In reality only those who are very busy or enjoy the extreme crowds will shop on the day just before Diwali. Most people shop a few weeks to a few months ahead of Diwali to avoid the crowds. The most crowded place in Chennai is T. Nagar-- Pondy Bazaar and Ranganathan street. All the famous shops are here like Pothy's, Nalli's, The Chennai Silks, Sarvana Stores, etc. For jewelery the famous shops are GRT, Lalitha's, among others. One year I went to Nalli's just before Diwali. It is just unbearable. You can not walk nor can you see anything. But, if you go to Chennai, don't miss Nalli's, as it is one of the largest sari shops in Chennai.
Anyhow, for Diwali, most people buy silk (pattu silk or pure silk) saris with a lot of zari, fancy salvaar kamiz for college students, dhoties, lungies or pants and shirts for men and young boys, and pavada davani (half-sari) for the teenage girls. Some families
