Are we Hindus predators...? Believing on these baseless superstitions and marrying trees and animals...???

Question: Is it a crime or sin if you are born a 'Manglik' or 'Mangali'...?
Answer: Definitely no... you are absolutely a normal human being.

The most dreaded situation in the life of Hindu parents arises when their daughter is pronounced as ‘Manglik’. This declaration made by an astrologer or a pundit is nothing less than a death sentence for the parents as well as for the poor daughter herself.  There are many unmarried Hindu women present in our society who have to remain spinsters, throughout their lives, for the simple reason that they are Mangliks. In other cases Manglik women have to marry grooms who are not compatible to them. 

My aim for writing this article is to tell my Hindu brethren to shed off the fear of ‘Manglik dosha’ syndrome because studies and statistics say that nothing will happen if you are one of the so called Mangliks. I do not find any valid reasons for us Hindus to postpone; avoid or cancel marriages of our sons and daughters just because they happen to be pronounced as Manglik by Indian astrologers, pundits or pujaries (priests). 

I tried to understand as to what exactly the Manglic constellation is which can influence the lives of humans on the earth and make their marriages unsuccessful, failures or can even kill either of the bride or the groom. 

Here are the outcome of my study…

What is the effect of Mangal (Mars) on marriages as claimed by Indian astrology?

In spite of being billions of miles away from us, Indian astrology believes that the planet Mangal (Mars) has direct effect on us in India that can spoil our married life and might even kill one of the married brides or grooms? They say that Mars represents anger in North India whereas Mangal is known as ‘Kuja’ that means ‘burning coal’ in south India that depicts its aggressive temperament. I do not understand as to how a celestial body can have feelings, emotions or temperament?

How Mangal (Mars) adversely affect prospective brides and grooms as claimed by Indian astrology:

As per Indian Astrology Mangalik Dosha appears in the birth chart of the bride or the groom that is made based on the time, date, year and the position of the birthplace on earth in terms of Longitudes and latitudes.  

What are Birth charts / horoscopes / Janma Patrikas / Kundalies:

                 The Circular Birthchart

Birth charts (horoscope / Janma Patrika / Kundali) are drawn in square shapes. These charts are divided into 12 cells (houses).  Each of these houses represents positions of planets at 30 degrees apart, vis-à-vis the Sun, making the total of 12 x 30 =360 degrees.  It is apparently believed to be depending on the movement of the planets around the Sun through 360 degrees. 

The South Indian Birth Chart:

Look at the following birth chart that is drawn by South Indian astrologers. This chart has 12 houses, numbered in clockwise direction, in which the positions of planets are recorded vis-à-vis that of the sun.  Look at the geometrical formation of houses that has 4 houses made along each side of the square all at the periphery of the square. 

The North Indian Birth Chart: 

Look at the following birth chart that is followed by North Indian astrologers. This chart has 12 houses, numbered in anticlockwise direction, in which the positions of planets are recorded vis-à-vis that of the sun. Look at the geometrical formation of houses that has 4 houses made in a centrally located square and 8 triangular houses made around the same.

What formation of Birth Chart shows Mangalik Dosha?

According to Hindu astrology, an individual will be called Manglik if planet mars is shown in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of his or her birth chart. The worst type of Manglik dosha is considered when Mangal shows up in the 7th house. 

Planet Mangal / Mars is shown in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house in Mangalik Dosha Horoscope. Mangal needs to be in any one of these 5 houses for branding you as a Manglik or Mangali

Nevertheless, no statistics are available proving that such constellations are really harmful or deadly for the affected individuals. No one or no any authority has ever conducted any survey of Mangalik people marrying against the astrologer’s advices and any ill effect of the same including death after their marriages. 

No other schools of thoughts among astrologers of other religions in India or those across the world believe in this theory. Some schools of thoughts believe that almost more than 65% people in the world can be tagged as ‘Manglik’ if their horoscopes are made on this theory.
