Abstract or Introduction
The statement that says, ‘In a fairytale wedding, the prince charming wafts his bejeweled and decked up bride away to an idyllic town’ does not hold good for every marriageable damsel and her natal family in India, as the family may not be qualified to make her wedding a resplendent one.
In India, an ordinary family has the means to marry the daughters off on a decent budget. Not everybody can afford extravagant dowry on the daughter’s wedding. In recent years, the topic of dowry has intrinsically been connected to the discourse on marriage and family.
