Clash of Era’s
Diwali is one of the most significant festivals which is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains for a variety of reasons, although the main theme which runs throughout is the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. To celebrate, houses are decorated with candles and colourful lights and huge firework displays are held while families feast and share gifts. It is also a tradition for homes to be cleaned and new clothes to be worn at the time of the festival. During this time, a lot of offers on various items are thrown into the market. Let it be on electronics, home essentials, books, home furniture and on clothes as well. There is heavy Diwali clothing discount during the same time and people enjoy the discount by shopping to the best of their ability.
People disburse their money effectively and efficiently as the sale provides so much discount. This period also gives people chance to refurbish their houses with new electronic equipment, buy new clothes for the celebrations and invest in jewellery. People wait for the Diwali sales to buy the necessities of their houses, or shopping for the marriages that are scheduled in the near future. Many people who cannot afford the things otherwise wait for the Diwali sales as they find it convenient to shop at that time and the prices fit into their pockets.

Like a coin has two sides, online shopping also has its other side. Some people still prefer the ordinary shopping. Some people need to have the personal touch of clothes. Many people do not know how to use the cell phones or the laptops and many are illiterate as well. Some aged people do not believe in online shopping, many of them doubt on the cloth and the brand. Some are hesitant while sharing their personal information with the sites. Some are impatient and cannot wait for the product to arrive.
