I have always thought that the women of India were some of the most beautiful women on Earth. The colour of their skin, the shape and depth of their eyes, their mysteriousness and modesty, everything about them. Even the old ones, with wrinkled skin and greying hair, possess a pristine look and natural beauty no make-up queen could ever attain.
Yet we know that India is one of the most crowded and over-populated nations on earth, and in fact, starving- although most of this is due to religious views. (Recalling the picture of the woman with hungry children pouring milk and cream into a bowl for the rats)
So, perhaps it is their tradition that is causing all this trouble. If the men had to pay huge dowries for a woman the woman would be treated as though she were worth something and the families would want to have girls instead of boys.
However, what we truly have is a great pedjudice, a gender predjudice. If the man doesn't want a daughter...he doesn't want his own wife. The ridiculous part of this is, the man doesn't seem to realize that by putting women in that position, they degrade themselves to the same level of worth.
Take a look at these videos presented, and know that the people of India would truly be the most beautiful people on earth, if they would only treat themselves and each other as such.
