Bhandaris are a subcategory of Hindus. They are traditionally known as the people who are going in sea and getting goods back home. For example, they travel in ships to lands where dress materials, valuables are available. They carry lots of money and buy them in cheap rates. Then they bring it back home in the same ship and they sell it at a good profit. There are many risks involved in these journeys in those days, but Bhandaris didn't worry about that and they were brave enough to take that risk for their business. They also served their community by selling useful things. They spread the locally produced things to distant countries thereby making India's name popular. Today, Bhandar live mainly in the Indian state of Goa and many other states. There are few states where they are living in small numbers. Some of them are still engaging in sea journey and building their businesses while others have moved to studying, working in corporations, starting their own businesses. In all these, they show exceptional quality, hard work and respect. Bhandari matrimony starts when parents decide that their son or daughter has reached the marriageable age and they prepare a profile with their details. This is then shared with other people in the community and spreads to everyone. When another family looking for a match for their son or daughter sees this and approaches the family, they discuss together and arrive at the best match as well as the marriage preparations which are done in a grand scale. This process can also be done by using special websites where profiles can be uploaded, searched and filtered for best match between them.
