Dowry - when will it come to an end ?We have come all the way to the twenty-first century, but still, some of the old rituals are being followed, also because we happily follow it. One of the most famous old and bad rituals is Dowry. It is being followed even today. The boy's family will put forward a cash demand on the girl's family. If the girl is working, the demand will somehow be little less. But if the girl is not in a job, the demand will be higher in lacs of rupees also including some heavy jewellery. The amount of money which even the boy will not be able to collect during his entire lifetime, that much amount is being demanded by the family of the boy. I do not understand how could a boy accept this, can't they make their parents understand about this stupid ritual? Don't they have self-respect that they are asking for money like beggars from the girl's family?
I sincerely hope this evil ritual come to an end. I do not understand what if the girl's family is poor, they will die paying the loans for their daughter's marriage. In spite of being highly educated, people are still following this ritual. Share your views on this.
