Has corruption got social acceptance nowadays?During discussions about matrimonial matches, it is often mentioned that the boy holds a good position and has good 'oopar ki aamdani' (extra income). The extra income adds a value to the boy and increases its potential to fetch more dowry.
I remember having read somewhere that in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, the dowry amount used to get increased tremendously only on submitting the application form for the coveted civil services examination, irrespective of the outcome i.e. whether the boy clears even the preliminary screening examination or not.
Have you ever noticed such trends in the society i.e. people eulogising individuals having a potential to earn extra?
