“If Guna Milan worked, there would be no divorces in Hindu arranged marriages”
Day after day after day I get calls from desperate people (mostly women) who are facing a divorce or are stuck in a bad marriage.
“Who the hell matched your horoscope and asked you to marry this guy?”
“Our Pundi Ji did and he told that this was as good match as there was a match of 25+ Gunas” is often the reply. I slap my forehead and launch into a monologue that makes my blood boil. It often starts with “If Guna Milan worked, there would be no divorces in Hindu arranged marriages”
While i love Indian astrology and owe a lot to it, there is one DEFECT that makes me go hopping mad, GUNA MILAN…!
Most of the “Match Making” in India is done on a totally FLAWED technique called Guna Milan.
Here is my experience: GUNA MILAN SUCKS…!
As an astrologer and a human being, i am totally against arranged marriage. That is unnatural and absurd.
Indian parents won’t let their sons and daughters to even go on a date or even talk to a member of opposite gender, however, they would happily send them to sleep with one talk about “Arranged Marriage”.
Don’t talk to strangers, better sleep with one…! Then we wonder why there is so much marital disharmony in India.
For those who say that our marriages stay longer, here is my reply: we are too chicken to file for a divorce.
The two people somehow tolerate each other and go through life full of regrets (read quora answers about regrets in marriage, Indian arranged marriage horror stories dominate this one).
Here is how it happens:
What “wise” indian parents do is take help of an astrologer who would punch the date of births in a software and tell them “There are 25+ Guna Match…this is good”…WTF…!
People might have read books on Guna milan, i have TRANSLATED them from Hindi to English and trust me, few things in Indian astrology are as badly flawed as Guna Milan.
For example, Guna Milan would tell you that a Cancer moon and Aries moon are a great match as the “Rasi Lords” Mars and Moon are great friends (which is true), hence these two would live in harmony. However, reality is that these two would EAT EACH OTHER ALIVE…!
The aries would rage for minutes hurting the sensitive crab and the cancerian would sob for hours making the ram miserable and both would bitterly ruin each others’ days and lives. Thank you Guna Milan….F**k you…!
Very few astrologers know the art of horoscope to horoscope compatibility. And yes, yours truly is one of them.
Here is my advice: Please go for a love marriage, if you can’t, DON’T rely on Guna Milan. Get horoscope to horoscope compatibility check done.
We charge only 501 for this service as this will bring long term happiness to many. After all, your life is worth it, and it is much cheaper than a divorce.
How i wish other astrologers knew this art, this would have saved millions of lives.
I am trying my best to help as many people as I can.
