Dowry - a word which turns your mouth into an acidic well the moment you hear it. Yet it's a reality most of the modern Indian women can't escapr from. I read this artcle today:
and I was aghast.
I was curious to know: How many of you have had to come face to face with this bitter reality ? If you did how did you come to terms with it? Is there anyone of you out there who can give some justification for it's prevalance even today?
And do you think that it's going to stay this way even tomorrow, when we, the torch bearers against this evil, become the in laws and gain the opportunity to market our sons??

The fact that a family is giving their daughter away, isn't that enough??
This is one reason why infanticide rates haven't gone down and why girls are being considered burdens till now.
Dowry isn't a way to get rich, it is supposed to be a nice gift from the brides side, and sometimes it isn't needed. These people think they can get richer quicker if they demand a high dowry. What for?? The dowry system needs to be majorly fixed up because this is absolutely ridiculous. The girl is so special and it is a blessing for the boy that she and her parents approved the him for her marriage.
I for one would not approve of these "gold-diggers"
