    This Woman Wrote A Beautiful Facebook Post About Cancelling Her Wedding Because Of Dowry

    And it's being shared thousands of times.

    This is Remya Ramachandran, a resident of Thrissur, Kerala. She recently announced that she's calling off her wedding.

    In her status that has been shared over a thousand times, she wrote:

    "To all those asking for the date of my wedding, the family that before the engagement had said that they only wanted me, post the engagement, they were demanding 50 sovereigns of gold and 5 lakh rupees. As I am staunchly against dowry and because I believe that buying anything for a man and his family who are so unreliable is a loss, I don't want to continue with the marriage."

    After receiving positive support from people, she wrote another post in which she thanked all those who supported her.
