Universities across Delhi are all set for semester end exams in less than two weeks and predictably, this November’s schedule seems to be all packed with a ton of fun events. If you are anything like me, you would still be binge watching TV shows or obsessing over fictional characters while course books still demand prints of your technology obsessed fingers. However, life is but a series of difficult choices so let’s not mourn over the road not taken.
Here is a list of events you can chose from to attend before you hang up your going out shoes and do, eventually, submit to academics.

I don’t think this requires an introduction anymore. You’ve gotta know about this, even if you’ve been living under a rock. The Trade Fair is an annual tourist attraction with lakhs of people attending every year. You will find here everything from food to furniture, electric appliances to earrings, cosmetics to chemicals, you get the idea.

Stitch in Nine
“Stitch in Nine” is Jose Neil Gomes, a 28 year old multi-instrumentalist’s, unique story telling project where he uses instruments and his voice to narrate stories.

For this event, he will be joined by a fellow Mumbai musician Dhir Mody and Spanish bassist Antón Serrats.
