‘Dowry Death!’ screamed the headlines from all the morning papers.

 

‘Yet another one!’ exclaimed some nonchalantly.

‘Oh God, people still take dowry!’ sniggered a few.

‘Shameless! Just shameless!’ nodded some, disgust writ large on their faces.

A few others looked guilty too, remembering the demands they had made in the guise of ‘tradition’ and the dowry they got and called ‘gifts’.

A few women glared at their in-laws meaningfully while their in-laws slunk away.

 

However, everyone went silent as each of them they read the ‘Dowry Death’ story. A daughter-in-law had set her in-laws on fire, it read. When they tried to burn her for not fulfilling yet another of their never ending demands.

  1. It is such a cruel tradition that still prevails in many parts of our country…..disguised shrewdly as gifting. Very different and thought provoking end though!!! superb!!

  2. Loved the end. It’s a pity to know that dowry still exists in our country despite the law or the society shouting out being modern. But, I wish this becomes a reality. Every dog has his day, So do the people who take dowry.
