Salwar Revolution in Kerala

The government of kerala has permitted school teachers to wear salwar kameez to work. it'll soon be extended to college teachers too.

we must hand it to the various govts of kerala for coming out with such landmark and citizen friendly orders once in a way. and i like the argument that the unwritten law that women teachers wear sarees to work is a gendered one as there are no restrictions on men.

congratulations and thank you, kerala govt. it really required a govt order to change the fossilised mindset of the people.


  1. something which govt should have done before... :)

  2. Yes i agree with your thoughts, u missed that chance?

  3. A friend of mine who happened to be a Government school teacher protested the Sari-rule and chose to wear Salwars on pre-Govt-approval days! Hats off to people like her :-)
