so here is my argument in favour of DOWRY
view from girls side :
our girl is well educated(B Tech/doctor crap )we spend hundreads of bucks on it and she is in a job and things like that .
a brief history of dowry:
in ancient india , when ppl get married they start living on their own which means they need a hut and other house hold utilities to start afresh.so relative gave them gifts in form of utensils ,cloths etc
this is from where this system starts
in recent scenario :
in past (maybe now a days also ) ppl respect females a lot .
legally all kids of parents have equal right on the property for eg.
my parents have 2 siblings myself and my sister .my fathers net worth is say 50lakhs so my sister must get 25 lakhs as her share but if this split happens than this shud not look good and all relations will suffer . so what we do is that we gave her 15 lakhs at the time of marrg and whenever she came to our house we do all things like TIKA and gifts . so we have a cordial relationship all through the life .
parents do not want to give their girls real share and in laws want more than that
" nothing is good or bad , only ur mind make it so"
so problem is not with dowry it is with the ppl
