When I was a teenager some people thought that I am an Indian. I took pride of it, because I think Indian women are one of the most beautiful people in the world. I never been there, but really hoping to visit that country one day. Since I read the book Slumdog Millionaire I become more interesting with India. I try to retrieve some of my knowledge about this amazing country and add some more to it.
