The destiny and character of any person cannot be the same for persons born on the same date.The gun milaan of 24 points is based on the nakshatra and 12 points matching is based on the Moon rashi. This proves the mistake we do when we take important decisions for marriage based on gun milaan. Parents leave very good proposals due to the same.
