I was worried about dowry

“I came to Delhi from a village. Both of my parents died within one week only – my mother had jaundice and my father had a lung cancer.  They left me, and my four other sisters, and a brother. We were all unmarried. After two of my sisters got married, I came here in search of employment. My sister was living here, and helped me find some work. Now, I’m feeling better after joining SEVA, an organisation for women in New Delhi. I was worried about dowry before marriage, but now I feel better, as me and my husband, we both are working. We are having a good married life since one and a half year.”
