Every morning, Mum and I sit on the
verandah while Mum does my hair. The verandah runs the length of the
house and all the other rooms lead off it. In summer, there's always
a cool breeze blowing in through the verandah the verandah
I share a room with my sister,
Kona. She's fourteen. I'm twelve, nearly thirteen. Kona and I are
good friends and we spend a lot of time together, playing games.
Ludo is one of our favorites. Our brother, Rana, is sixteen. He's
studying hard now, and we don't see much of him.
Because it is January, and the
coolest time of year,Kona and I need warm jerseys in the evening.But
during the day we wear cotton dresses. for prayers and for school we
wear shalwar kameez-long time tunics and loose trousers. when we're
older, about fifteen , we'll wear saris.
