      Dear sister susan

      Thanks for the new thread

      Nisha Sharma had her 15 seconds of fame!
      In India she can extend that to 15 years or even more.
      As long as there are are arranged marriages dowry has to be
      part of it.

      In Muslim community they give money to the girl's family.

      For Hindus and Christians who have arranged marriages, the dowry
      system works like this:

      For no dowry, one can find a bum for their daughter - he may even
      live in the bride's house.

      For one lakh rupees you can probably find a daily laborer
      For 10 lakh rupees you can find a white collar employee.
      For 25 lakh rupees you can find a professional.
      For 1 crore rupees you can find an IAS officer - or more.
      SO GET OVER WITH IT.

      In Christ
