The Nizamuddin Basti Urban Renewal Initiative is back with the Apni Basti Mela and, this time, they're celebrating 700 years of the Nizamuddin heritage.
At this three-day mela, expect everything from calligraphy, kite-making and crafts workshops to play performances by the basti kids. You can also sign up for free heritage walks (covering monuments in Nizamuddin basti), and learn all about local cuisines at the food workshops hosted by Hazarat Nizamuddin Basti's master chefs.
Residents of the basti will also be putting up stalls where you can shop for jewellery, bags, stationery and more (be sure to check out Insha-e-Noor's too). There'll be 10 to 15 food stalls offering the best of Mughlai cuisine like Chicken Korma, biryani, kebabs and desserts, to name a few. We hear that even Zaika-e-Nizamuddin will put up a stall and you absolutely cannot leave without trying their melt-in-the-mouth shamis and the most comforting besan laddoos.
