FC: Where I'm from | By:Kavitha Babu
1: Have you ever been o India? I have a few times. Let's start from the beginning, on November 10th,1998 a little girl was born in Chennai, India. Her name was Kavitha Babu. Let's see what she says about her life.
2: Well,I come from a big city called Chennai, where my grandma and grandpa live. | Most of my family lives there.
3: I lived in Tamil Nadu which is a state in India. I speak Tamil at home. Then again I speak English at school. I've lived in India for about two years. | The whole family moved to the U.S. then. I go there for vacation over the summer.
4: For a typical party you would wear something nice. On the other hand, if your going to a grand party you would wear something like that.(girl)
5: For a girl you would wear lots of jewelery and clothes that are well, grand! If you were a boy, not to fancy ,but peasant. In general you would wear something nice, possibly in silk. In India we are known for silk and clothing!
6: Now , the time you've been waiting for... FOOD!! When someone comes to our house for dinner or to visit, we would make a lot of food. In southern India we are known for our hospitality.
7: If you were at a wedding there would be 11-15 items of food. Many of my friends ask me why I don't it beef, well here's the reason. We think that a cow is sacred so that's why I don't eat beef.
8: There are so much things to learn about southern India. I don't even know everything ! Maybe someday you'll get to go there and see for yourself how great it is!!!
