Last week Remya Ramachandran, who hails from Thrissur in Kerala, took to Facebook and made an unusual announcement that she was calling off her marriage. 

The reason, she mentioned, was the demand for dowry from her fiance's family, which started right after the engagement.

Remya 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."

 Her post soon went viral on social media with numerous congratulatory messages praising her decision pouring in for her. "Perfect decision. Let this encourage other women too," one person wrote. 

On Sunday, Remya in a new post thanked everyone who supported her. "I juz wanted to let my circle know about cancellation of marriage, never expected this to break. Meanwhile, I would like to explain that the decision was my declaration. Never had an intention to hurt anyone specifically. Please don’t use my post for personalized humiliation, instead use it against our social norms. People are ignorant for their own convenience and profit. Thank you once again," she wrote.
