Akshaya Trithiya, the festival which is being celebrated today, is supposed to be the festival of prosperity, luck and success. But, thanx to the jewllers and media, it had become "the festival of gold". This sudden gold-rush is purely due to promos by the jewllery stores. I remember reading somewhere, that no where in the scriptures is the connection between AT and gold mentioned. What has happened is mere commercialisation of an otherwise little-known festival!

When you buy gold on AT, it leads to increase in wealth and prosperity - for the jewellers, of course!

I got tagged by max-enthu gal Mythreyee (aka Vasu). She is also celebrating her b'day today. Before i get on to my tag, here's wishing her a very happy birthday!!!

And, here's the tag: Middle-age Mutant Kizhinja Kattil (enna title...Epdi vasu... epdi....epdi!!! )

What kinda power(s) would you choose, if you could undergo bad-ass mutations? You can mention a maximum of 3 powers you'd like. And try to be imaginative... We don't want another Nightcrawler or Mystique! Tag 4 more people.

Powers I would want:

1. Selective invisibility - similar to stealth settings in Yahoo! Messenger. U decide who can see u and who cant. Woud be fun as well as useful, right?
2. Power to convert any food stuff to chocolate/ice cream at will!

Now, I tag Visit, Sheky, Shriedhar and Ponnarasi. Let ur creative juices flow.. lets see some interesting powers.

Me suddenly in mood for quotations... Donno why!!! So, here goes:

"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end."
