With numerous incidences happening all around the country the greed in people for dowry doesn’t seem like getting over. The country has witnessed several deaths, tortures, and harassments that women undergo for committing the crime of not bringing the dowry along with them at the time of marriage. A similar incidence happened in a village of Gazipur, Uttar Pradesh in which a woman’s head was shaved publicly and she was expelled from the family by her in-laws because her only fault was that she did not bring enough dowry in her marriage which took place 11 years back in 2005.

When none of the tortures and harassments worked out and could not bring in the dowry, the in-laws figured out a new way of harassing and insulting her. The case has been reported to the police and the required actions are being taken. The incidence has once again proved that the growth and development we often talk about is still missing to a bigger extent. Yes, we do agree that there are people and families who have changed and are trying to impact others as well. But this also makes us think where are we heading to as a society? The logical Indian would like to leave all its readers with few questions for our introspection as a society.


What is a marriage?
Is it a bonding between two people and their families for a better future or a money crunching institution or a trade where every groom has a price tag and the family that has the capability to pay the price in the form of dowry can buy the groom? Why do we marry at all? –Is it because we feel the need of having somebody by our side throughout our life through thick and thin and ups and downs. Or is it because we don’t have sufficient money for ourselves and no capabilities to earn it too and hence we marry a girl/boy so that someone else can pay for our desires/demands. We hope your answers will lead all of us to a new society where people will value relations more than money.

The Logical Indian requests authorities to take strong action against her husband and in-laws. There can’t be any justification of it.
