Sri V.G. Gopalakrishnan had suggested to the parents to avoid too much scrutiny of the horoscopes and urged them not to waste time on this process. It is enough to verify the very very important aspects that are required in matching the couple to arrive at a quicker decision, he added. Our Vice President Prof. N. Vasu, explained the procedures that are adopted by KUSO to introduce the nowrins/nowrans with their respective parents on the stage. He had also guided them as to how to fill up the applications forms of their wards as well as the procedure to get the required number of horoscopes at the end of the session.
