I live and go to school at the Siloam Boarding Home in Thirukoilure, India. Owned and operated by the Arcot Lutheran Church — an Indian, Dalit-led church body in the state of Tamil Nadu — Siloam serves about 700 girls between first and 12th Standard. Siloam is the largest LPGM-sponsored boarding home.
My favorite activity is playing Kho-Kho. From Wikipedia: Kho Kho is a popular tag game invented in Maharashtra, India. Nine players on each team enter the field who sit on their knees (chasing team), and 3 extra (defending team) who try to avoid being touched by members of the opposing team. It is one of the two most popular traditional tag games in the Indian subcontinent, the other being Kabaddi.
I come from a marginalized class in the Indian Caste system. "Other Backward Class" is a collective term used by the Government of India to classify castes which are educationally or socially disadvantaged. It is one of several official classifications of the population of India, along with Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SCs and STs). [via Wikipedia]
