Shops selling clothes, firecrackers and sweets have been jam packed with shoppers making last minute purchases since Saturday.
Street hawkers at Luz and on the mada veedhis kept their stalls open late into the night to cater to the growing number of people heading here (photo on tis page indicates the rush).
