Thanks for the informative post on Akshaya Thruthiyai, the significancce of the word Akshayam and the picture of Mahalakshmi. Everything in the post was new to me. Like all our fellow ILites, I too liked the part where you extended on the benefits of doing charity, helping physically challenged people and helping poor students' education best. Thanks for bringing out such lost significances that really matter. It would be really nice if the Jewellery shops start advertising that the wealth will multiply manyfold if people buy jewellery on this day and gift it to the needy people. This makes me remember the gifting of pachai pudavai a few years back.... -Gayathri.
