Paragraph : Dowry System

Dowry System

↬ The Curse of Dowry

Dowry system is a curse in our social life. This system is very harmful to society. Many innocent women fall victim to dowry system and their lives become miserable. This dowry system has been prevalent for many years among the Hindus. The Hindu women cannot inherit their paternal property. That’s why, cash money, various ornaments, goods, dresses, etc. are given in their marriage ceremony. This evil tradition is established in Muslim society day by day. Many men marry women for their property and if they are unable to get these, they torture women. Many times, as a consequent of this, the girls take the way of suicide or they are killed by their husbands or others. There are some women who go back to their father’s home forever. There is no doubt about the necessity of removing the dowry system. To abolish this system govt. has enacted strict laws. Yet dowry system is continuing and the women are suffering. We have to try to put an end to this system. We should protect women from the curse of dowry and everybody, both male, and female, of the society, should be conscious in this matter.

Same paragraph collected from another book

Dowry is the money or property by a bride has to offer to her husband as a condition of marriage. It’s a great evil working at the root of our society. It’s a curse for poorer parents. The main reason of this practice is the lower mentality of the guardian of the bridegroom. They wish to earn a lot. They think it is their right to get money from the bride as they have spent a lot on the bridegroom in educating and bringing them up. This dowry system affects our society. The poor parents cannot marry their daughters off due to lack of dowry. The dowry system has degraded the mentality of the people. It breeds greed for money and social unrest. Personally, I do not support this practice. I believe females are not objects to the bought and sold like commodities. To eliminate this social voice, anti-dowry campaign should be started and people should be made aware of its bad effects. Anti-dowry law can also be formulated by the government to discourage this practice.
