Show people where to shop for Diwali

diwali-17-connect.gifCaption: Happy Diwali


It’s almost time for the brightest and happiest Indian festival—Diwali! One of the best parts about this time of year is the shopping. From furniture and appliances to colorful salwar kameez and saris (with matching jewelry!), everything gets a sparkling makeover in Diwali.


This is the time to help people celebrate by sharing photos from the best places to shop. As Local Guides, you know which stores have the best deals, the latest styles, and the most mouth-watering sweets. When you add photos while you’re shopping for yourself or for family and friends, you’ll let people see inside these places on Google Maps. Whether you’re going to buy sweets and snacks, dresses and saris, or watches and jewelry, share your secret haunts with the world and spread the festive cheer!


To give your fellow Guides the complete picture, share three kinds of photos at each shop:


  1. The first impression. When you first walk in, take a wide shot that captures what it’s like inside. Get as much of the shop as you can to give people an idea of the space. Try to take pictures in the daylight.

  2. The goods and services. Now that you’re inside, show what the business is selling. Take photos of the shelves of sweet boxes, small mountains of laddoos, or carefully arranged jewelry. Frame the photos well, capturing the items in the shop while paying attention to color, composition, proportion.

  3. The closer look. Next, capture some of your personal favorites. If a shop’s best item is its Mysore Pak, or has the best collection of rangoli colors, take a picture. Through this photo, guide people to your favorite item in the shop.

You can spotlight all kinds of places that you visit during Diwali. If it’s a smaller shop selling Diwali Puja items such as supari, marigold flowers, or incense sticks, it might not be on the Map. But you can still add the photos to a permanent location around it.


And don’t forget: You can add as many photos as you like from each location. Every photo you add fetches you points, bumping you up to a higher level. Help others with their shopping so they can have their best Diwali yet!
