Akshaya Tritiya – Just a thought of this auspicious day

Yesterday there were so many SMS’s for Akshaya Tritiya. No personal SMS but buy something like gold, silver and anything new.

The best way to reach out to the vast number of people is made easy with the mobile phone network, which has spread its tentacles across the length and breadth of the country. SMS’s have become common for marketing.

In Sanskrit, the word Akshaya means ‘the never diminishing’ and this day is believed to bring good luck and success. Who doesn’t like Luck and Success to be with them?

Here in Delhi people were in a mood to buy gold or silver on this auspicious day. And the jewellers  busy with business. Even the banks opened for some hours to make available gold coins for the buyers. Though the price of gold is climbing at such a fast speed, this yellow metal seems not to be losing its love with the people. Those who could not afford the priceless metal bought even the smallest item for the household – up to their affordable reach.

Some even started off with new ventures. It was a day when so many marriages were solemnised. The market place was buzzing with people...from the rich to the poor...all in the same mood...thought of the auspicious day...mood of buying...

In the town of Puri, the land of Lord Jagannath, it is a great day for the beginning of the construction of the Chariots for the Jagannath Rath Yatra of Puri.

As for me did some shopping. After all this is also buying something new from the market!


  1. Yeah, this season is considered auspicious. I did not get to buy any gold though :(

  2. The crowd I saw in was huge, I have nevr seen gold selling like this:)

  3. Why the sad look Madhu. Gold and its colour... shines on it any time:)

  4. Maybe people feel secured investing in gold. Renu, this yellow metal just attracts people...a special day makes the gold market special too.
