Neckties are impractical in a tropical country such as ours, then why is it a part of our school uniforms. Doesn't it reflect our unchanging subordinate mentality ?

Such questions need to be attempted on your own to test your creative writing skills. However, these points might help you elaborate:

- A necktie is definitely impractical in a tropical country such as ours.
- Unfortunately, it is a part of school uniform of most schools.
- Most of the schools are simply aping the age-old colonial practise of wearing a necktie in formal dressing.
- It does reflect our subordinate mentality of following a western practise blindly without understanding its logic.
- We may have been earned our freedom in 1947, but true freedom will come when we are mentally free and can think independently!
- Even the defence forces in our country do not have a necktie as part of their summer uniform!
- It is high time that the schools rethink and redesign the uniform according to the prevalent weather conditions in the country.
