    For Kashmiri Pandits, South India is a bride idea

    Sad state of affairs. I hope the southies dont mind.

    Two of my cousins brothers and one sister married into/with sikh families . I guess it happens everywhere .

    well those kattar KAshmiri Brahmin's prefer "gotra matched marriages". or something. and will go to any length to get a suitable match.

    Kashmirs imo consider Sikhs and Brahmin's equally eligible.

    Brahmin boys in South are finding it difficult, so it is mutually beneficial it seems.

    kashmiri pundits are rigid when it comes to marriage. one kashmiri pundit girl wasn't allowed to marry my friend because he was not bhramin.

    Kashmirs Pundits who have stuck with there religions had to do so under sever opposition by the islamists.
    so one can get where this is coming from.. India hasn't done much in terms of rehabilitation we all had to start from the ground up..

    Most of the grand elder were either teachers or Military men.

    Hindus in South and Brahmins in particular have retained their religious moorings better than Northerners so consider it a getting back to the roots for the Kashmiris. Udupi Brahmins used to be the archakas at Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu, Nepal and in demand in other temples for their Sanskrit and religious knowledge.

    Sad. Fundamentalists of Kashmir have succeeded. KP identity will be obliterated.

    1.2 Billion people in India and these KP's are so selective in marrying only Brahmins and that too from particular communities? If they want to preserve genetic pool, then look for Brahmins from North India, there are Punjabi, Rajasthani, UP Brahmins in plenty.

    Welcome the the secular Republic of India.Where secularism means to suppress all things majority and any thing minority even if it is a hate ideology is promoted.
    If things go this way then india will be soon called the 'Secular Caliphate Of India'
