Actor and model Dr. CK Singh is marrying Priti Singh of Janakpur. The marriage is different than other such marriages in Terai regions. In the marriage Dr. Singh will not accept any dowry.
Dr. Singh is one of the goodwill ambassadors of a NGO fighting against child marriage and dowry tradition, BHORE. In one of the programs to create awareness against dowry system, Dr. Singh had promised not to take any dowry in his marriage. He kept his promise and has convinced his family and his to-be-wife’s family to perform dowry-less marriage.
In the beginning, both parties were not happy when he refused to accept dowry. It was not easy to continence them but, his reasoning worked and Dr. Singh and Priti are ready to marry on April 22, 2015.
The deep rooted tradition of dowry system has created a lot of problem in Nepali society. The tradition needs to be abolished to make society better. We hope the imitative of Dr. Singh will cause positive impact in the society and help eliminate dowry system.
We at xenapli appreciate Dr. Singh’s effort and wish him success in his mission. We also congratulate Dr. Singh and Priti in advance for their marriage and wish them a long-lasting married life.
Another goodwill ambassador of BHORE is actress Garima Pant.
