The golden leaf

My Maharashtrian maid very sweetly came and gave me a small heart-shaped leaf today and we wished each other 'Happy Dasshera'. After pulling her leg on the leaf not being made of real gold, I asked her what to do with it, she said its supposed to be lucky so keep it in your wallet. I hope to get loads of money now! Certain things are so symbolic. I absolutely love these tiny gestures.
