Remember when we were children, We loved those guests who gave us money when they were about to leave. 

We used to be very happy and excited after getting those coins. The tradition said that they actually give good luck in the form of the money and we were asked to save that good luck into the Gullak, Indian form of Piggy Bank.

Do you know that the Pig is not associated with the piggy bank! Although we see piggy banks as the shape of a pig it has not got its name because of Pig.

The concept had come-out from Europe between the 11th to 15th centuries. It was the time when the concept of the bank did not exist. People kept their savings in jars and pots made of clay called Pygg which were pronounced by people like Pig. 

In his book "Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things" Charles Panati mentioned that people save money in the pots or jar and put them in the kitchen. These jars were called Pygg jars because of Pygg clay and further, they were called Pygg Bank.

Further its pronunciation, it has got the shape of a pig and been called the piggy bank.

Fortunately Gullak has always been artistic in India. Scribed in a cultural and emotional way that reflects the geographical glimpse.

Now We see Piggy Banks made of different materials like plastic and, for its shape we call them the piggy bank.

Indian Piggy Bank the Gullak, comes in different shapes and mostly made of clay. 

Whatever it is, Gullak or Piggy Bank is the first step of humankind toward money management and step by step they learned and developed systematic finance and investment management techniques.
