Despite Pandemic The City is All Decked up for Dussehra This Year
Of course, the pandemic hasn’t taken off the sheen from the Dussehra and Navratri celebrations this year, unlike last year when everything was gloomy.

The festive season has kicked off, and it will be festival after festival from now on. Naturally, this has got the Hyderabadis super-excited, and they can be seen shopping, eating out, and having a good time in general. However, there is that lurking fear as the pandemic hasn’t died down, and there are stories about children needing vaccinations.


On its part, the government of Telangana has started the Sunday Funday concept on Tank Bunk on Sundays, which has become an experiential outing for many who are enjoying the flea market-like atmosphere alongside the Hussain Sagar Lake.


But not everyone is being so adventurous. Some are trying to be safe and secure by going for long drives and organizing intimate family celebrations. Of course, the pandemic hasn’t taken off the sheen from the celebrations this year, unlike last year when everything was gloomy.




People can be seen mall hopping and checking out various eateries. Also, this year, the government has allowed limited gatherings for Navaratri, and just about all communities who celebrate it are happy. There are the Garba dos at gated communities and some pandals, then there are Durga pandals, which have made it clear that entry will be limited and mostly pre-booked. Of course, Dussehra festivities in Telangana mean Bathukamma and women are dressing up to make up for last year and participating in the festival.


The famous Keyes High School pandal has now been shifted to Mahbub College grounds. Then there are other Bengalis who have decided to stay home and watch the celebrations live on YouTube and order food from popular joints such as Aqua at The Park, Sarkar’s Kitchen, Hyatt Palace, among others.


Then there are other families that are going out on family picnics in their attempt to stay away from crowds. Surely, the city is once again living up to the good times!
