We live in our society. It is made up of different castes and sub-castes. There are different traditions and cultures. Some of the traditions are good, but not all of thyem. Dowry system is one of the social evils which is in practice till now. Dowry is the property or money given to the bride to take her husband's house when she gets married. This evil system is especially praticed in the terai of our country.
      Nowadays dowry is a major factor when someone gets married. The bridegroom's family proposes the amount of dowry. And if the bride's family agrees it, the marrige program is organized . But the dowry should be given on the day of marrige ceremory. The bridegroom can deny the marrige ceremony if he does not get the decided dowry. It is the worst aspect of this system.
          Bride's parents want their daughter to have a properous life. They want to support her economy.They ceranitly love their daughter. But in dowry system, the money and other things are not given to her for her happines; rather they are given to make the bridegroom agree to get married to her. Nowadays, the bridegrooms demand more property from the bride's family.
        I think that this system should be bannded by law. All the educated girls and boys should discourage and aviod this system when they get married. The parents of the girls should educate their daughters property. If the girls are educated, they can find good husbands themselves. At any cost, this system should be wiped out for a civilized society.
