Dubai: With Dhanteras and Diwali round the corner, the festive spirit has gripped the Indian community in Dubai.


Heralding the festival of lights, decorative lightings adorn rows of apartments in Bur Dubai, Al Karama and other areas where Indians live in large numbers.


Jewellery outlets in the city are already flooded with pre-orders for gold ornaments and coins as tens of thousands of Hindus will be rushing to buy gold on the auspicious occasion of Dhanteras this weekend.


Almost 80 per cent of customers make a booking for gold at least two weeks in advance, according to Sanjay Jethwani and Vinay Jethwani, managing directors of Meena Jewellers.
