  1. Very useful post! Thanks for the effort. As I am told my mother, I have different opinion on some points given here. They are:
    1. Saturday is the best day for planting
    2. Friday is auspicious for worshiping Goddess Lakshmi. Friday is highly auspicious day that whatever (study, chanting, etc) done on Friday will give us more opportunities of doing those works in the future. So, Spending money, starting of medical treatments is a strict No-no on Friday.

    Shared these points with you just to know more about these differences… Hope we would get more light on these 🙂
