PATEL COMMUNITY LOP-SIDED SEX RATIO – THEY LOOK FOR BRIDES FAR FROM HOME 

The skewed sex-ratio or gender gap in the Gujarati Patel community, has also forced the Patidars to go searching for brides in other states such as Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, or even further away in Oriya. To highlight how dire is the situation, in the first-ever matchmaking ceremony of the kind arranged in October, nearly 50 prospective brides could chose from a pool of over 5,000 Patel boys.
