The perils of online matrimonial services
This is with reference to the story that appeared in South Asia’s August issue about matrimonial websites. While I agree that matrimonial websites are a good way to find a match for all those looking for a life partner, I have to say that it does not come without its own risks. For starters, it is quite easy to fool someone on the internet. One can never know for sure who the person sitting at the other side of the computer screen is since creating a fake identity is child’s play. These sites may be reliable but at the end of the day, even they cannot guarantee the perfect match. Also, if something goes wrong, then there is no one to hold accountable. So if you enlist the services of a matrimonial website, make sure that you do your background check first.
