5,000 weddings in Ahmedabad
Bharat Yagnik, TNN | May 6, 2011, 03.06am IST

AHMEDABAD: It will be band baaja baraat for nearly 5,000 couples on Friday on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya or Akhatrij, considered the most auspicious day to tie the nuptials.

Mahendra Pandya, president of the Akhil Gujarat Astrological Society, said the city will wake up to the music of shehnai, as a large number of couples will tie the knot on this day. "An estimated 5,000 marriages are planned in the city as the entire day is considered highly auspicious for marriages and no specific mahurat needs to be taken out for solemnizing the wedding," Pandya told TOI.

Pandya, who is also a priest, said he will be present in over four marriages. "One marriage has been organized at the girl's residence while the rest have been organized at marriage halls and a party plot," he said.

A big number of weddings have been planned all over Gujarat as well. "An estimated 20,000 weddings will take place in the state on Friday," added Pandya. Priest Dhiren Shastri said that his team will be solemnizing eight marriages, all in a day. "Akshay Tritiya is the most auspicious occasion and parents insist on getting a wedding date for their children on this day," said Shastri.

Needless to say, the wedding bazaar too has perked up. Ilyas Mohammad, who runs a fancy garment store has sold 8,000 wedding headgear for the bridegrooms in the run up to the wedding season which will see a blockbuster opening on Friday.

In another 'unrelated' report, medical stores across the state have reported an acute shortage of condoms and morning after pills.

And in yet another "unrelated" report, the police claim they have received a lot of complaints from people... complaining that their neighbours are making a lot of loud and banging noises

Re: 5,000 suhag raats in Gujarat today!!

Plumbers have reported a remarkable increase in business from cleaning bathroom pipes clogged from a balloon shaped object. Modi attributes this to the business friendly environment of Gujrat and has invited Durex to invest in Ghandinagar to make khaadi condoms.

So that will be 10,000 less Indian men jerking off to posters of mofo 12 and Bollywood shaved hijras. 10,000 down ... 499,990,000 more to go. A step in right direction. Our Gujju members ought to be proud ... their state help lead rest of Indian men out of locked toilets and dependence upon blobs of Vaseline.

I knew always ... Gujju men will not take it lying down for too long and eventually take matters in own hand. My compliments to our Gujju members. Mahratha men follow this fine example ... let's hope and pray.

Re: 5,000 suhag raats in Gujarat today!!

Akshaya Tritiya is also supposed to be auspicious for buying gold. We bought gold in 2011/2012 at $1600+ and it never touched that price again. After that stopped believing in Akshay Tritiya concept. It is a marketing overdrive though with all the banks selling gold then.
