The Shopping Expedition

Delhi has recently witnessed mushrooming shopping complexes, malls, hyper marts among others. On the contrary, the old world charm of some traditional unorganised markets remains intact. However these shopping outlets have evolved with time.

My shopping expedition starts and ends at Kamla Nagar, this is one of the hippest hangout options for me. I am not comfortable with the idea to shop at any other shop-out, than to stroll around, on the enthusiastic streets of Kamla Nagar. The market presents a contrast of the modern and conventional, of the young and the evolved section of society. The major crowd puller towards the market is the University of Delhi North Campus.

To begun with, Bunglow Road is a paradise for the youth. Name a brand and you will find hoards of shopping outlets offering the best under the category. Lee, Levis, Spykar, UCB are the prominent ones. As you walk down towards the Bada Gol Chakkar, branded outlets of Pepe, USI, Buddy Davis, Priknit showrooms offers the youth of today a perfect shopping retreat.

Not just the branded stuff, one can take hold of hip kurtis, trendy belts, accessories, shoes, juttis, suits etc from the roadside the stalls. These stalls offers the best of the fashion at the most competitive rates.

Eating here is a pleasure-able experience. At every second step, one can easily locate an eating joint to pamper the taste buds. Chacha's chole bhature is an ultimate delicacy, which attracts visitors from the far flung areas, which certainly includes the students of the campus. Momo's point situated at a secluded spot catches the attention of the people from North east as well as the youth, despite the visible fact that many competitors Chinese eatouts have set shops right next to it, Momos point retains its charm.

Kamla Nagar is the conventional cum enthusiastic hangout option for the youth of today. Even the evolved section of the society cannot afford to offer a compulsory visit to the market during the festive seasons. My shopping expedition revolves around Kamla Nagar where I can find the best of Indian, formals and casuals, to carry home in a shopping bag.
