Weekend calling: It’s a Sharbat Mela
A refreshing pit stop for all the residents of Delhi has been organised by Delhi Tourism at Dilli Haat, INA. As the mercury sears high and Delhi is reeling under the June heat spell, Sharbat Mela treats you with an amazing blend of traditional ethnic drinks such as <g data-gr-id="29">thandai</g>, lassi, <g data-gr-id="30">jaljeera</g>, mango shake, <g data-gr-id="36">aam</g> <g data-gr-id="31">panna</g>, <g data-gr-id="32">sattu</g>, <g data-gr-id="33">kokam</g> apart from <g data-gr-id="34">chuski</g>, Kulfi, <g data-gr-id="35">faluda</g>, cold coffee, ice creams and fresh fruit juices. The idea behind organising this mela is to provide Delhiites with a cool, natural escape from the heat.
The three-day-long <g data-gr-id="17">mela</g> that commenced on June 5 displays traditional products like <g data-gr-id="18">ittar</g>, <g data-gr-id="19">gulabjal</g> and herbal mehndi.
The special attraction at the fest this year are the organic squashes and juices from Navdanya such as drinks made of Ladakh Himalayan berries, sea buckthorn and rhododendron juice from the blood red flowers of Himalayan tree which are both refreshing as well as hold medicinal value.
Companies like <g data-gr-id="21">Hitkari</g>, Hamdard, Simbhavli Sugar Mill, Mother Dairy and Aroma are among those participating in the <g data-gr-id="22">mela</g> this year and selling their products.
