Is there any other day to multiply my bank balance???

Akshaya Trithiyai

It was an unheard phrase few years back...I mean, from my side. I'm not sure as to how far our blogworld friends (since most of you guys are still unmarried) hv got hands-on experience on this day.

In the recent years,thanks to the fast developing media, the phrase has got the hype as required by the Jewellery shop owners (Read The Hindu article). This day is generally celebrated as "Parasuram Jayanthi", as well as a day to do good deeds (like donations) and buy valuable items like gold, silver etc. Currently the known concept behind this phrase, is to multiply the possession of valuable assets...(you can fill it as 'Gold')

The media explosion thru Cable Tv, has made it possible for the Jewellery shop owners and customers thronging the shops till midnight thru out the state. They are even interviewed for the Primetime news in cable TVs...You can see the beaming faces.

I wonder, whether SUN TV will start making special programmes for this 'Special Akshaya Trithiyai Day' soon. I am sure that, that day is not too far.... Probably, next May-06 you may hv to view special programmes on this day.....

I hv seen the conversion of my hot-cash into jewellery in the last two / three years.. (thank god, my wife came to know about this, only then). BTW...citing those auspicious days' purchase she has increased her range during other months as well. That is another issue......

Hope this year, my wife doesn't convert too much of cash into gold. This year 11th May (tomorrow) is the D-day, targetting my wallet. The concept behind this day is to buy some gold. Hopefully, she buys within a limit... :-( :-(

Now, two questions to the readers, to make this post little more interesting :-) :-)

1) If SUN TV or JAYA TV start telecasting special programmes on this day, can we expect programmes like the oomph girl 'Rahasya's passionate interview on wearing jewels or 'Aishwarya Dhanush's jewellery shopping experience in the 'Vanakkam Thamizhgam' slot?

2) Is there any other auspicious day similar to this 'Akshaya Trithiyai' day, for multiplying my bank balance? I am hard pressed for that day... Pl. share some info. :-( :-(

Don't complain. Your wife is investing your money wisely :-)

Sun tv would probably have movies and star interviews, nothing further.

BTW, I heard from my m-i-l that this used to be custom among northies and Bongs though it is popular in the south only recently.

Hallmark or Archies type of marketing

Munimma.. From one angle, you are right...Atleast the cash is blocked somewhere. Otherwise, it doesn't stay in our hands for a long time.

Kaps, I think that is not required as Rams has displayed the photos of those jewellery that he is going to buy for his wife.(Vow! Rams what a choice!)

Rams, I found another one about Akshaya Trithiyai in the following URL Akshaya

இங்கு சிங்கப்பூரிலும் அந்தக்கூத்து உண்டு. பல சிறப்புதினங்கள்போல, இந்த அட்சய த்ரிதியை-யும் இங்கு சிங்கப்பூர் வந்துதான் தெரியும். அதிலும் கடந்த ஓரிரு வருடங்களாத்தான் - மனைவிக்கும் அதனால் எனக்கும் :)
மற்ற புத்தாண்டு போன்ற தினங்களுக்கு தமிழ்முரசில் வரும் வாழ்த்து செய்தியைவிட அதிகமாகம் இந்தமுறை கடந்தசிலதினங்களாய் சிங்கை/சிராங்கூன் பகுதியில் உள்ள அத்துணை (இந்திய, சீன) நகைக்கடைகளும் விளம்பரம் கொடுத்திருக்கிறது. நாளைக்கு அம்மணியும் கடைப்பக்கம் போறதா சொல்லியிருக்காங்க, அவங்க தோழியுடன் - எவ்ளோ பழுக்குதோ!? (இதுல்ல, நகை வாங்குவது ஒரு முதலீடு-தான… நீங்க கேம்காடர், பிடிஏ ன்னு வாங்கி வீண்டிக்கறதுக்கு இது தேவலாம்னு விளக்கம் வேற :)
