Pokhara in Nepal has banned the 3 Ms for its students – it is the will of the community. The banned Ms are - the mobile phone, the motorbikes and the miniskirts. The intention is to bring some sort of discipline among its students.

The decision was taken in a meeting between the school authorities, parents and the local city administration. There are roughly 20,000 students in this city. Consequent to this ban, the teenage students would not be able to possess mobile phones while in the school or ride motorbikes to school.

The ban on riding motorbikes is to reduce the number of road accidents and the ban on miniskirts is to preserve the modesty of the girls – the ruling is that they should wear trousers or knee length skirts.
