I never have answers to what my 5-year-old son Harshad asks. He often wonders and asks me, why he cannot run faster than any of his younger friends. He?s upset that he cannot race and play like them. I usually want to escape such question as their answers are heartbreaking. He?s too young to understand that he suffers from a deadly blood ailment called Thalassemia Major. We are devastated as we?re unable to pay for his treatment. His bone marrow transplant costs a whopping Rs. 9 lakh.

ICRA has stated a stable outlook on gold jewellery retail industry in its report released on Friday    
Over the medium to long term, the gold jewellery demand growth is projected at 6-7% supported by the cultural underpinnings, evolving lifestyle, growing disposable income, favourable demographic dividend and the growing penetration of organised sector, the report adds Following a strong 9% volume growth in FY2018, gold jewellery demand has been subdued in the current year. Jewellery sales during the critical festive period, August to November 2018, was relatively sluggish due to various factors like elevated gold prices, and floods in Kerala. Other factors impacting demand in the current year include lesser number of auspicious days, cautious lending by banks to the gems and jewellery sector thus curtailing the store expansion plans of the players.
