are boss ...dowry is not at all necessary(atleast if u do not wish 2 sell urslf to ur wife, or take boarding charges 4 ur wife's stay,or else if u r a pauper)......but it is surely an evil.............coz we r the only country where we have the WMP concept(women marriage penalty)...(in simple words dowry)......wherin a women has 2 pay penalty 4 getting married...

hi ppl/kidd

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 .

problem :

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

samajh gaye bhai log

chalo bye

sumit :lol:

hi all,
I agree with sumit point of view. Dowry is not wrong in its true sense. Dowry is gift that girl side give to their daughter to start a new life with her life partner and giving gift is never an evil. but the system has turned ugly now as meaning of dowry has been changed from gift to a penalty that girl family has to pay.
Dowry is fine as long as girl side gives on their own wish (and what girl right is) and boyside donot demand for it.

well after reading all views i can say that dowry is an evil.
bcz now a days we hear news the a woman was burned alive by her inlaws bcz she was not able to bring the demanded amt. as dowry.

also in haryana and punjab the female ratio is very less when compared to male ratio.Bcz ppl dont want a girl as they have to give dowry at the time of her marriage.
so this dowry which was given as one of my fd said that by their parents wish is now no more by their wish .bcz if it is so then why they have to kill their babygirl.

it is true that parents wants to give their child a present at the time of marriage but now that very present has taken the form of evil
parents have to give more then their reach and also bcz of these practices the demand from boy side increase.

i am not saying that all bride and his family are greedy but we also cannot deny this fact that the so called custom has taken the shape of a necessary evil.

hi preeti

thats what i m saying , as a custom dowry is not an evil its we ppl who turned it into an evil . PPl in haryana and punjab kill their daughter because of their greed and uneducation . even in states like MP , UP rajasthan etc custom of dowry is followed very much but still this problem is not big here coz they give proper education and independence to girls .
And in most cases of dowry killing their mother in law and females of In law families are the culprit . so we shuld follow custom in true sense in which it is made " to provide girls their equal rights"

Thanks and Rgds
sumit

Since majority of the girls in modern India are independent now, atleast in cities, why cant the dowry be reversed? THe guys family should give the girl? Dowry wont become an evil if the whole money is given to the coulple to make their daily life more comfy. Cos in the usual case, the money is taken by the guys parents. And another point is that poor girls find it difficult to get in comfy families. Cos rich families would demand a larger amount. So will a poor girl be able to marry a rich guy? So financial status is discriminated. In most poor marriages, dowry ends up the mail culprit for torture and murder. And its due to the surety needed by the guys parent thet their son is getting into a well-off family that they ask for money. Most lower class parents gobble up the money themselves. And almost no one thinks about the rights of the girl while talking bout money. And some people think that they have spent money to educate their sons and so this expense should be payed by the girls family since she will benefit from him. In the end it all really works out to be a business unless u r a social rights activist.
So dowry is EVIL and not necessary nowadays cos its disavantages outnumber its advantages.
