Manglik Syndrome: Unconvincing Basis of Manglik Tag for Matrimonial Purpose

There are many superstitious beliefs prevailing among Hindus across the world and ‘Manglik Syndrome’ is one of them. I earlier believed that Manglik Syndrome was only rampant among the Hindus living in India. Nevertheless, I recently received a message from a reader from United Kingdom, commenting on my article on the same subject published on this site ‘Discover Life’. The anonymous visitor has expressed anguish over the Manglik Syndrome that is also prevalent among Hindus migrated to other lands like US, UK and Europe. 

Manglik tag is attached to those Hindu boys and girls who are born on a specific date, time and place when planet mars (मंगल) sets in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house / zodiac sign / rashi (राशि) on their birth chart / janma kundli (जन्म कुंडली). Indian astrology claims that the Manglik people are born on inauspicious time and place and are dangerous for themselves and for those to whom they are married to. 

I have suspicions on this theory because the question of being Manglik comes only at the time of marriage of the Manglik person. The so-called Manglik people do not pose dangers to the people in their society, family and relations as long as they remain single. They are only believed to become dangerous once they are married to someone and after becoming spouses. This theory does not appear to be convincing. 

What are the houses / rashies (राशि) where the planets use to set-in?
The 12 Houses (राशि) in Indian astrology are the Locations of planets in the Sky / Zodiac. A house is an imaginary slot where the planets are positioned at different times during their journey in the sky (on their orbits across the space....?).  

For calculating the houses (राशि), with respect to a particular point on the earth surface at a particular date and time, the 360 degree sky / Zodiac is equally divided into 12 houses of 30 degrees each across the earth surface (flat and horizontal). 

In the Hindu system of astrology, each house from the 1st house to 12th house is represented by a specific zodiac sign called Raashi (राशि). These 12 zodiac signs, called 12 Raashis (राशि) are considered for making birth charts / janma kundalis (जन्म कुंडली). These houses / raashis (राशि) have seven celestial bodies as their ruling planets (including Sun and Moon). All these 7 celestial bodies viz Mars, Venus, Mercury, Moon, Sun, Jupiter and Saturn (including Sun and Moon) are called planets in Hindu astrology. 

The 12 houses are calculated / drawn relatively for a particular person born at a particular time and place on earth. Accordingly, for that particular person the relative position of the above 7 planets in each of the 12 houses / rashies (राशि) are also calculated. That is the reason why Date of birth, time of birth, time-zone and place of birth (latitude and longitude of the place of birth) are considered for generating birth charts / janma kundalis (जन्म कुंडली).

The Manglik character of a person is identified from the presence of Mars (मंगल) in one or more of the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th houses / zodiac signs / rashies (राशि). The severity of the Manglik syndrome मंगल दोष is calculated arbitrarily considering the character and nature of that particular house, the planet present at that moment and of course on the number of houses where planet Mars is present simultaneously. 

Brief description of various houses / zodiac signs / rashies (राशि) is furnished as follows:
