Hello, my name is Pragasi , I live in India and I have one brother and one sister: my twin brother Rajish and my little sister Deepa.
My village is in the south of India.
There , I go to school and I live with my parents and grandparents, in a little , colorful house . 4
Every morning I wake up early and I ride my bike to the fountain , to get some water.
Afterwards I run to school with my sister Deepa. I love going to school!
Once the lessons have finished , we cannot waste any time . We go home very fast, we have to help with the housecleaning. The laundry is waiting for me , we have to go to the market, bring some more waterâ&#x20AC;Ś
When I finish early, I paint some mandalas with many colours and I read tales.
Rajish and I will finish our primary studies this yearâ&#x20AC;Ś 12
- We cannot let Pragasi go to school next year, because it is even farther away and she would waste a lot of time . Who else is going to help with the home tasks? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my father says.
-It is a pity she will not continue , she is an excellent 14 student â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my grandmother answers.
I wish I could go on studyingâ&#x20AC;Ś. and one day I may become a teacher and help the girls of my country learn many things.
