Birth records show that infants arrive in this world in a ratio of about 51% male to 49% female IF left to nature. When humans learned how to select which sex would be allowed to mature in the womb and be born, the problem of no women for some men to marry developed. MAN made problem. Until girl babies are as prized as much male babies the problem will exist and even worsen. Wise up men of India and welcome girl babies as much as male babies or your sons will have no wives or children

All but three were not married. Doing the daily chores – cooking, cleaning. The lack of enough women to marry, for them, has forced them into a situation where they live communally and have to share in the daily tasks.
These wordings in this story left me confused about the essence of this whole enquiry.Was this story made because if there are no enough women, there will be no one to work at home and men will have to participate in the activities of daily living. Is this the only value that a women is worthy of?

http://blogs.reuters.com/photographers-b log/2011/10/12/a-village-of-

eternal-bachelors/

i made comment, as follow:
there are 2 other recent articles about cross state marriages in India. one

concerns importing brides to the New Delhi region and the other concerns

importing brides to the Gujarati region. both articles describe the local

cultural differences between man and wife. a reader needs to remember or

understand the fact that it is the bride who migrates and must conform to a

new world. keep in mind, too, that a sizable dowry from the side of the

bride had long been the customary (and still prevalent) practice throughout

India, but now dowry is outlawed “with a blind eye” in the land of India ~

this comment “is pending approval” for addition as a post

She was especially worried about disparities in effective fertility rates as described here and contended that many if not most of the world’s problems are caused by too many people for the available resources. Overpopulation, in a word. While this is one way to reduce population growth, it will bring with it a whole host of other problems. GodKnows in his comment above has hinted at only a few of them to come. She committed suicide when she realized nobody would take her seriously or heed her warnings, many of which have come, as illustrated here, all too true.

Because, when the girl is getting married, the parents have to give a lot of money wih the girl to the new family. Otherwise, the girl will have a very bad suituation in the new family. The money required is such a big amount and might have the parents bankrupt.
