Women In India

From the Economic Times:
"Terming actor Sanjay Dutt's comments on his sister using her maiden name as "very very sad", Women and Child Development Minister Renuka Chowdhry today said the Constitution has given the right to any woman to choose her surname.

"It is very very sad. The Constitution has given a right to women. They can choose any name they want," Chowdhry told reporters here. "

Forgive my ignorance in this area, but I would be interested on any comments regarding this article. Just from reading this article alone,dame upon marriage. Is this a very irrugular occurrance or is this trend becoming more popular - though I would suspect mainly in the larger cities as opposed to the more rural areas.
