The best part is that one’s date, time, and location of birth are as important in that virtual world as in the real one. Those numbers play an important role in determining how harmonious a match would be astrologically.

Parents, with a long and healthy arranged marriage, hope the same for their daughters. They somehow fear that the matters have been made worse by those expectations of too much among the younger generations. For the modern Indian woman, it is becoming unthinkable to gulp down a marriage without love. They are often reprimanded by their parents for being very choosy.

But most Indian women do give in to their parents and their wishes and go on with the introductions. Perhaps it is just looked upon as meeting to be gossiped later with her friends. Nevertheless, for Indians, marriage remains an important focus of their life. They just cannot escape without thinking about marriage and those dizzying array of matrimonial websites point to the growing demand. To an Indian, marriage remains a matter of karmic destiny and for the modern Indian woman; well, she is on her own adventure, refusing to get bogged down by the astrological numbers.
