1️⃣  Which part of your country do you like to live in?

2️⃣  What makes you feel proud of your country?

3️⃣ Do you know the history of your country well?

4️⃣ Will you stay in India in the future?

Which part of your country do you like to live in?

If I would be given an opportunity to relocate to a new part of India, then that place would definitely be Kerala – the god’s own country! Whenever I go there, I always left spellbound by the vibe of the state. Kerala seems nothing less than a heaven for someone who loves to be around the natural pleasures of life.

What makes you feel proud of your country?

I love being an Indian. It makes me so proud standing tall with shivers running down my spine as the National Anthem plays before a movie. I like the fact that we wear the cloak of a 5000-year-old civilization proudly and believe we are the upholders of this wonderful legacy. Moreover, I am proud that India has given important mathematical concepts such as zero, decimal, trigonometry, algebra and calculus to the world. Without these, we might still be living in the stone age.

Do you know the history of your country well?

Yes I know the history of my country pretty well! The name ‘India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. Also, India is the largest democracy in the world, the 7th largest Country in the world, and one of the most ancient civilizations. India invented the game of Chess years back and called it Chaturang (in Sanskrit), meaning 4 members of one army. It was extended later to make 11 members of one army and is the modern-day Chess as we all know.

Will you stay in India in the future?

Well my honest answer would be, NO ! Actually, I am planning to immigrate to Canada for better career prospect in the future. Though, I’ll be having short stays to meet my parents in India every year.
