South Ex Day Out

Article & Reviews

What’s the first thing which comes to your mind when you hear of South Extension, or South Ex, as it is popularly known? Well, there wouldn’t be just a word, but words. Glitz, glamour, happening, hush-hush, loads of lights, cars. But, what’s all this hush-hush about? It’s that one divine therapy for some, and for some it’s sheer indulgence. There’s no suspense, yes it’s SHOPPING! From clothes, bags and shoes, almost all’s available here as far as luxury and lifestyle are concerned. Pantaloons, Marks and Spencer, Lacoste, Globus, Puma, Reebok, Fab India, Levis, Lee, W and many other brands always have gates open for the quality seekers.

Youngsters especially would love to grab something for their wardrobes during the delightful discount seasons. Of course, the students would never miss a peek at small vendors in the street selling trendy apparels at reasonable prices. One can always find a mini-Sarojini Nagar everywhere. Those passing by the big showrooms and missing the luxury of bargaining , would find their oasis at such stops. People looking for some ethnic and Indianfootwear , would find the two shops located in Part 1, appealing. Apart from serving one’s patriotic nerves, these two shops are wallet friendly and flexible. The shop boasts of varieties of original Kohlapuris which go with today’s trend of fusing the Indian and the western. The quality seems durable and one can keep these for regular use.

One can satiate the jewellery desires either from the street vendors or from the glitzy showrooms of Tanishq or PC Jewellers. These give you a contrast range. Where one would be funky the other would be elegant and rich.  In South Ex, it’s almost like getting you a makeover from the scratch. You step in a Levis store, get yourself a nice fit jeans, next you go to W and find a perfect fit kurti, team up some funky jewellery from the vendors and finally go for the ethnic footwear shop and complete  today’s ‘fusion look’.
There’s lot for book lovers as well. Teksons, Midland and some others seem a good option as they have perennial discounts all through the year. These bookshops also provide up-to-date editions and latest arrivals.

At the end, with the indulgent burden making one’s hands ache, one would want to stop by and grab something. For that as well the place offers many eateries and caféswith a lot of range. The spectrum of these would not only include Café Coffee Day or Costa, but also small shops with cheaper rates. The God of fast food, McDonalds is omnipresent, in Part 1 and Part 2 both. The very famous Bombay Bhelpuri also dwells near Mcdonalds. What the shop offers include Bhelpuri, JhaliMuri , SevPuri and other things with ‘puri’ suffix. Bengali Sweets also offers not only Bengali but the usual Delhi snacks like Aloo-tikki, Samosa, Kulfi and full meal lunch as well. Stepping out of Bengali Sweets would make people notice the intelligently placed ‘mukhwas’ vendor selling the range of mouth-fresheners and digestive Indian candies.

Your hands full with shopping bags, stomach satiate with good food and mouth filled with mukhwas. Nothing better to conclude your South Ex. Day Out!
