[Bangalore - INDIA] Several schools in India's IT capital have begun banning any mother who drops their children off to school in their nightie.
"It is indiscipline to run out like that. I have also been trying to change this for a long time but they do not seem to understand. So it is now a rule," said Dr Roseline, the Principal of the Ulsoor School of Academics in central Bangalore to NDTV.
Parents seem to have a dress code for school runs which permits salwaar-kameezes, saris and jeans for women. Fathers cannot show up in shorts or pyjamas. However with the humidity in Bangalore generally high at this time of the year, some mothers have criticised the decision.
"I don't understand the problem, I'm not going to dress up just to go drop my child to school at 8 o'clock in the morning" one mother told us.
However some have greeted the decision. "The mother is the first guru. If the mother dresses well, so will the kids. We just have to wake up a bit earlier," added a mother to NDTV.
