Roshni B.. (For justice and dignity)     10 November 2010

The reason behind another such custom?

Till now,enough talks on dowry system,bride having no rights to streedhan,etc.Solutions to these evils were also provided by many honourable members.

Now there's another expensive custom to be followed by parents of married girls,even after spending on her streedhan,marriage celebrations,dowry,etc.

After this married daughter delivers a child,her parents have to send clothes/gifts for all the family members of the Boy.

The child which is born, belongs to the husband as well as the wife. Both of them contributed equally for the birth of the child.Then why is the girl’s family forced to gift to the groom’s family? The child will be carrying the name of the father but the expenses of his delivery are to be borne by the girl’s side and all this is in the name of tradition/ customs and culture...


The mentality behind dowry taking is that the bride's expenses of keeping her will be covered.

So does it mean the child is also taken as a guest?

Yes,you are right.they shud not force to gift.

These kind of traditions needs total eradication as they are baseless, If some one gives by happiness its fine but kind of forcing or taunting as some MIL's do should be totally avoided.
