We at Tamil vivakam, think one of the biggest evolutionary leaps is the fact that there are online portals. I’m not saying this because this is self publish post, but because we think it’s the closest we have got so far to dating websites. I would like to see these portals evolve to accommodate online dating, rather than offer only matrimonial hook-ups.
It’s hard to say how they will evolve. But we have a feeling some of the criteria we spoke about, like religion, caste and so on, may break down. One of my interviewees for the book had an inter-caste arranged marriage. She is an Army kid, and her husband is a Major in the Army, and so they have a lot more in common than their birth-charts suggest.
