This article is based on the insalubrious effect that dowry system has created in India. Crimes and vulgarities are being committed by people of all caste and strata in the name of dowry. In fact even elites are not spared by this malady. The authors have tried to pinch the issue and at the same time instigated people, particularly the youngsters to do away with dowry. The tile of the article is satirically based on the word dowry itself, i.e., do-wry which imply that dowry as an entity should be shown a wry face. Further elaboration is under scripted.
