The Dowry Custom in Bangladesh

Some manners and customs have maintained existence with their harmful power in Bangladesh, a congested country. Among of them, one is the dowry custom and it has been extension since long time in our rustic society. Mainly, this custom came from the manliness society. In rustic society, at the time of a girl’s marriage, her helpless parents have to give wealth to the bridegroom as gifts and the wealth is called dowry. Dowry has become a disease in the villages of Bangladesh. In villages, the poor parents have to buy the happiness of their daughter by exchanging money from the group of bridegroom. The group of bridegroom considers the dowry as their due and the bride as the thing of business. If the parents of bride can give the dowry, then the daughter can be married. Otherwise, the daughter has to lead a virgin’s life at a corner of home. Sometimes it is seen that the girl is married but she has borne oppression in her in law’s house because her parents could not fulfill the demand of the bridegroom. On the other hand, if the parents of the bride are rich, the quantity of dowry is being increased. In our country, many hard rules are being written for uprooting the dowry custom. Therefore, to remove this manifest problem from our country, women have to be sincere and strong. They should also do obstruction to this custom. Then Bangladesh will become a dowry less country.


Parents are the greatest gift of Almighty to a child. They give her birth, show her the beautiful world and bring her up with great care and love. They dedicated themselves to their child. Whatever they do only for their child. They can do anything for their child. They try their best to give their child the best of everything. From childhood, they try to make her happy and give her the best of basic needs. They work hard to show her the right path of life and make her self-dependent and honest. No other persons can give the love and care of parents to a child instead of her own parents. Therefore, every child should respect her parents in every time and try hard to make them happy.

The Rain of Shrabon

Shrabon do not come alone
Makes sky cloudy,
Comes with rain
Makes anxious anybody's mind.

Be ringing over tin
The sound of patters,
If umbrella wants flying in air
Nobody can control it.

Makes whirling in the wind of Shrabon
All dust of roads,
If rain comes, be vigorous
The gentle flowers of Rainy Season.

Do filled the empty drains
Raises water over knee,
When cloud plays hide and seek
Everyone does whispering.

Does disordered all things
The tempestuous rain of Shrabon,
Then question rises on mind
What an uncommon!
