The custom of giving wedding gifts to the bridegroom during marriage ceremony is called dowry. The greed of a section of people is the main reason of dowry. They want to change their fortune by taking gifts or money from the bride’s family. Rich people also encourage this system. They give dowry as gift at the time of daughter’s marriage. The poor and illiterate girls become the victims of this system. This evil system affects the whole society. Now-a-days a father cannot think of the marriage of his daughter without giving dowry to the bridegroom. It is a social vice. It is a humiliation of humanity. As a result of dowry system, many women suicide and many divorce their husbands. This bad custom must be eliminated from the society. For this, we must have to raise public awareness. Female education can play an important role in removing dowry system. We can raise a social movement against this vice. Thus, we can eliminate the practice of dowry.
