Read this e-mail carefully and answer the questions. To: susandixon@hotmail.co.uk From: Kalpana Subject: Thaipusam festival

w

Hi Susan, Are you looking forward to Christmas? I am, but for me, January is also going to be an important month because we will celebrate “Thaipusam”. This traditional Hindu Festival is the time when we pay homage to the Hindu God Lord Murugan. As you know, during my exchange in the UK I missed all the traditional festivities a lot so now it is time to take part in them again. Moreover, this year I am very excited because we’re going to the Batu Caves, which are near my house in Kuala Lumpur. This is a very good place to see the Thaipusam celebration and my mum told me last year almost 1 million people were there! The night before Thaipusam, there is a procession from the city centre to the caves. There is a special silver chariot and lots of devotees walk from Kuala Lumpur to the caves. It’s 15 km and they stop every 3 km so it takes quite a long time as you can imagine! Some devotees shave their heads and carry presents. When the procession reaches the caves the serious ritual begins. Then priests put shiny objects such as golden bracelets and rings on their faces, tongues, legs or other parts of the body! People carry a present or pierce their body to gain merit for themselves or their family. I already pierced my ears and my nose when I was a child. But don’t worry, I am not going to pierce the rest of my body. I am happy that I can go and celebrate this festival in such an important place! I want to hear from my favorite host family! Tell me about your sister. Did she enjoy her trip to Glasgow? What about you? Are you still working in the pub? Has the Spanish girl rented the room where I was? Write to me soon!

Fifty years of television My mother was telling me about how she and her family got their first television when she was a teenager. Of course it was black and white. She said she only watched it in the evenings, when all the family sat together in the living room. She doesn't remember ever watching it in the morning or early afternoon. Remote controls did not exist and there were only two channels. So whenever they wanted to change the channel they had to get up and press the button on the television set. What a nuisance! When I was young we had only about 4 or 5 different channels. I think they were channels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6. My bothers and sisters and I would sometimes fight about which channel to watch. But we usually enjoyed the same shows. Nowadays we can get hundreds of channels on TV. I can't believe it! There are channels with only old movies, and channels with only cooking, and channels with only fishing. It's amazing! There is a channel for everything. I wonder how much my brothers and sisters and I would fight if we had hundreds of channels when we were children. Of course we had only one television set. These days I notice families with 2 or 3 or more television sets in their homes. I guess it stops people from arguing over which channel to choose from.

The Yeti: Myth or Reality?

The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is a monster who lives in the Himalayan regions of Nepal, India and Tibet. People have believed in the Yeti for thousands of years and it is part of the Himalayan history and mythology. The first person who saw the Yeti was a German photographer in 1925, but many Nepalese people affirm having seen the Yeti as well. Mountaineers also say having seen large footprints in the snow. In 1970, British mountaineer Don Whillans announced to have seen a strange creature when climbing Annapurna. According to Whillans, he heard some strange screams. His Sherpa guide believed to be a Yeti's call. That night, he saw a dark shape moving near his camp. The next day, he observed some human-like footprints in the snow, and that evening, viewed with binoculars a creature that was searching for food not far from his camp. However, expeditions to find the Yeti have failed, perhaps because of the difficult weather conditions in the Himalayas, thus there is no scientific evidence about its existence. The Nepalese describe the Yeti as a nocturnal creature, which kills animals, but which is not necessarily dangerous to humans. It is approximately 1’82m tall, has human characteristics, and is covered with short brown hair and has white spots on his chest. He has a broad face, a large mouth and long teeth. His arms are very long and reach almost to his knees. It stands up when it attacks. When Tibetans are asked what animal looks like the Yeti, they choose the orangutan. The idea of an ancient species surviving for millions of years hidden from humans is difficult to believe but fascinating as shown by other existing myths such as the Loch Ness monster or the Coelacanth fish. However, if the Yeti does exist and wants to remain unknown to us, the frozen landscape of the Himalayas is one of the safest places for him to be.
