    11. While registering I came across a question that asked me whether I am a Manglik. What is the meaning of Manglik?
    Manglik is a criteria determined by the position of the stars at the time of your birth. It is generally calculated using the date of birth, time of birth and the Janam Patri (Horoscope). Manglik generally implies that there are some negative forces of matrimony that influence your life. In the case of Hindu weddings, it is preferred if a Manglik boy enters into a matrimonial alliance with a Manglik girl and vice versa, the theory being that 2 negatives make a positive. The Manglik option is important to only those people who are particular about horoscopes.

    If you 're not sure about whether you're a Manglik then you may select the 'Don't Know' option as an answer.

    13. While registering I came across the 'Gotra / Gothram' option. What is 'Gotra / Gothram'?
    A Gotra is a classification and identification of castes in India. It indicates lineage systems, either patrilineal or matrilineal, in the Hindu community. Gotra is used as surname in many castes. Each of the gotras is normally named after a great ancient Rishi, and belonging to a particular gotra generally implies patrilineal descension from the rishi, whom the gotra is named after. In South India, Tulu and Malayalee communities have their own lineage system that is matrilineal. The Tulu lineage system is called bari or bali and Malayalee lineage system is called illam.
