My Parent Have Done Enough So Dowry No More

chooriyanThere is a reason why your parents are happy when their sons are getting married and worried when their daughters are given away.

The phrase “given away” is perhaps apt here because it is more of a bargain and an economic settlement instead of a marriage. I speak of the culture where the dowry system, despite being an evil, is prevalent. Sadly, we have been ignoring it for quite too long and this is it, the time to stand against it.

There is a large population of educated youth in the country, large enough to help others to see reason. Dowry has killed women in the past and it continues to do so. It has broken many homes and there is a need to put an end to the nonsense.

Girls need to say NO to the RISHTAS that demand dowry. They should also clearly say NO to those who don’t demand dowry but do expect it. They always expect it.

    Good-quality education and economic opportunities will free women. We’ve had it in the West now for 2 generations and the rest of the women in the world are entitled to it.
