the Sarojini Nagar Diya Market has everything for it. From the plain, old-fashioned simple diyas to the traditionally designed ones, they’ve got them all to adorn your homes with - go get yours, if you haven’t already dropped by!

5. Head Out To Extravagantly Decorated Malls

Though we usually head to these places all year round, during Diwali season it becomes sort of mandatory to be there. After all, Select CITYWALK, Ambience in Gurgaon, DLF Mall of India and all the other such places are so beautifully decorated that we just can’t get our eyes off them!
