Such questions are meant to test your writing skills and should be attempted on your own. However, these points might help you elaborate:
- Even after so many decades of getting independence, India has not been able to free itslef of the shackles of dowry deaths and honour killings.
- Dowry practice is an evil that ends the lives of many young women.
- They are tortured, physically and mentally, into bringing money and gifts from their parents' home to their husband's home.
- The parents and siblings of the groom often participate in harassing the young, new bride to get more and more dowry.
- It is shameful that families auction off their sons: twenty lakhs for an engineer, fifty lakhs for a doctor!!
- Even today, girls and boys are killed in the name of honour: marrying outside the caste is considered a crime!
- It is high time that we become broad minded and tolerant and move on ahead after shunning such shameful and regressive practices.
