Freedom would be - to live in a truly liberated society, country and world Liberated from - prejudices of all kinds Prejudices based on - Color - Oh, you are white. How, oh how, does a whiter complexion guarantee that you are a superior specimen of humanity? Caste - So, you are a Brahm
DOWRY – a social menace which compels the bride’s family to pay a specific amount in cash or goods to the bridegroom’s family (considered as a ‘norm’ of an Indian wedding), is practised in many parts of India even today. BUT what’s even worse is the reckless misuse of the law which was initially formed …
Earlier, dowry was nowhere described as the prerogative of the groom to make demands on the girl’s family. The move which affected the status of the women in the Indian society was the rule imposed by the British which prohibited the women from owning any property at all.
The irony is people still believe that dowry is a part of our culture and customs, oblivious to the actual history of dowry. It's high time we uproot these evils of our society, which are corroding an otherwise rich culture of our country. All it needs is COURAGE - Courage to say NO either to give dowry or take dowry.
