Harda (MP): Gandhi caps were briefly in vogue during the recent Anna Hazare movement, but a government school in this district has all its students donning the headgear for the last 125 years as a mark of respect to the Father of the Nation.

The 500 students in Shaskiya Buniyadi Shala in Khirkiya tehsil, about 35 km away from the district headquarters in Madhya Pradesh, have been voluntarily donning a Gandhi cap everyday since its inception 125 years ago, its official Moti Singh Suchar claimed today on the occasion of the 142nd birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

By wearing the cap, they feel as if they are fully energised to serve the country and become totally disciplined, Principal S K Jape said adding though that it was not mandatory to wear it.
