Has anyone ever been to India? As everybody knows, I am from Indian. I came here when I was 18 years. I saw many differences between America and Indian. There are so different reasons which make me unique in this country. I am a person who is proud of my clothing, languages and festivals.
First of all, I am proud of my clothing. Those are so important to me. We have different dress for marriage. For an example, I am from Gujarat, so I can wear only Guajarati Sari in my marriage. I cannot wear any other clothes. I think it is really good.I feel religious person when I put this clothing on; it also give to respect to my religion.
In Indian each states has their own clothing styles. We have almost 28 states so we have different many clothing styles. We also have different clothe for different festivals and married and unmarried women have different clothing. Indian dress tells about their culture. If a girl wearing a sari (one of the Indian clothes), anyone can tell that she is from Gujarat (one of the states in India). Second, I am proud of my languages. In the U.
S.A, people speak two languages, or some people can speak three languages. We could hardly find people who speak more than three languages.
I can speak almost five languages because I grew up with those many languages. We have more than 21 languages in India. Same as clothe, each states has its own language but we also have one national language which is Hindi. Almost everybody knows this language in India. If someone speaking Gujarati (Indian language), I can tell that he/she is from Gujarat. I am able to communicate with any Indian.It is easy for me to learn new language because I am used to learn new language. According me, it is really good thing.
Finally, I am the person who is proud of my (Indian) festival. We have more than 100 festivals. Each state has their own festivals which honor their God. We have one big story behind each festival. For example, we celebrate Holi festival which is at the end of February or early March. It is also call festival of color.
We celebrate this festival because Holika tried to burn Prahald (Holika’s brother’s child).Holika and her brother was a bad person and Prahald was a nice and good person that is the reason they did not like Prahald and Holika tried to burn him. On that day some metrical happened and Holika got burn because he was prying god all the time and helping other people. Nothing happened to Prahald. So we celebrate that festival because good people won against bad people.
That’s how our festivals teach us our religion. These stories teach us to become nice person and do not harm anyone. That is the reason, I proud of my festivals. At the end of this essay, everyone knows why I have proud on my clothing, festival and languages.
