There’s a sense of disappointment over everything else that’s happening in India today - it’s 2021 and yet, ‘dowry’ is still a thing.
Perhaps it’s easier to say “wait till she gets married off” about one’s daughter than to admit - we’re still selling our girls - whether it’s jewellery, a car or money - our girls are not for sale! And this is something every parent/daughter/son needs to remember.
STOP. Think. Is this what you’ve brought her up for? Is she really worth just this much? Instead of teaching her to collect jewellery for when she gets married, teach her to stand on her own two feet. Give her confidence in who she is on her own - without a spouse by her side - that her job is just as important as that of whom she marries.
If you’re a parent, this one’s on you. She’s still your daughter even after she’s married.
If you’re a daughter, are you really worth the price tag put on you? Don’t you have more of yourself to give the universe?
If you’re a boy - every rupee she brings, is still on you. Which planet were you born on that says it’s okay to buy a bride with her gold and car?
THINK. It’s 2021. #DowryDeath #Dowry #IndianBrides #indianwedding #mybigfatindianwedding
