Generally people talk about social issues with a lot of zest and pretend to be intellectual and modern but I've seen their perception changing ironically.
Recently one of S's close relatives got married.
“How much dowry he has got?” "A" another relative asked, smiling.
'S' said "Oh, we are against the dowry system and don’t promote this pathetic social structure".
“Oho! It means he hasn’t got anything.” 'A' said!
