    For quite some time, I am wondering about how things could change, as change of attitude is very difficult without full dedication from both sides. Money give-out is good, if that is utilized for the well-being of a girl to make her feel a young and confidant woman. But if this money after 20 years is to be used on the rituals for show-off during say marriage, then purpose is defeated.

    how a change can be achieved: Start at the micro level. Make a model village, where girls are taken utmost care of. They are nurtured to become well-educated, leaders, managers, and best house-holders. Then such infection ought to be spread out, as an example to others. Once successful within a few years, this attitude got to spread like an epidemic across nations. A desire to be a better human being, and keep on progressing. And as they say - things start from our own family. Once that is taken care of, then next close relations. And it is not difficult to realize that all of us are related by the same bond via Him.

    Just a few thoughts.

    Regards.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
