Cracker Market at Sadar Bazaar
Submitted by Abdullah on Sat, 03/11/2007 - 12:50

Cracker Market at Sadar BazaarSadar Bazar in Delhi is the main supply source for crackers that resound throughout the city on the eve of the Diwali. The market becomes so busy with hordes of people buying the crackers, that it is often difficult to ask for the prices of the crackers that they buy. Even the roadside vendors selling phuljharis allow you no time for negotiation of prices.

Almost two weeks before Diwali, the Sadar bazaar becomes a complete “no smoking zone”, to keep any untoward incident from happening. The shop keepers post bold notices as well as employ guards to keep a strict vigil on the smokers.

For Delhites, it makes sense to buy crackers from the Sadar Bazaar, as they can hope to buy genuine products at reasonable costs, but be warned that at this time the area resembles a mad house. Let alone driving a car into the market, even making your way through it on foot is a feat in itself.

Almost all the shops selling crackers are located on the Qutub road area of the market. The narrow lanes here are choked with pedestrians, hand driven carts, rickshaws and cars.

Prices of crackers in recent times have touched the sky and traders attribute it to the recent major fires in Sivakasi. You have to shell out Rs.200 for a pack of ‘anaar’ and Rs. 50 for a pack of ‘chakris’.

The cracker market has been institutionalized. All member traders of the association buy their goods from those manufacturers who comply with the safety norms. The big shops sell branded crackers. So it makes sense to come to Sadar Bazar to buy crackers.

Each year the cracker market at Sadar Bazaar has something new to offer. This year it sells sky items such as the 1000-shot sky shower. It is the hottest bomb and it also costs a bomb, a cool Rs. 8,500. The prices are negotiable.

So if you want to buy anaars, bullets, rockets, golis and ladis, head for Sadar Bazar.  But you must also listen to what the environmentalists have to say.

 A word of caution: you will have to park your vehicle some 1-1.5 kilometer away from the market owing to the rush of customers.
