The defiant cap

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Björn Rudberg

An Indian lawyer was incarcerated at the Old-Fort jail on Constitution-Hill in Johannesburg on a two-month sentence for refusing to register and have his fingerprints taken while resolutely staying at Transvaal in the first decade of last century.

He was forced to wear the prisoner’s uniform that included a cap which the lawyer made his USP in India.  A white-cap pointed at front and back with a wide band gave it a near military-look. The cap wearer in those times was identified as a person opposing the British-rule in India. The cap is today known as Gandhi-cap.

Words <100
The cap in its many avtars continues to rule Indian politics and elections till date.

Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.
