What is the logic behind purchase of Gold on Akshara Thritiya?Akshara Thritiya is being celebrated tomorrow and it is one of the reasons for the hike of gold rate during the past one week. Don't know exactly the mythological reasons but people strongly believe that purchase of Gold even 1 gm on that day would favour them luck and blessing of almighty. Never before I observed or might have ignored if my parents had too the sentiment but found it more prevalent in the state of Maharastra when I was living in Pune twelve years back. This trending continued in other parts including the Southern states and in Odisha too. May be I styarted observing it after my stay at Pune.
The belief is now on its high pitch and one argument is that it is the tactic of the Gold business to attract more customers and thus luck is favouring to them to sell at higher rate. But what is the logic behind the customary purchase of Gold on the eve of Akshara Thritiya? I could have asked it in AE section but wanted to know more from our active Forum contributors.
