Many families take dowry from the bride’s side in the name of gifts, in general. Dowry is an old-fashioned word, and not used anymore.
Apart from being old-fashioned, since it’s also a little illegal, it would be impossible to get away with dowry, if you know what I mean?!
However, parents sending gifts to their daughters after she’s married shouldn’t be considered a crime at all. So, when the Allahabad High Court ruled that gift articles demanded at the time of “Kalewa“, a wedding ceremony that takes place after weddings, doesn’t amount to dowry, it got me thinking.
Do you agree with the law? Let us know in the comments below.
