Indian author and mythologist
In Hinduism, when it comes to rituals and celebrations, timing is everything, and every action carries meaning. Renowned Indian mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik talks on what fuels people to buy gold on special occasions like Akshaya Trithiya and Diwali and what makes them refrain from making such a purchase during certain periods. The mythologist refers to the various tales in the Hindu mythology that spread the belief of good things happening on auspicious days and the presence of undesirable aura surrounding inauspicious days.
