Woman is still a 'property' like Mahabharat Times.  The Pandava lost their wife in gamble.  Recently, some body could not repay loan and so submitted his wife to the lender. What a bizarre way to repay loan. This happens in India only with unique Hindu culture and traditions.

    You should not relate such incidents to a religion. This can happen to anyone. Still there are people who are using ladies as a property or thing. Strong punishments should given to the culprits.

    These evils of the society were there and will be there. Religion is not the reason in all all such evils. There are other reasons like ignorance, wrong parenting are some of the reasons.

    Such rare incidents happen in our society when people forget the meaning of humanity due to their dirty culture and perverted minds. But I think we should not drag Hindu culture in between and enforce all responsibilities on its shoulder.

    Beliefs are not  just constricted to Hindu religion. Hindu culture in no way should be blamed for this..

    Connecting Hindu religion with a wife being treated as property by a debt ridden man is bizarre. Pandavas losing Draupdi in gambling is an example to be learnt from and not a justification of the practice. Where in Hinduism it is stated that woman is to be treated as a property.

    What is kanya daan?  This means- 'Donating girl'.  At wedding ceremony,  the daughter is 'donated'  (daan).  You donate something or give 'daan'  only of something considerewd 'property'.  The example of Drupadi lost in gamble is also not so bizarre. How could a wife be a bet in gamble if she was not considered property. Nowhere except India, you will find woman considered as property.

    Sir, societies are changing. Beliefs are changing. These are the days of "Woman' Equality." these plays of Puranas are not relevant to modern times. Now, one has many options to choose his or her way of life. Nothing is mandatory.

     You have mistaken it. 'Kanyadan' doesn't mean donating kanya. It means donating for kanya. In wedding when we gift some money or other gifts to bide is called kanydan.

    The pavitra sentiment behind the hindi term kanyadan cannot be captured in simple translation as donating a girl. and then taking shelter in its legal interpretation. In Christian marriages it is said " I take thee as my -----" . By your interpretation one can only take something which belongs to someone. So it is wrong to say that it exists only in India. But times have changed and today it is moving rapidly towards equality between both sexes.
