DOWRY:- This is very shameful tradition of india. Initally the parents of the bride used to give some clothes,eatable and some money to their daughter as she wouldn't get any need in her intial days in IN-LAWS. But it has taken very big role in now a days in INDIA especially in AGGARWAL'S family.
Now the guy who is to be married is sold in the market. It seems that the people put their bets on the guys and who will bet more cam marry their daughter to him.
The dangerous outcome of this tradition is sex-ratio. The girls are killed prior to birth and sex-ratio is decreased very much in india. Second the girls are killed after marriage due to many reasons of dowry.
