NILOKHERI, India -- An ideal groom in this dusty farming village is a vegetarian, does not drink, has good prospects for a stable job and promises his bride-to-be an amenity in high demand: a toilet.
Questions to Ponder:
1) What can you learn about the local rural culture of India from this article?
2) What is the status of women in India? How is it changing?
EQ: How does popular culture (western toilets) influence and impact the local culture (Indian marriage doweries and women's rights) of India?
