The Little India enclave along Jalan Tengku Kelana, Klang is the biggest Indian street in Malaysia. Fierce competition among shop owners translate into cheaper prices for consumers, and people are literally spoilt for choice amidst the rows of shops on the left and right sides of the road, with stalls spilling onto the sidewalks and back lanes. Myriads of items such as saris, colorful accessories such as bangles and necklaces, textiles, stainless steel pots, Indian delicacies, gold and flowers are sold here. During Deepavali, the street is transformed into a colorful spectacle of light and sound befitting the “festival of light”. Most shop owners pool their resources together to decorate the street and the walkways of their shops. The street will be decorated weeks before the actual festival. The atmosphere is electrifying and traffic will be clogged up as thousands of people make their way to make their purchases. Some shop owners will also invite shoppers into their shops to sample delicacies and to celebrate the festival together.
