Women In This Andhra Village Are Fined Rs 2000 If They Are Found Wearing Nightie Before Sunset

For the past nine months, women in a village in AP’s West Godavari district have stopped wearing the innocuous, flowing ‘nightie’ during the day. Thanks to a diktat by the village elders who decided that nighties are meant only for night.

The nine-member committee of elders of Tokalapalli village even have a carrot-andstick strategy in place to ensure none of the 1,800-odd women disobey their diktat.

Any woman found wearing a nightie between 7am and 7pm is fined Rs 2,000 and anyone who snitches on such women is given a Rs 1,000 reward.Click Here: All Blacks Rugby Jersey
