The famous author Devdutt Pattanaik in one of his videos explains the importance of gold in Indian weddings using the concept of ‘Solah Shringaar’ and ‘Sashti Poorthi’. He emphasizes that as per Hindu culture, the bride is said to wear gold as a sign of her bringing prosperity and good fortune to the household. Given the high price of gold these days, especially in cities like Delhi and Mumbai however, it seems like one needs to be prosperous already to buy gold. But, not any more!
On the indiagold app, available on Google Playstore, it is now possible to buy beautiful BIS Hallmark 22 karat and 24 karat gold chains, gold necklaces and gold coins at attractive 3, 6 and 9 month Equal Monthly Installments (EMIs).What’s even better is that this is possible at a 0% interest and it can be safely delivered to your home directly!
