THE LONE DIWALI SHOP

Diwali/Deepavali/Festival of lights usually comes in the beginning of November (11th or 12th this year). This not-so-little shop of mud Diyas (oil lamps) and terracotta art work has been here for more than a month now – which is a little surprising because the city markets are flooded with these shops a month to a week before the festival. What’s more surprising is that it isn’t located at a market but on the platform of a main road. A treat to the early shoppers!
