A QUESTION OF DOWRY

Dowry system was


originated in upper
caste families as a
wedding gift.
QUESTION OF DOWRY

Thiruchelvams mother asks twenty-


thousand dollars as a dowry which really
puts Mr Ramachandran in surprise.
Mr Ramachandran tells his wife that
they could not able to fulfil the dowry
request and also the necklace.
Thiruchelvaam rejects the marriage
because the Sivasothies family fails to
settle the dowry as promised before.
QUESTION OF DOWRY
Dowry makes things worst for poor families
like Mr Ramachadran family to arrange a
marriage for their daughter.
Some unfortunate parents have desire to
provide better life for their daughters, so
they are willing to pay a very high dowry.
This is looked as an advantage for
Thiruchelvams family to earn more in the
form of dowry although they do not need
it.
Conclusion
Few similarities can be identified from both
stories in the aspect of cultural criticism.
Some parts of our culture need to be fixed.
We should provide better lifestyle rather for
younger generation rather than following
old traditions blindly.
We should voice out and act bravely if the
some norms of culture give us a bad
treatment, for example dowry system.
