दहेज़ में बेटी जलाई है जाती, काश कोई बेटी पराई न होती...

ग्राम- लालतापुर, ब्लॉक्-नवगढ़, जिला- चन्दौली, उत्तरप्रदेश से रीना दहेज़ पर आधारित एक गीत प्रस्तुत कर रही हैं :
दहेज़ में बेटी, जलाई है जाती
काश कोई बेटी, पराई न होती
बेटी ही घर की, लक्ष्मी कहाती
फिर भी इनका, अपमान होता
हालत गरीबी की, सब जानते
दानव- दहेज़ को, पहचानते
अपने ही घर को, सजाके है रखती
काश कोई बेटी, पराई न होती...
