Other ways



Introduction -

The practice of giving dowry is common in our country. Dowry is the money or gifts given to a daughter by her parents at the time of her marriage.Unfortunately, this has become a social problem.


The family of the boy demands large sums of money from the girl’s parents.For this reason the birth of a daughter is considered a cursed in our society.

Girl is considered a curse in our society.



She is considered as a burden on the family.The boy’s family considers it as their right to make demands and a lot of unpleasantness is caused at the time of marriage sometimes people even refuse to through with the marriage if they feel they are not getting enough money.


Problems -

Marriage has become a bargain.

The girl is very often tortured by the husband and his family for bringing insufficient dowry.


Sometimes they are compelled to commit suicide to escape ill-treatment.

People even resort to murder to do away with a pride who has not brought enough dowries.

Dowry deaths have become a very serious problem in our society.


Act s -

Various legislative safe guards have been introduced over the past fifteen years to combat this problem. But the tragic truth is, that marital and domestic violence including dowry deaths have continued to grow and spread.


The dowry prohibition act was passed in 1961 but it has not been effectively implemented. It was further amended in 1986. Under this law, a person who is convicted can be imprisoned for five years and fined up to fifteen thousand rupees.


Other Ways

Laws alone can not help to control the meance of dowry deaths. Social awareness, especially amongst young men, needs to be developed through public campaigns.



The education and economic independence of women also needs to be encouraged so that their parents do not feel compelled to marry them to dowry seekers.


Conclusion -

Youngs are the right answer to eradicate this social evil. They should start a campaign against this disease. Everyone should put an example in his or her own case.


Life partner is blessing of God. He or she should be accepted in totally. Dowry is merely dust of this totality.
