Take it from me,

SOWRY will soon be a very common word, much common and well know than DOWRY.

sad but true, Sowry is existing since ages but Dowry has overtaken it because of its successful branding, so strong that sowry is forgotten and unidentified inspite of it very existence.

cheers,

jinesh.

While anti-dowry law gives boost to a woman and her family, it in the same time also put a man and his family in a great disadvantage. Misuse of this law by women in urban India and many incidents of extortion of money from the husband done by the wife and her family (this is called sowry) have come to light. The law states jailing of ANY person the wife names in a written complaint. The elderly and children have been jailed by the misuse of this law.

number of sowry cases is already more than the number of dowry cases. everyday about 200 cases of dowry are reported in delhi alone and over 90% of them are cases of sowry.

Scary but true.

Sowry is harassment of husband and his family for monetary gain by daughter in law and her family. This is typically done with use of Anti Dowry law (498a) and DV (Domestic Violence) act.

thanks,
