Razia JBS Navunda's Mahar released

The Milli Gazette Online

Mangalore: Youth have an important role to play in eradicating dowry, writer Amruth Someshwar has said, releasing Mahar, a collection of stories written by the late Razia JBS Navunda here on February 13. The youth should confront their parents on the issue if the need arises and convince them that society is better off without this practice. Noting that the dowry menace is not confined to any particular community, he said the book reflects on this aspect and other social issues in a mature and objective manner. Lauding the efforts in a section of society to fight the dowry menace and create awareness about it, Mr. Someshwar advised such people to remain steadfast in their conviction on the issue. "The stories in the book compel the undivided attention of the readers and also take them through a world of human emotions and values without assuming any moral high ground on sensitive issues," he said. M. Shahnaz, editor of Anupama, who was the chief guest, said people such as Razia are proof that there is no dearth of writers, artistes and social workers who are sensitive to contemporary issues. 

While one may not be able to feel their presence, they live in the minds of people through their works and achievements, she said. Ms. Shahnaz pointed out that the ability of Razia to deal with a sensitive issue such as "Mahar" — the money given to a bride by the groom as dictated by the Quran— deserves appreciation.
