Dwarka markets have been buzzing as the festivals are approaching and customers are on overdrive to shop in preparation for Diwali. Utensils and dry fruit shops in Dwarka have their shutters pulled up for the shoppers as the three-day Diwali festivities came their way this weekend.
Meanwhile, utensil shop owners in Dwarka sector-6 & 10 areas were seen offering more than usual options for Dhanteras. Several shops were flooded with buyers while others were busy packing the pre-booked gifts to be delivered the next morning.
The Dwarka market is flooded with hawkers selling colourful diya (a small cup-shaped oil lamp made of baked clay), stuffs for worship, organic rangoli colours and idols.
As for rangoli, three types of varieties can be found. The first one is the rangoli stickers which, as per the shopkeepers, is the least favourite among buyers so far.
The other two are hard colours which is used to make freehand rangoli and 'rice' colour which is much finer and is used when designs are created using pattern sheets.
Many shops were already decked up with colourful lights and lanterns.
