    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....

    Mrs.C,

    I just read your post on Akshaya Truthiyai. Wonderful explanation as well.

    It is good to buy gold, clothes or the like. But like you mentioned, it would be good if we could do some charity as well and share with the less fortunate.

    Also read your post on Gita. Very educative and informative as usual.

    Dear Gayathri,
    Thanks for the feedback.
    It is sad that the focus of such auspicious days are shifted from charity to gold-shopping !
    Now the lates is lighting lamps in the entrance for mangalya balam or some such thing - I don't even remember !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear RadhaV,
    Thankyou for the feed back.
    I was wondering why you did not send a F B for Gita ! So 2 in 1, madam? No problem - just joking !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra,
    Was an informative post but had no idea that such a day ever existed. I do know the story of kuchela but did not know there was a connection indeed. You said it right that helping the needy and underprivileged is more important than buying gold. I am not sure if it was a coincidence I just came back from A's school where they held a memorial service for all the victims of this tragic college event and it did feel good after reading your post that this was held today. Sorry I think I am completely off track.

    Love,

    Dear Chitra,
    Thanks for the informative post about AT.Rightly you said rather than buying gold and diamonds in this good day if we help to some needy peoples that gives more மன திருப்தி.I knew before kuselar story but didnt think it was connected with AT.Talking about Aksaya thiridiyai I like to say one thing about you you are our Akshaya pathiram,feeding us with good things.
    Thankk you,thank you.

    love,
    mohana.

    My dear Chithra

    That was wonderful write up abt Akshaya Truthiyai. I too know the story of Kuchela but was unware that it is associated with Akshya Truthiyai. The photo of Mahalakshmi was also nice. Thanking u for yet another enlightening post.

    Regards
    Priya

    Dear Chitra Garu,
    Thank you for an ecxellent post on Akshaya Thruthiyai.As you said it would be good to help poor and needy rather than being selfish by buying gold or valuable things for ourselves on this auspicious day,I do know the Kuchela-SriKrishna story but didn't know the connecion with the Akshaya Thruthiyai.Thank you for this informative write up.

    Love :)

    Mrs. C,
    Thanks for one more piece of knowledge to keep my grey cells active. I didn't know the background for the celebration & thought it was just some marketing strategy.
