We Indians are renowned for having many superstitions. Among many here is one - gold is thought to be an auspicious metal, that invites blessings. And so, on occasions like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries gold ornaments are given as presents. Similarly, silver is thought to be a metal inviting money and wealth. How far these beliefs are true I have no idea. This evening two of us went to a jewellery shop to buy a silver chain for the child of a visiting friend from Germany. In the shop I was tempted to buy myself a silver chain. No, I don't believe this will bring me wealth. I bought it to attach it to a small crucifix and wear it around my neck. Tell us if you know of true incidents when gold and silver have brought blessings.
