Dowry system is a black mark in India. Govt should punish the groom family who ask for dowry. It should be totally abolished from cities to village

The dowry system in ancient India was not like the existing one. Earlier, the groom had to give some gift or money in terms of gold to the father of the bride to marry the girl. Now, the father of the girl has to offer dowry to the groom. The scenario changed in reverse! If the ancient system makes problem to the groom and the existing one is for bride. Anyway, there is no different opinion in the dowry practises which are evil to the society.

Can you explain to the community over here, how it works? From other discussion threads I understand, that it is different from what gives me the simple translation in my dictionary.
