Dilli Haat is one of our favorite joints because it is so colorful. For this lazy Sunday I have some pictures from Dilli Haat. The Sunday was not really lazy because Chhavi and I went there today. When she was very small she used to think that shops were to look at and not to buy stuff. How blissful was that phase!

Dilli Haat

Then came a period when she would ask for almost everything she saw! We started by telling her that she could have two things on a trip. For a while it was difficult to restrict her. But surprisingly that too passed quite soon. For example, I offered her to buy these Christmas decorations and she told me she didn’t want them! This also caught me by surprise.

Colorful Threads

These colorful threads are kept at the entrance of Dilli Haat. The ladies offer to weave it through your hair! Chhavi told me next time she would get her hair weaved! I am all for it. But sometimes I shudder to think what would it be like when she becomes a teenager! She was asking me yesterday why people wear an earring on their lips!

Necklaces

I usually visit Dilli Haat with my sister. We both go and have a sabudana vada first. I did the same this time as well. But somehow it didn’t taste the same without her. But getting back to Chhavi and her shopping, she was content with a few things and refused many! Now if only she would keep this up!

I usually do not like to venture out anywhere in NCR. When I get out I want to put at least 250 kilometers between me and NCR. But as Chhavi enjoys these outings so much, I am making an effort these days!

I am headed to India in 2 weeks time and have made Dilli Haat a must stop! I’ve read all your blog posts but I just wanted to ask if you had an specific recommendations?
I collect xmas ornaments when I travel so I hope those above will still be available when I head there soon they are beyond beautiful! Do you mind me asking approximately how much they were?

Hi Jade, hope you will have a good trip. There are two Dilli Haats I go to the one near INA. It is a small place so you can roam around and see it all. As for the price I did not ask but it would be a few dollars only!

I enjoy going to Dilli Haat too, esp as it is so near my uncle’s place, which is where i usually stay when i am in delhi. but then i hardly ever click pics since i am so busy ogling at everything in sight! and can so understand chhavi wanting outings like this! and you are so lucky she doesnt want you to buy everything in sight!

Anu it is a recent phenomenon where she doesn’t want to buy everything. I hope it lasts!

I remember at one stage kids drive you mad on your visits to fairs etc,then one day suddenly you realize that no demand is coming forth-and that TOO is very disturbing!

Yes Indu :D I so agree.

A riot of colours..
This what I love about festivals…
There is colour all around and like or not you get pulled into the festive spirit and forget every tension you have.
Thank you for the post..

Delhi Haat is an incredible, colorful and charming place. You can spend hours without knowing how the time passes. if you are not careful it can burn a hole in your pocket too :)

Mridula December 21, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Very true the hole in the pocket part.

Its such a wonderful place to visit…so much of India can be seen in a small place. We have something similar here in Hyderabad its called Shilparamam
