India: The NRI Marriage and Dowry

A blogger at Together We Bond shares a heartbreaking story of a marriage that fails because of the husband's demand for dowry. “Then came the expectations. He wanted $25000 from my parents that too to be transferred to his account immediately. Initially I did not comprehend why?”

  • Neha,
    The story is a fake. The blogger never went to the US. There are gaping holes in her story. But here is possibly a more accurate view of what would have had happened if she did.

  • A must know reality for all those NRI, who may think they are Crorepati and honest and spend a lot of money for the women well fare for this country.

    Renuka in dowry battle
    Hyderabad, Oct. 26: Congress MP Renuka Chowdhary has filed a complaint against daughter Poojita’s in-laws, accusing them of harassment for dowry, says our special correspondent. Poojita was married to London-based opthalmologist Satya Sai Prasad a few months ago.

    Renuka called on police officials and chief minister Chandrababu Naidu recently after filing the complaint on October 18.

    Poojita’s father-in-law, Lajpat Roy, a British national, was arrested at the airport when he arrived in Hyderabad from London. He was released on bail.

    The police had so far kept the issue under wraps.

    Will she come in lie dector test?
    I am 100% sure, it is extrotion she had done and that is the reson she is against all the NRI people.

    Grape is sour.. right?
