I have written this article from an emotional view:


“Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love and they blossom when we love the ones we marry”.
- Tom Mullen

One woman is murdered for dowry every 20 minutes.

“any young man, who makes dowry a condition to marriage, discredits his education and his country and dishonors womanhood”
- Mahatma Gandhi.

Dowry in man’s view:

In school, it’s a bad word and in college, “I won’t ask if they give I won’t say no”. After started doing work,” am going to ask for a car from the “- the lone warrior

Dowry in women’s view:

  • Women have many dreams about their marriage life
  • As a 25-year-old woman, I have so many dreams about my life partner ….so many questions also arise in my mind how to choose? Where to get married?
  • Major question is how my parents will manage?
  • Every woman have these question in their mind …. I am correct?
  • Some women are fighting a single person to get married
  • Some crossed their age due to the dowry system.
  • Some women met with harassment for dowry after their marriage also
  • All women have in their mind to get married to a good man.
  • Dowry system should be leads to harmful practices against women like burning women, dowry-related violence, etc.,
  • Many women were sent to their father’s house due to ask for dowry.
  • See how women feel at that moment? Some carrying their children…
  • Mostly women are educated in our country and they can support their families after marriage.

Author’s view:

  • “say no to dowry” women coming with so many dreams ….
  • Government should make strict laws against the dowry system and dowry violence.
  • Support women and not marry them for dowry
  • Respect women
  • All men should wholeheartedly marry a woman, not for dowry say no to dowry.

Government view:

  • To prevent the dowry system, Indian law enacted on May 1, 1961 – the dowry prohibition act
  • Imprisonment is extended from five years to seven years.
  • Dowry harassment is non-bailable and a criminal offense.
  • All government servants should take an oath against dowry and submit the document ..this law is in Kerala
  • All states should take action to prohibit the dowry system in India
  • India should reach 100% dowry prohibited country.

Support women wholehearted
