|This is smart and conservative
Then afterwards, I was thinking why they would do that? Is it deliberate, to dress school going girls in dowdy outfits covered from neck to toe so that they are kept safe? Are they respecting the sensibilities of the Indian middle class where certain people still have reservations about their daughters wearing skirts and shorts? Or is it that the school is just plain conservative?
Whatever the reason be, I can not stop thinking about those little girls sweltering in their classrooms while I sit comfortably in my air conditioned office.
