Indian Brides & Grooms and the Internet
by Saptarshi Das Bookmark and Share
 

India is a diverse, multi-cultural country with people of various religions, communities and sects living together in harmony and peace. Each community has its own set of religious rituals, traditions and multitudes of customs inherited from ancestors. Arranged marriage is one such common custom handed down over generations. Arranged marriage has played an important role in Indian marriages. This concept is even today accepted by millions of Indians in India and abroad. Marriages, initiated by elders, were arranged with the help of an 'aunt' or the 'priest'. Over a period of time this has slowly transitioned from the marriage brokers to the newspapers and now onto the Internet.

Internet has revolutionized the way people communicate. Today, there are several matrimonial sites some aimed to a particular community/religion and some to the general public. These sites literally make the world seem a smaller place. The concept of online matrimonial has become increasingly popular because it gives people up-front, at the click of a mouse, access to thousands of eligible singles, which neither newspapers nor marriage bureaus can ever offer. It has tremendously expanded the reach of every marriageable individual by exposing him/her to the millions of eligible Indians who visit these sites. Increasingly, many individuals and families spend their valuable time online searching for the perfect partner for themselves or their loved ones. It is interesting to see that these sites are visited by conservative parents, relatives; who believe in the sanctity of arranged marriages and also by those for whom falling in love is the way to go.

BridesandGroomsIndia.com is one of the newly emerged, traditional matrimonial site, which understands the focus of the new age matrimonial net surfers and offers them several attractive services. It represents all major Indian languages and is a beautiful platform for people of diverse background to meet and unite. In the immediate future, the site plans to offer its members personalized astrological services. These services include individual predictions, horoscope generation, horoscope matching and much more. The site welcomes its user�s views and suggestions on the type of services they would like to be provided with.

It is interesting to see how the Indian marriage scene has changed over the years. Though Indians have become tech savvy and jumped on the Internet bandwagon to find the Mr./Mrs. Right, but still the Indian customs, the traditions, the core values remain the same. According to the management, BridesandGroomsIndia.com offers free initial registration and aims to unite millions of hearts and souls in the future. Hope there will be many online websites like this available for the public.
