NELLORE:State-level 13th Vivaha Parichaya Vedika (VPV), organised by Brahmin Free Marriage information Centre (BFMIC) in Nellore on Sunday, witnessed 1,500 aspirants across the state registering their names in the one-day event.

Interestingly, 75 per cent of those registered were unmarried men, who had crossed 40 years of age, while the remaining 25 per cent were females.

“The imbalance in the male-female ratio can be attributed to the fact that girls are educated and they look for grooms possessing equal or higher educational qualification,” V Chandra Mouli, Andhra Pradesh Brahmin Service Federation (APBSF), told Express.

said it is unfortunate to witness such pathetic situation in the traditional community.

In a worst scenario, age-barred grooms are ready to accept brides belonging to any sub-sect in the community.

If this situation persists, there may be a danger where grooms would go for inter-caste marriages, she said.
