By Srinivas Krishnaswamy: With changing lifestyle, increasing urbanization, greater exposure to western culture and media, our opinions about love and marriages are changing rapidly.
When it comes to arranged marriages, Indians seem to have a love-hate relationship!
The management at Bharat knew that the product for online matchmaking cannot be “one size fits all”.
Arranged marriages had multiple restrictions and one of the most basic restrictions would be to find a partner in one’s own community.
If there’s truth to caricature, then call my joining the online matrimony network a modern-day leap onto a bandwagon of millennia-old social custom.“Shaadi” is the Hindi word for wedding; is, intuitively, a wedding arranged via the Internet.
It’s one of more than 100 Indian websites that comprise the country’s thriving online matrimonial market, where an individual can browse for his or her ideal spouse among a catalog of potential candidates organized by the personal information that apparently matters most: religion, caste, income, fairness of skin, family background, and so on. Unlike online dating services, which at least superficially foster some sort of romantic connection, and which are effectively nonexistent in India, matrimonial websites are predicated on the idea that the first meeting between two paired users will be to chat about their wedding.
Call it anthropological curiosity; call it a metric of my own narcissism.
Call it acclimating to the Indian single life after coming of age in the West, where India is often seen as a country of arranged marriages and impenetrable glass ceilings.
The matchmaking has been a part of the Indian marriage scene since forever.
