Dowry System : Social Evil In IndiaIn our Indian society, there are numerous problems like superstitions, illiteracy, caste system, and dowry system etc. It is surprising that even in these days of the 21st century, we are still drowned in the dark depth of these evils.
One of the worst evils of Indian society is dowry system. The word "Dowry" means the property and the money that bride brings to her husband's home or property or cash that is demanded from her by her husband's family. Not only uneducated and villagers but educated ones also demand dowry from their daughter-in-law. It is material of joy to husband and his family who get cash, property, furniture, car etc. Few family demands at the time of engagement or before marriage by saying that our son faces difficulty in going to his office if you give us the car he would go to office easily and forcefully bride's parents had to fulfil demands. On the other hand, there are families who show their colours after marriage. They force their daughter-in-law to get the thing they want from her parents and if she is not able to fulfil they kill her or do some other crime and sometimes girl commit suicide.
Proper education of the girls should be provided to them so that they can know many laws have been formulated against dowry system and girls instead of commit suicide should file the police complaint against her husband. What you all think about this?
