Diwali, the Indian festival of lights has its own conspicuous presence in Dubai, a predominantly Islāmic state. Celebrated by Indian dwellers in the city, mostly jewelers who look for a good sale, one can feel the festival’s existence as you drive by houses and shops lit by lamps and lights.

This panoramic view is visible in the Bur Dubai area where many Emiraties of Indian origin reside in densely populated apartments. It’s always lovely to know that people are still devoted to their traditions and celebrate it. In fact, festivals like Diwali are like umbilical cords, bonding Indian origin people with their mother country.

Shopping happens big time at local bazaars particularly Meena Bazaar which puts up a spirited show as October arrives. Meena Bazaar shopping is walking in tandem with a neighboring stranger for all you know there is no space to move your body in any other direction. It’s that jam-packed! Shopping mostly consists of new clothes, gold and sweet delicacies to gorge, keeping diets on the back-burner. In fact, a true shopaholic will always know about the latest trends in the market and the discounts offered in various Dubai Malls because of Diwali.

These days viewing the rising trend in gold prices, it’s no wonder that gold jewelers are feeling the positive effect of Diwali. Starting from Dhanteras and lasting till Padwa, women and girls throng jwelery outlets to try out new designs or modernize their old jewelery.

It’s just the start, for the fun never ends. Eat, Shop and Celebrate Diwali!
