A discussion over the topic of whether Kundali matching is necessary or is it just a Vedic
tradition followed from the era of our forefathers is quite an ongoing one. Kundali matching
refers to the art of binding two people in love together through several other rituals and
norms to follow. Bring to people not know to each other for the rest of their lives is a risky
and very delicately crafted process to undergo. Marriages, especially in India are strong
pillars that held together with the diversity and traditions of our country. To ensure the fact
that the long-term partnership of two people turns out to be a positive and successful one
people often turn to horoscope matching.
TESTING OUR RELICS
This tradition of matching kundalis of the two people about to enter into wedlock is a long-
prevailing one, especially as for the Hindu parents the presence of pandits and astrologers
is considered to be extremely important while setting the two love birds up. Even though
we all are striving towards the norms of advancements and new possibilities and with the
advent of these advancements love marriages have found their way into our societies. But
even after opening up to modernity in terms of love marriages, several families still believe
in matching the kundalis of the couple already in a relationship for years. So, basically one
can easily assume that, in a country like India such traditions can never fade away and
that they’re always going to be important factors while determining the future scope of the
Now the questions arise, is kundali matching a boon or a bane? Keeping in mind all the
aspects of modernity infused with age-old traditions it gets difficult to decide on something
so complicated. The fact that every person about to enter into a life long relationship would
love to know about their compatibility with the opposite party is what drives us towards the
concept of kundali matching. Moreover, in a traditionally vast country like India people
have numerous emotions that one needs to take into account and such emotions of our
elderly drive us into following their age-old traditions so as to satisfy our families.
MASSES FOLLOWING MODERNITY
Astrology is a science whose reliability depends on a number of factors including the
accuracy of the predictions made by the astrologers. Now, as for the current generation,
living in the state of practicality and materialism the generation of now questions certainly
beliefs that, if everything is predestined then why does one needs a horoscope or any sorts
of kundali matching? Kundali matching is definitely a boon in terms of getting to know
compatibilities and future love life, but at the same time, it acts as a bane in terms of
negative predictions that might cause insecurities in our minds which may pose certain
threats to a perfectly bonded relationship.
You might be a little confused that how can it be both a boon and a bane, right? Well, the
fact that horoscope matching had a huge hold in our societies in the previous era has now
lost its validity also, as we move on to a more advanced scenario people tend to believe
more on their inner channeling emotions and instincts than on some ‘maybe’ predictions.
Furthermore, there is always a possibility that those predictions might not turn out to be the
way they were through. Horoscope matching in a way fails to prove its validity in terms of
logical perspectives and moreover, there are several cases where even after the approval
of the astrologers the relationship didn’t turn out well.
So regarding such ups and downs and so many ifs and buts, the concept of kundali
matching is no longer a reliable one. There definitely are some people who blindly trust
these predictions, but at the same time, there is a whole lot of people who believe that
kundali matching makes them judgemental and takes away the natural power of trusting
their own instincts. Since people love adventure and they hope their lives to be no less
than a mysterious and adventurous ride so they prefer keeping their destiny a secret and
living their life as per their own terms.
