I believe strongly in shradh and follow its rituals religiously. I wanted to repair an old gold chain that was broken but have been sitting on it for over a month. I have been keeping it on hold since. Although it’s broken, I’ve been wearing this locket for the past 20 years without a break. The gold chain’s very lucky for me and espe-cially the locket is very close to my heart. With shradh over, I got my chain repaired even bought a pair of earrings for my mother.
Because of this shradh, I was not able to sell my property, as I be-lieve it brings misfortune in one’s life. With it over now, I have spo-ken with my estate agent and within this week, will be selling my suburb property and buying a larger home for my family in South Mumbai. I am looking forward to staying in my new house. I am also very happy with my investment plans.

I think it’s superstitious to believe in shradh, but since my parents follow the custom religiously and believe so much in it that our kitchen renovation work was stalled because of shradh. Now since it’s over, the renovation work will resume and hopefully, we’ll have that long-awaited chimney in our kitchen installed as soon as possi-ble.
I strongly believe in shradh and now as we’re through with it, we’ll be refurbishing our entire home. This year around, I am planning to buy a refrigerator, washing machine, television set and microwave oven too. I am thrilled and looking forward to having my new home renovated fully before Diwali.
My family members follow shradh religiously. In our community, we can’t even buy footwear during shradh. It is believed wearing shoes (brought during shradh) brings bad luck to one’s life. With shradh over now, we will be renovating our entire house. I am happy and at the same time thrilled about my bedroom as it is being renovated, as per my wishes.
