This refers to the system of dowry that is considered as a prerequisite for marriage, which is sometimes not affordable for the middle/lower classes and due to that many girls from these classes remain unmarried. It has now become a national curse, which should not be supported by our society.
I have lately been observing the situation relating to the custom of dowry. There is a family in our neighborhood whose son was getting married and a day before the mehndi function the dowry arrived at their home, which was not according to their expectations. As their demands were high their new in-laws-to-be could not fulfill them; thus the nuptials were called off just four days before the marriage. This was definitely a very embarrassing situation for the girl and her family.
In this day and age, due to skyrocketing prices people cannot afford a meal, let alone the burden of providing dowry. As Humans we should not follow these customs and traditions of our society that are causing hardship to others.
I would like to take this opportunity to request the people around the world that they must try to get out of this age-old tradition of excessive dowry and eliminate it forever. Dowry is indeed a sign of illiteracy and a society cannot flourish when it is being run by greed.
