It is a way inwhich the parents give their property to their daughter. Itis the money of the woman. It is a right.J: I think dowry should not be there. We are giving oursister. It is not a sale. There is no need that the parentsshould give something. It is the responsibility of thehusband to take care of the girl. There is no need of dowry. There are many wrong practices due to thissystem.P: we read that girls are burned due to demands of dowry.Dowry is rooted in Indian orthodox ideas. The solution of dowry system is education. People must understand andget education. We should express our ideas and be self reliant. We should resist it.

N: every thing has two aspects. In dowry the parents givebasic utensils and other necessary items. These things helpthe girls. It is not that husband has to take care of the girls.We can also say that parents give some of their propertyto the sons also. Thus there is nothing wrong in givingdowry.P: we see that there are many mal-practices due to dowrysystem.J: the problem is the mentality of the persons.H: dowry is a social evil. It is a wrong pracitce. If a girl isfrom a poor family, their parents will be in trouble. Theparents would not be able to give dowry and there will beproblems.N: we are taking dowry as giving money. We should see itin positive perspective. It is not like that we have to givedowry. It is not like you have to give dowry.J: giving gifts is different – giving a cash or similar things isdowry.H: boys want to take dowry, but girls don’t like the dowrysystem.
