Geography
Boarding Home

I live and go school in the Kalrayan Hills in Tamil Nadu, India. Owned and operated by the Arcot Lutheran Church — an Indian, Dalit-led church body in the state of Tamil Nadu — the boarding homes here serve very poor, rural, mostly indigenous students. Many families in these hills rely on subsistence farming, or have to travel far away from home to find low-wage labor.

Grade

7th Standard

Favorite Activity

My favorite activity is playing cricket. From Wikipedia: Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the center of which is a 22-yard pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat (and running between the wickets), while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this (by preventing the ball from leaving the field, and getting the ball to either wicket) and dismiss each batter (so they are "out").

Caste

I am an indigenous person in India. Also called "Adivasi", "Scheduled Tribe", or "Tribal" in India, indigenous people were some of the earliest inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent, and have been historically marginalized and oppressed.
