A young Kerala girl has done what millions like her want to do but fail to do so due to societal pressure. This young girl cancelled her wedding due to dowry demand. This calls for unprecedented courage. Credit goes to her parents for giving her the space to decide for herself even as the move would bring a ‘bad name’ to the family. What is remarkable is the way this brave girl used the social media to tell her story. She did not fight shy of presenting her side of the story thus bringing to light a malaise that plagues our society. Her Facebook post putting her decision to cancel the wedding in context has rightly gone viral. That is a good beginning but the core message has to get viral too. Say no to dowry, marriage or no marriage.
