Another scary story from actual life of Indian women. Haryana, a state of India that is notorious for female feticide and killing of girl child is now infamous for another reason too.

They have a rampant practice of buying brides from poverty stricken families. These women or girls are called “molki” or “Paro”.

Mostly these women end up in hell- they are sexually abused, sometimes forced to prostitution and used as free laborers- in home and in fields. They don’t have any right on property of those husbands that have bought them, nor do their children have any right on their father’s property.

The government as usual sleeps and the hopeful hope a society like this respects its women!

  1. OMG this is a heart wrenching fact. There needs to be a movement to stop all this abuse. we are not living in dark ages but the age of information and something needs to be done. This is intolerable by any standard. Thanks for sharing the story and you are doing a great service by posting this information for the whole world to read. Bravo to you.

  2. At least the truth is being told which is a step toward eradicating these practises. I’m sure it will take time (too long for those who are being abused right now) but the truth being told is the start. Keep up the good work. Are there any charities that are fighting these injustices?

  3. notorious for female feticide and killing of girl child. This happens elsewhere also like in the Punjab, Gujarat, and the number of gits there is falling so much so brides have to be brought from else where and often one bride for two brothers! Physical killing of girls or of their fetus is one thing but the attitudes is wide spread. How many of us address daughters as “beta, zara suno” and never a son as “beti, zara idhar aao” !

    1. I really feel sad for these girls who are sold off to these states, even if they are given the status of wife just imagine how much they have to adjust- they have to learn a new language, take up an absolutely alien lifestyle… its a hell for them! I truly hate their parents if they do it willingly.

  4. I’ve noticed that women in India, heck, throughout South Asia, have to deal with a lot of ingrained, socially sanctioned misogyny. There’s much progress to be made, and an awful lot of good that needs to be achieved.

    1. what is that cosmetic bill? don’t know, am not curious to know, I believe indian women should walk around armed to boots and ready to kick asuras right on their teeth with their boots!
