I live and go to school at Good Shepherd Home for the Deaf in Thoothukudi, in the far south of India. Owned and operated by the India Evangelical Lutheran Church, Good Shepherd serves deaf and hard-of-hearing boys and girls, as well as other students with disabilities.
My favorite activity is playing Carrom. From Wikipedia: Carrom is a table-top game of Indian origin. The game is very popular in South Asia and the Middle East, and is known by various names in different languages. In South Asia, many clubs and cafés hold regular tournaments. Carrom is very commonly played by families, including children, and at social functions. It became very popular in United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms during the early 20th century.
I come from a marginalized class in the Indian Caste system. "Other Backward Class" is a collective term used by the Government of India to classify castes which are educationally or socially disadvantaged. It is one of several official classifications of the population of India, along with Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SCs and STs). [via Wikipedia]
