The significance of the Hindu marriage biodata format

Hindu marriage biodata formatThe Hindu marriage biodata format is an important document that helps Hindus transition from Brahmacharya (being a bachelor) to a Grihastha (householder). This transition is part of age-based lifestyle changes that followers of Hinduism are expected to go through.

Hindu marriages are not just a sacred union of two people but a coming together of two families. The Hindu marriage biodata format is hence seen as a reflection of the status of the family and the background of the boy or the girl. Families take immense pride in showcasing their lifestyle and the expectations they have for their boy or girl.

What makes the Hindu marriage biodata format unique?

There are several unique features of a Hindu marriage biodata format.

1. Most Hindu marriage biodata formats have a symbol or icon that denotes the religious as well as the auspiciousness of the journey they have undertaken to find a bride or a bridegroom. Hence there is usually a symbol of Ganesha, Swastika or in some cases, the name of the primary deity. For example, if the family is a devotee of Vaishno Devi, they may begin the marriage biodata with “Jai Mata Di” which is a popular chant among the devotees.

2. Unlike Christianity, where an association with the Chruch plays a central role in finding suitable alliances (matches), Hindus find matches within the boundaries of their caste or sub-caste. For example, a Brahmin Iyer family in South India will give first preference to girls/boys from other Brahmin Iyer families. Sometimes, when suitable matches from within the sub-caste are hard to come by because of late marriage or in the case of high net-worth individuals or highly qualified individuals, families may show flexibility with the sub-caste.

3. Horoscope matching or astrological match is yet another unique feature in Hindu marriage biodata formats. In some cases, all the data from the boy or the girl’s horoscope chart (that’s prepared by the family’s astrologer) is included as a separate document along with the marriage biodata. The marriage biodata format may still contain some basic data from the horoscope for immediate qualification (such as the date and time of birth, gothra, and birth star).

4. In several communities (such as the Maheshwaris or Rajputs) a detailed description of the family background is also included in the biodata for marriage. The names and the backgrounds of the paternal as well as maternal grandparents, aunts, uncles along with their profession and location is included. Names and professions of the siblings along with the names and professions of their spouses and number of children in their families are all called out in some cases.

Our handcrafted Hindu marriage biodata templates

The process of creating the Hindu marriage biodata template started with summarising the understanding of the Hindu religion visually. This involved creating a mood board that captured the colours, iconography, textures, art, the architecture of the Hindu religion.

Mood board for Hindu biodata format

We wanted to use rich colours such as orange and magenta for creating a festive mood. The orange colour also depicts marigold flower which is always present in the Hindu weddings. Different shades of pink, red and magenta were used to create harmony and balance.

Here is the Hindu biodata format we created.

The white area showing the arch is inspired by Rajput architecture. The Hindu temple design follows a geometrical design called Vastu-Purusha-Mandala, hence the mandala around the profile picture. Symmetry is shown through the arches which also depict the grand entrances to ancient temples. Critical information like birth time, moon sign, sun sign are visually depicted in form of Janampatri (Indian horoscope).

We also created a 2-page biodata for marriage format as well that includes additional mandala patterns and a page number indicator in the footer. This format provides generous space for including details about your family members.
