City's delicious thirst quenchers

In the city’s soaring temperatures, what else than a refreshing treat of aam panna or mango shake? With this thought in mind, Delhi Tourism organised the annual Sharbat Mela at Dilli Haat in north west Delhi’s Pitampura.

The three-day event saw thirst quenchers ranging from traditional drinks like thandai, lassi, sattu and kokam to modern drinks like Hamdard products, Guruji and Mother Dairy specialities. The drinks and juices were available for display and sale as a part of the exhibition.

Fruits and the plant juices grown organically like mango, lemon, ginger, litchi, pudina squash were also available. Tasty, healthy and refreshing concentrate of fresh fruits seemed to be an instant hit with young and old alike.

Many families had a day out as children were enjoying swings and camel rides. Apart from savouring the variety of drinks at the Mela, there were also vibrant craft stalls set up at the venue.

Among many stalls, ‘Rajasthan stall’ was the centre of attraction for its refreshing aam panna and bel sharbat. Herbal mehendi stalls and stalls of traditional perfumes like ittar, gulaabjal saw a large number of people enthusiastically visiting them. Evenings were filled with zest as the visitors

were enthralled by folk dances and cultural programs by Punjabi Academy of Art & Culture and Government of Delhi.

After the grand success of the Mela at INA Dilli Haat this year, this second edition of Sharbat Mela had visitors asking for more.
