"No gold, no wedding," is a saying in India, indicating the importance of gold to Indian culture and tradition.

India's love for gold is almost a religion. Beyond being a symbol of wealth and status, gold is part of worship and culture -- a tradition that goes back thousands of years. From birth to death, for men and women, among rich and poor -- acquiring gold is a goal for the people of India. All of which has made India the world's largest consumer of gold and thus a powerhouse in industry. "If India sneezes, the gold industry will catch a cold," says Ajay Mitra of the World Gold Council.
