  2. Dowry: the giant of dowry is opening its jaw widely to swallow the poor and middle class families. Settled boys are auctioned. Heavy cash, two wheelers, T.V., fridge, jewelry, furniture and other things.
  3. Beggary: In religious places, fairs and at railway stations. Everybody has to face the crowds of beggars. This is a great social evil.
  4. Illiteracy: These days the number of illiterate people is increasing day by day. The children are not sent to schools because they are needed to work in fields and factories. Only 40% people are educated.
