Bride shortage forces 40,000 Tamil Nadu Brahmins to try luck in UP, Bihar
CHENNAI: With more than 40,000 young Tamil Brahmin men finding it difficult to find brides within the state, the Tamil Nadu based association for Brahmins has launched a special drive to look for suitable matches from the same community in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
"We have launched a special movement on behalf of our Sangam," said Thamizhnadu Brahmin Association (Thambraas) presi nt N Narayanan in an open letter published in the association's monthly Tamil magazine's November issue.
Quoting rough estimates, Narayanan said more than 40,000 Tamil Brahmin men, in the age group of 30-40, could not get married as they were unable to find brides within the state.
Giving a ballpark figure, he said, "If there are 10 Brahmin boys in the marriageable age group, only six girls are available in Tamil Nadu."
Good news. Better national integration.
This is caste integration. If you marry a bride from anywhere in India, then, it is national integration.
Nothing integration. They want fair skin girls for alliance. Nothing else.

They should look for intercaste marriages to strengthen Hindus..
Who said it is not happening? I am a Tamil Brahmin and I know my community well. A large number of brahmin families have non brahmin daughter in laws and son in laws. There are many reasons for this looking for brahmin grils from UP and Bihar. A Tamil brahmin boy earning 50K to 60K per month finds it difficult to get a Tamil Brahmin Girl. Most of the Tamil Brahmin girls are well educated and earn more than the average sries. The typical expectation of boy earning more than the girl, being more qualified and is an elder at least by a day makes it difficult to get a girl for many boys.
Most people in TN are non-vegetarian.
Obsession of fair skin girls is the real reason
Po itically Homeless
BS. The real reason is many TN brahmins are well educated and have moved out of the state because of harassment by local parties. So the expectation by the girl who has moved abroad is also a guy who is abroad. The girl here also wants to marry so someone abroad.
Yet Tamil Nadu is a progressive state that all other states can learn from.
Never trust a Brahmin I am sure there are some devious reasons behing this.
Ha ha haa. Its not shortage of brides. Its shortage of BRAHMIN brides. ROFL
Maybe, Brahmin brides are choosy.
Maybe Brahmin brides don't want Brahmin grooms
India still living in Maha Bharat times, why not marry shudars dalit girls who are educated and break this caste barrier
Yes, national identity is important. Caste identity is backward and anti-national.
Why? Marriage is a personal preference,
Actually it's not personal preference as shown in the article... its family preference... lol
Brahmins are the ones who created the caste problem
Tamil brahmins like many others aborted female foetuses. Now they are paying the price for that. There is a shortage of women in north india too. The only option now is to go for second hand women or to share wives.
Very correct. Widows can be encouraged to marry.
What nonsense is this? Dear unmarried Tamil Brahmin boys, please marry any girl who will understand and love you and your family. Live happily with her. Who cares for caste in the 21st century?
Why not marry from other caste.
they dont want . they want to keep their cast grow. why others bother?
Because it is discrimination and discrimination is not allowed in civilized societies.
