"Shanghai closes at 11:00 pm daily. We don't host parties as such but yes, our parcel sale is at peak for the whole day, and specially at the night time. This year, we are surely going to register a 50% fall in our business. A lot of people will sit at home and prefer homemade food because they aren't going anywhere. However, many youngsters will celebrate together at their homes and their orders will save the day for us. "

"11:00 pm to 12:30 am is the main time for earning. Be it autowalas, restaurant or any other business, they wait for the night hours. This year, as people will stay at home, our business will register a 20% fall in two main hours of the night I mentioned above. People won't leave the house because of police, and we cannot send parcel for a longer period of time as the State government has imposed a curfew. Every year, we host parties and a lot of groups visit our hotel to celebrate the night of 31th. There's music, dancing and good food. We just hope that 2021 will be better.”
