Pre puja

The Pre-Puja Diwali Haat, held in association with t2 on October 9 and 10 at Ice-Skating Rink, was a paradise for Puja shoppers.

While saris, suits and Indo-westerns were up for sale in bright colours, complementing them was funky jewellery to jazz up your look. Just right for those pandal-hopping sprees or while hanging out with friends on Diwali!

There were also colourful cushions to choose from and pretty flowers made of ivory wood. Why not give your house a festive look this season?

“We hold the exhibition twice or thrice a year and the next one is in March,” promised Radha Somani, organiser of the exhibition and president of the Rajasthani Mahila Sangathan.

Kadam Haat had ivory wood flowers in orange and yellow. We spotted one pretty ceramic tulip too! These look great when you are hosting a dinner party. The tulip costs
Rs 200. The other flowers are priced at Rs 350 each
Aawarun stocked a variety of cushion covers that one could pick to add colour to the house. Each cover was priced at Rs 198
Peel, the Colour of Rajasthan, sold mojris. “They are made of leather and are hand-embroidered. They go well with saris, denims or suits,” said stall owner Shubha Kabra. The pink mojri-style sandals were priced at Rs 350 Neetu Patel’s store came alive with these wooden paper clips. The colourful and cute clips were creations of her friend Bhavya Manek. They make great presents for the little ones at home and they double as magnets too! Priced at Rs 40 each
