We are living in the 21st century and still, there are many places in this world, where you will find some bizarre things. In rural areas, men don't have to earn sources and they found this easy way to rent their wives for small money.
However, a girl becomes a wife after marriage but there is a place in India where wives are available on rent. It is an old practice also. Even in metro cities, people from adjoining villages use to take a loan from microfinance institutions and when they are not able to pay their installments then in some cases they offer their wives ', daughters to the local EMI collector for a few nights so that they get more time for installments.
The evil custom has been going on for decades in the Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh. The evil is also known as the “Dhadicha”.
Every year a market is placed on this place named Shivpuri, where it is customary to give girls on rent. You can rent any woman for a year as your wife here. The man arrives in this market and makes their wives for a year by paying the price for girls of their choice, The cost of girls is around 15,000 to 25,000 INR.
You will be surprised to know that in this practice, the guardians rent their girls for another man happily and marry their girl to that person. If that person wants, then he keeps that girl for more than a year but for this, he has to pay more money.
Apart from this, a contract between a girl and a male in this mischief is also written. For this, stamp papers are ranging from 10 rupees to 100 rupees which are used to write the contract.
However, many women and NGOs have also tried to raise their voices against this evil and the administration has also taken strict vigilance, but even today, this mischief is exists in society.
