  4. Another significance of Akshaya Trithiya or Akshaya Tadige, as heard from my elders that, the Daana or the donations made on this day. More you give more you get, in the form of material things, bliss and PuNya. This stresses on the decentralized way of celebrating the auspicious Parva Day, where everything gets " A "(no) " Ksahya " (reduction). Hope we do not only indulge in buying gold and other tangible things, but also concentrate on the important tatva of one's life, the Daana and be inspired by Mahabharatha's KarNa, to some extent in our lives....Hare Srinivasa....
