Indian Culture & Feast Day (Secondary English)

India: Land of Contrasts

IMG_5875_hennaStudying the novel, Homeless Bird has introduced some of the students to Indian culture in a more personal and profound way. The girls in the Years 7 and 8 English class are a similar age to Koly, the protagonist of the story, and yet her life is vastly different to one encountered in western culture.

“…. The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race…
