It is said that the occasion brings bliss, grace and prosperity to those who perform holy rites, rituals, and ceremonies on this day. While some couples willingly choose the day to tie their knot and commence a life full of fortunes, others prefer purchasing gold as it is the symbol of wealth and growth.
