I was just reading a survey, which stated that dowry remains the fundamental problem in India and it is absolutely true. But I think more than boy's parents and relatives, it's the girl's family that encourages dowry.
Even if not asked for anything specific, girl's parents would want to load her with gifts and cash in the name of happiness and in a way they are only promoting the culture of dowry. So how can we expect that this social problem would ever come to an end. What's your opinion on this?
