Like every schoolgirl, I hate my uniform. It’s a churidhar and kurta, whose dupatta has to be pinned neatly. And we even have to plait our hair into two. It makes us look so bad and that’s the main reason why I hate it! Even a drop-dead gorgeous supermodel would look like a “not-worth-a-second-look” kinda girl in it. And you might as well imagine our problems….
All we ask for
I’ve seen girls of another totally ‘cool’ school, gloss their lips, use eyeliners, mascaras and perfumes everyday to school. Okay, now that’s too much. People, you’re going to school, which is supposed to be a place where you study (ahem), not a rockstar audition! And to think that all we ask for is to let us do our hair any way we want… sigh… But, like everything has a good side, I was really surprised to know that this uniform system has a positive point too. For the past three years, my birthday dress had been commented on, and made fun of by my friends who supposedly have a “great dress sense” (Yeah, they talk as if they design clothes for Miley).
Wearing a uniform is better than having to face the tension of choosing something good to wear and making yourself look pretty all week! And now, when I see my sister who’s about to get into college, renewing her wardrobe and surfing thousands of sites to check what’s ‘in’, I realise the use of not-so-nice uniforms even more. So, to all girls out there, who hate their uniforms, just remember, you’ve got college where you can show off with your dressing skills and be style divas. Till then, polish your shoes, iron your uniforms and look like a “ innocent girl” everyone loves to look at.
