Akshaya Tritiya is a Hindu festival celebrated throughout India. There are many legends associated with the celebration of Akshaya Tritiya, but the most known legend says that it is the celebration of Kuchela and Lord Krishna’s meet. Kuchela, also known as Sudama, was a poor brahmin who was also a childhood friend of lord Krishna. One day he decided to visit Lord Krishna seeking some financial help. Along with him, he carried a bag of poha (flatten rice) for Krishna as it was his childhood favourite dish. But when he reached the Palace, looking at Krishna’s wealth and prosperity, he felt embarrassed to offer the poha. But Lord Krishna noticed that his childhood friend has brought something for him and enjoyed the delicacy without any hesitation. He also treated his friend Kuchela like a king. Owing to Krishna’s humble behaviour, Kuchela forgot about requesting financial assistance and returned home empty handed. But when he reached home, he saw his hut was replaced by a palace and his wife and kids were seen in new- expensive clothing. He then knew that Lord Krishna had showered this mercy. Akshaya Tritiya is celebrated with much enthusiasm throughout the country.

On this auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, devotees perform puja and pay visits to temples of lord Vishnu and Lakshmi. Visits are also payed to Lord Krishna’s temples. Annadhan or food donation is carried out by many devotes by donating food to the poor and less fortunate. Gold Jewellery Stores throughout the country is flooded with people as Akshaya Tritiya is considered the most auspicious day for buying gold. It is believed that buying gold on this day will bring growth and prosperity to one’s life.
