A little something for everyone

A little something for everyone

Noble effort

Usually it is held on the first Saturday of December but this time due to unforseen circumstances, the organisers had to postpone it by a week. But that didn’t stop the regulars of the bazaar from visiting it.

From children in cute Santa hats wandering all over the place to stall owners using all their energy in decorating their stalls, the whole place had a festive feel to it.  Many stalls had a good variety of Christmas decorations and even greeting cards.

Nirmala Menon, who has been visiting this bazaar for nearly 15 years, said, “I simply love all the things on sale. Be it the cute embroidered hand-kerchiefs, the cotton bags or the hand-made lanterns. What’s even more noble is the fact that its all for charity. Every time I see myself bargaining, I keep quiet because after all, the money is going for charity.”

Agrees Soumya Briganza, who enjoyed the food items available at the bazaar.  “This is the first time I am coming to a bazaar like this. I see so many unique things here that one generally doesn’t find in the market. I picked up wines and home-made jams as well,” she added.

While the adults were busy shopping for home decor and Christmas ornaments, the children feasted on the food items and little bags and badges promoting adoption of Indian puppies.

Nikara and Ananya, fourth standard students, filled their little purses with many little goodies. “We wanted to contribute to one of the charities in our own way. So we decided to pool in and buy badges with puppies on them to support the Indian puppies,” they gushed.

No doubt there was something for everyone out there and the Christmas songs playing in the background only added to the carnival spirit.
