Change is needed in dress codes which had remained unchanged for decades
Vishnu Mohan | 23 Feb 2011

Fair price shops should be encouraged to keep well knit trousers and decent shirts to enable people living with meagre income purchase these items with ease.

PARENTS CAN make children feel happy and proud by adhering to new dress codes and shedding away the older habits. This effort on behalf of parents will be a small step but would bring in significant good results for the society. Three types of dresses are common sight in urban and more in rural areas – men folks wearing dhotis, lungies (coloured dhotis) or pyjamas come out of the house and seen visiting public places and markets in this dress. Therefore, it is time, for concerned people to do everything to bring about a change in these dress codes which had remained unchanged for decades or centuries.

Decent casual wear pants (trousers) with decent shirts should be made available in plenty at affordable rates. Fair price shops should be encouraged to keep well knit trousers and decent shirts to enable people living with meagre income purchase these items with ease.
 
It is alright if people wearing dhoties or lungies or pyjamas while being in the house but when then come out of the house for either taking a walk or for visiting some place the ideal choice of clothes should be trousers and shirts. This measure would necessitate manufactures of lungies, dhoties and pyjamas to switch over to manufacturing good quality pants (trousers) and shirts at affordable rates.

Wearing up-to-date dresses enhances self esteem and confidence and once again it is reiterate that children will feel immensely satisfied seeing their parents changing to better dress codes.

Hoping the above merits consideration with the right quarters.
