Despite preventive litigation, dowry remains a widespread "social evil"--a marker of social status--more common, disturbingly, among the educated urban middle classes than among the urban poor or rural population in India. While caste restrictions on the choice of marriage partners seem to have eased, socio-economic factors have gained in significance. Dowry is also making inroads into communities that did not follow the practice traditionally.

A Most Unsuitable Girl, is a tragicomedy play on the prevalent social practice in India on giving dowry upon the marriage of young woman by her parents and how in certain circumstances the absence (or lack ) of dowry might have potentially fatal consequences for the bride. The play, despite having been written in a comic style, is more serious and hard hitting compared with other tragic plays written on the subject. The characters in the play take varying positions on the phenomenon of dowry and even on dowry death itself, which reflect perspectives prevalent in mainstream Indian society. In the list of characters there is a judge a prosecutor and a defence lawyer who discuss legal angles, which are not without interest. In addition the play points to the power and sexual jealousy of mother-in-law playing a much ignored but extremely significant role in the carrying out of these unspeakably beastial crimes. Conquest at Noon, the second play, is a historical fantasy. As is commonly known, India was successfully colonized by the British for three hundred years. In this play, the author creates a historical fantasy in which India was the colonizing power and the British were the subject population.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Indologie, Note: 1,0, Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Veranstaltung: Südasienethnologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die indische Praxis der Dowry, der Mitgiftzahlungen der Familie der Braut im Rahmen einer Hochzeit, wird vor allem mit Negativschlagzeilen verbunden: Immer wieder liest man von sogenannten Dowry-Morden, bei denen junge Bräute von der Schwiegerfamilie mit hohen Dowry-Ansprüchen terrorisiert werden, bis diese Selbstmord begehen, oder umgebracht werden, damit die Familie durch eine Wiederverheiratung des Sohnes erneut Dowry erhalten kann. Dabei ist die Dowry-Praxis seit Jahren gesetzlich verboten. Dowry wird gemeinhin mit einer Geringschätzung und Diskriminierung der Frau verbunden und als einer der Gründe betrachtet, warum weiblicher Nachwuchs in Indien als Bürde betrachtet wird und unerwünscht ist. Dem gegenübergestellt wird die (mittlerweile weniger gängige, aber von einigen Gruppen noch praktizierte) Zahlung eines Brautpreises an die Familie der Braut von Geschlechterforschern als Ausdruck der Wertschätzung der Frau interpretiert. Der von Vielen behauptete Wandel diverser Gruppen in ganz Indien von einem Brautpreis- zu einem Dowrysystem wird daher als eine Verschlechterung des Status der Frau gesehen. In dieser Arbeit soll die Debatte um Brautpreis und Dowry vor dem Hintergrund des sozialen Stellenwertes von Frauen in Indien betrachtet werden. In Kapitel 2 werden zunächst mythologische Grundlagen, traditionelle Rollen sowie die soziale Stellung von Frauen in der Hindugesellschaft skizziert. Kapitel 3 dient der Veranschaulichung der Bedeutung von Heirat in der Hindugesellschaft sowie deren Regeln und Formen. Kapitel 4 widmet sich der Thematik von Brautpreis und Dowry. Nachdem ein Überblick über Wurzeln, Tradition und Praxis beider gegeben wurde, werden anhand zweier Studien die Thesen überprüft, ob I. die Stellung der Frau in Brautpreis zahlenden Gruppen tatsächlich besser ist als in Dowry zahlenden Gruppen, sowie ob II. in aktueller Zeit ein Wandel diverser Gruppen von einem Brautpreis- zu einem Dowrysystem stattfindet. Zum Abschluss werden die gewonnenen Erkenntnisse über Dowry und Brautpreis im Kontext des Status von Frauen in Indien interpretiert.

Why did a practice that had been considered a duty stop being a duty, or, conversely, why did daughters lose the right they had previously enjoyed of receiving from their parents the wherewithal to contribute to the support of their marriage? Despite the many historical and anthropological studies about dowry, to the best of my knowledge this is the first analysis of its disappearance. My hypothesis at a general level is that the institution of dowry was among the many fetters to the development of capitalism, such as entail, monopolies, and the privileges of the nobility, of churchmen, and of army officers, that disappeared as the influence of industrial capital spread worldwide. Yet entail, monopolies, and privileges were abolished legally, whereas the dowry was not abolished legally, it disappeared in practice. Thus the question remains: what led individual families to change their customs regarding dowry? And they changed remarkably. I found that, in the seventeenth century, practically all propertied families in São Paulo endowed every one of their daughters, favoring them by giving dowries far exceeding the value of what their brothers would inherit later on. By the early nineteenth century, in contrast, long before the custom of dowry had disappeared, less than a third of the propertied families in São Paulo were endowing their daughters, and those who did gave comparatively smaller dowries, with a very different content, while some families endowed only one or two of several daughters. How to explain this transformation in customs? I will argue throughout this book that the practice of dowry altered because of changes in society, the family, and marriage. Since dowry is a transfer of property between family members, changes in the concept of property, in the way property is acquired and held, or in business practices are relevant to an understanding of change in the institution of dowry, as are changes in the function of the family in society, the way it is integrated into production, and how it supports its members. The changes experienced by Brazilian society that help explain the decline and disappearance of the dowry are many of the same transformations that have been observed in more central regions of the Western world. Through a long process that started in the eighteenth century and continued into the early twentieth century, Brazil changed from a hierarchical, ancien régime type of society in which status, family, and patron-client relations were primary to a more individualistic society in which contract and the market increasingly reigned. A society divided vertically into family clans changed gradually into a society divided horizontally into classes. As the state grew stronger, it took over functions previously performed by the family, which in seventeenth-century São Paulo's frontier society had included municipal government and defense. Between the seventeenth and the late nineteenth centuries, a new concept of private property developed. The family changed from being the locus of both production and consumption to being principally the locus of consumption, while "family" and "business" became formally separate. The power of the larger kin declined and the conjugal family became more important, and marriage was transformed from predominantly a property matter to an avowed "love" relationship, the economic underpinnings of which were no longer made explicit. At the same time there was a change from the strong authority of the patriarch over adult sons and daughters to their greater independence, and from arranged marriages to marriages freely chosen by the bride and groom. These transformations took place in Brazil starting in the eighteenth century and continuing throughout the nineteenth century in a gradual and complex manner so that both old and new characteristics often coexisted at a given time, sometimes even within the same family. As these changes occurred, the
