It is an artificial market hype created by gold dealers!
And the mediocre masses falls flat! The mediocre masses are a flock of sheep, if one sheep jumps over the hedge, 99 others follow suit, not knowing what is happening! And now household appliances like fridge, washing machine etc are also advertised for Akshaya tritia!
