I live and go to school at the Siloam Boarding Home in Thirukoilure, India. Owned and operated by the Arcot Lutheran Church — an Indian, Dalit-led church body in the state of Tamil Nadu — Siloam serves about 700 girls between first and 12th Standard. Siloam is the largest LPGM-sponsored boarding home.
My favorite activity is dancing. Many boarding homes offer classes in both contemporary and traditional Indian & Tamil dance styles.
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]
