Kerala Uniform Row: Photographer’s Facebook Post Leads To School’s Controversial Uniform Change

A school at Aruvithura in Kottayam, Kerala, has found itself in the middle of a raging controversy that recently erupted online. It was the design of its new school uniform that triggered the entire debate. Ever since photographer Zachariah Ponkunnam posted an image of the same on Facebook and reportedly described it as “vulgar”, the school has been at the receiving end of immense criticism and complaints. In fact, the barrage of complaints prompted the school to appoint a five-member PTA executive committee to look into the complaints.
