Keep shopping till you can!

I arrived in the airport only to be informed that my flight had been delayed. I had arrived well in time, and now I had a couple of hours more in hand.

For once, I did not seem to mind at all, as I was in Terminal 3 (T-3) of Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi. It was renovated a few years back, and being in the building itself lifts your spirits.

Perhaps it would not be wrong to say that shopping gives maximum pleasure to a woman. And T-3 is a paradise on earth for shopping and eating - there is something for everyone. I was travelling right after my marriage, and had already bought some token gifts for everyone in both families, especially the children.

"What is the harm in window shopping?", I thought to myself and walked around.  I was attracted to the Delhi Duty Free shop. Till date, I thought duty free shops were an international concept. I was pleasantly surprised to see one in Delhi and stepped in.


The image above will give you a glimpse of what I found in it - the essence of India. You can keep shopping till time binds you, for everything one may wish to buy is available -  souvenirs, chocolates, tea and more!

I was excited to find some perfumes that were not available on the shelves of even premium outlets - the pleasant sales girl told me that the perfumes as well as some other products have been made exclusively available at Delhi Duty Free to test the market response.

Don't think that shopping at the airport is expensive - in fact, prices of items were lower than usual, because the local taxes etc were not applied.


Aah, now I have a new shopping destination where I can shop till the last minute!
