Khandayats are a subcategory of Hindus. These people are mostly living in the Indian state of Orissa. They may be living in small numbers in other states, but they are mostly in and around Orissa. They speak Oriya and they live as a community. They are traditionally identified as warrior people. They used to join armies of kings and were proud to protect their lands. Some Khandayats even ruled their own lands and people liked them as just kings. Later Khandayats also engaged in other activities such as agriculture. They mostly lived in villages near coastal places and hence their culture such as food habits, behavior is dependent on that. Today, Khandayats are still engaged with their warrior states as they feel that is their primary duty to this society. Few young people have gone to schools, colleges and they have learnt the tricks and trades to work for someone, earning money and respect. Few people even started their own businesses. In all these, they show the fighting attitude. They work with others and create value for everyone involved. They are proud members of the society where they get amazing respect and they make sure they do good things to keep this respect forever. Khandayat matrimony process starts when parents decide that their son / daughter is ready to get married, preparing a profile about them. It is distributed to people in the community and others in general. It may be done in traditional channels or through a website. This profile is watched by the parents of families who are looking for a suitable match for their son or daughter. They contact this family and marriage discussions happen.
