Dowry is considered a heinous criminal act by the Supreme Court of India and the Government and is liable for penal punishments with fines and statutory imprisonment. However, in some places, the age-old tradition of a brides father showering the grooms family with gifts of money, precious metals and even property continues. Now, one college in Bengaluru, St. Josephs College in Shanti Nagar, to be precise, has been caught teaching the benefits of dowry in its material. In a Facebook post, one Rithika Ramesh shared a page of a B.A. Students Sociology textbook, which shows not one, but at least 7 advantages to the dowry system. Some of those benefits as being taught by that textbook are as follows: 1. Makes possible the marriage of ugly girls, who would otherwise not get any groom. 2.

Dowry helps poor but meritorious boys ...
